Electrical Acc & Wiring
  • Fits hand-operated 12V or 12/24V trolling motors
  • Two foot switches in one
  • Foot- or hand-activated on/off lever
Designed to fit all hand-operated 12V or 12/24V trolling motors, this trolling motor foot switch is equipped with two switches in one: momentary and on/off, has a foot or hand-activated on/off lever and comes with 32" heavy-duty marine wiring. Recommended and used by Tommy Martin, professional bass angler and fishing guide. Installation and wiring required.
Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 45 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Works Great I have been using these switches for years to control manual trolling motors. They hold up well in salt applications and are cheap enough to replace if they happen to break. Just added a second switch to my casting platform so that I don't have to bend over constantly to turn the motor on and off. Just set the speed, and use the foot switch and an extension handle on the trolling motor to work a shoreline. Much better setup than trolling motor with remote control, your hands are free to fish without messing with a remote all the time. March 8, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good Value I have used a bigfoot switch for years, and actively sought this one (my third) when #2 began to run hot and get balky after three years of regular salt water use. The trolling motor is my only propulsion on a fishing kayak, so it probably sees 100-200 ons and offs per session. Bass Pro was by far the best buy, about 2/3rds the price of some other sources. October 14, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by best switch As a full time fishing guide, I have found these switches to out last all others.. I have used them for years, And will continue to use these on my boat... August 5, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just what I needed I installed a trolling motor on the bow of my two man boat and had to use the hand control to guide the motor ( inconveniant ). The Big Foot eliminated the problem I was having . Thanks May 2, 2013

Works well on variable speed and 5 speed motors, You just set the motor for the speed you want to go and use the switch as a momentary on/off switch.

A: 
This will work on any hand control trolling motor, I don't like the foot pedal control trolling motors so I bought a hand control trolling motor for my bass boat and added an extension handle, I mounted 3 of these in my boat one on each side of the front deck and one in the center as far as speed and reverse you will have to adjust the speed by hand, I usually fish with mine on about half speed, the other thing great about these is that the bar can be flipped over the button so that you don't have stand on it.

A: 
Yes... and No. It is an on/off switch only and has no speed control as such. Speed is determined by the 5-speed switch on the motor. It is no different than connecting or disconnecting the battery.

A: 
Should be used on hand steer units..Speed is controlled by the hand switch, and is not effected by the foot switch.. Works fine at all speeds both forward, and reverse.

A: 
I think that the switch will work on all 12 volt electrics. Since the switch only controls the powerto the motor in an on/off way, there is no reason that it won't work with motors with different speeds as the speed and direction controls come after the power comes to the motor.

Installation Question

Details: 
Can anyone explain (or show a picture of) what the final install looks like on the tiller/control head of the trolling motor.

Does this connect between the battery leads of the trolling motor and the battery?

I think this may be the easiest way to tell
you.Take the clip off of the neg (Black)
wire of your trol. motor. connect that clip
to either wire of BF swicth.Now connect
the black wire from T-motor to the other wire of BF sw. Now put black clamp on
neg.batt. term. and red clamp from trol.
motor to poss. batt. term. TheBF sw. is
now wired in series on the neg. wire.
Hope that helps!

Honestly not sure what amp rating is. But I can say.. These switches are made for up to 36 volt systems. I am a full time fishing guide. I use my stuff harder than the average guy.. NEVER had one burn up.. The rubber contact cover will eventually go bad, thus requiring a change-out.. But never has one fried......

No, you have to steer by hand; but it frees you up pretty good if you don't have room for a fully operational foot controlled trolling motor.

A: 
All you do is splice the foot switch in between the battery and the motor on the negative side. Anywhere on the negative wire between the battery and the motor cut the wire and then attach the two ends of the foot switch wires to both ends created from cutting the wire.

There is a wiring diagram included with the foot switch. My trolling motor is 12-volts and I connected the 2 wires from the foot switch to break the ground portion of the circuit.
