Ted's trolling tips 
The 3rd Hand….TR-! Autopilot the finest in automatic boat control.A TR-1 Liberator AutoPilot

Have you ever wished that you had a 1st mate in your boat to help you when trolling? Someone to keep you on course while you are setting lines, putting out trolling boards, or reeling in a fish? 

Well, I have finally found the answer in a TR-1 Liberator AutoPilot. This unit is truly awesome! After using the TR-1 this past year, I just couldn’t run a boat without one installed in it. The TR-1 keeps my boat going forward in a pre-set, compass-oriented direction, while I attend to other duties. This is especially valuable in tournament conditions where time is critical and the winds are always trying to blow me off course.

Another great feature of the TR-1 is the tachometer. By setting the tach to a precise RPM on my kicker motor, I can return to that exact speed each and every time. Precision trolling speed and replication is often the difference between catching fish and watching others catch fish. 

Give the TR-! Autopilot the finest in automatic boat control a try, you’ll be glad that you did!
