THX for that info!
I will probably put a 30 to 50 LB. thrust motor on.
Do you have any recommendations of which Company OR battery size??

I use a 30 LB. on my kayak and that is plenty of horse power. I can get 5 MPH on high speed. I have a lithium battery with 100ah but it cost $500 and probably weighs less than 20 pounds. The more thrust you have, the quicker the battery runs down.

That is exactly the set up I am thinking of buying!
A Minn Kota Endura C2 30 lb. thrust with a Amped Outdoors
60ah lithium battery.
Do you think the 60ah will be sufficient????

I also have a 55ah gel battery and I can fish at least 5-6 hours with it, no problem. I just don't go all out during that time, just stop and go.

What is the name of the 100ah battery and where did you get it? I have been looking for a Amped 60ah
and everyone says they are on back order until the end of April???

I bought this one on EBay, Lithium 12v Battery BMS LCD 100Ah LiFePO4 Deep Cycle. Comes from China and I built a box covered with fiberglass to store it. It come with a Lithium charger as well. You could just buy a55ah battery on EBay just to get you started for $100. That way I always have a fresh one if I want to fish all day.

Well I am still trying to put together a mount here.
Your best bet is to google Utube videos on making a kayak trolling motor mount.
There are several different styles and materials to make one.
Good Luck!
