However, if you have wind or current to contend with, you are going to want to go with a 24V unit of at least 80 lbs thrust.
The 80 lb thrust won't give you twice the speed, but it will give you enough thrust, even with passengers, to handle windy conditions.
If you are pushing more than 21 feet of boat, you may need even larger. A pontoon catches a LOT of wind.
Bow mount trolling motors tend to need a longer shaft than the standard 30" to 36". For a bow mount, I'd go at least 42" shaft.
Transom mount, at the back, are more forgiving on shaft length. A 36" shaft would fit most small to medium fishing boats.
Remember, the prop needs to be about 10" to 12" below the surface. If you have some guys in the back of the boat, it can raise the bow six inches or more.
