Default trolling motor

I have a small boat and the outboard (2) on the back is maxed out. I
want to get a small battery operated trolling motor to be mounted on
the bow. Is there a bracket or something that will allow a bow mount.
Thanks

No,,,, they don't make a bow mount for a trolling motor

It's too hard to "troll" with one mounted on the front

That all depends on the style and make of the motor you are going to buy.
Also, if this boat is like a small row/john boat, you can attach a transom
mount on the side of the boat and still control it by the handle.

Au contraire, mon ami. Here's a link to BPS's bow or stern mount

I see you don't know the asker of the question :-)

He is the news group's troll,, (my reason for saying it's too hard to
"troll" with a bow mount ) or the most stupid person that has ever held
a rod,, he has been on here for many years, asking questions just like
this. He has seen hundreds of post about bow mounts here over the years,
he just wanted someone to answer him on the net,, he gets off on that,
and he had nothing else worth posting he could think of.

If he had been a new member or someone wanting to take up fishing I
would have given him the proper answer. I just wanted to see his
response when I said there was no such thing :-)

Sorry for the confusion, I forget new people read this group

Yes it is a small boat with a motor on the back. I need to find a
place to install a trolling motor. I looked for pictures on the web.
Will search side mount. A further question is can I fully charge the
battery via solar. My catch rate is good but lookin to improve it next
season.

Sure,,a standard solar charger will fully charge a 12 volt battery in
about 14 days,, if the sun is bright
