Ghost noise

Postby BMX Bassin » Wed Nov 27, 2019 8:44 am

Has the noise been addressed in the Ghost Trollingmotor? About to buy one but now I’m reconsidering after watching a underwater comparison with other motors. I have heard it was the prop. But noise is noise. I know that video was back in August.

Ghost sounds

Postby BMX Bassin » Wed Nov 27, 2019 12:53 pm

I was about to buy a Lowrance ghost trollingmotor and I watched a video that showed how noisy they are underwater. But this video was back in August so I was wondering if anything came about it or if it was the prop?
thanks

My guess is there are not alot of Ghost owners available to comment.

Try your post at the BassBoat Central trolling motor site:

Despite having been told the noise complaint was BS, I have kept quiet about this only because I hadn't yet run a Ghost trolling motor. Last week I spent a day on DVL running the Ghost motor, and now I can say with certainty it is quiet, and the bass agree with me.

This thing about the Ghost being louder than any of the other motors on the market, think about the trolling motor prop turning in the water. That will create more noise that any fish will hear/feel way before any sound from the motor will be an issue. Learn how to keep your foot off the button and you will help yourself more than buying any supposed quieter motor!
