I have a 13 with a 25 of the main lakes I plan on fishing is a large lake with the traditional freshwater fish including stripers. the one problem is that it is a 9'9' or less motor reg. trolling would work but is there a better way...throwing a 9'9 to the back of a 13 may be too heavy...swapping out the 25 for the 9'9 limits me on other areas/power/distance.

how have others solved this?

If only temporary, put the kicker on it(assuming you have one). If not then rent a boat;)

Always wondered about these limited Hp lake situations. How do you convince the enforcement officers that you aren't using your large engine? Pull the prop and leave it with the tow vehicle??

There's a lake near me with the same 10Hp limit. Over the weekend, as I was driving by, there was a flock of 8-10 boats with 25-35Hp engines that had just put in. None seemed to have kickers, all had engines tilted down, so either they were motoring around with their electric trolling motors, or they were running outlaw. Curious what the enforcement of such limits is in other areas?

find an 18 nissan and put a 9.9 cap on it. No one will know the differance. The 18 is the identical weight and size of the 9.9

Heard that some lakes will check model #. If the tag is gone, instant fine etc.
