I just got s used 1775 pro V with a 2001 90hp Merc 2 stroke. Runs great but will only troll down to 3 mph on GPS. I pull a LOT of shad raps and want to troll down to about 2.3 mph. Any suggestions on how to get it slower?

Back troll.Drift sock,turn down idle on outboard(if you can manually),switch props,get trolling block behind prop wash.Get small outboard to really control boat!I prefer .7mph on the low end for planer boards/ down riggers/dipseys/ shad raps/spinners.c63

Drift sock attached to the bow eye. That's what I use to do with my boat before I had my Terrova and it really slows you down. I still do it sometimes when backtrolling in the wind just to help hold the front of my boat in line. Helps the control A LOT!

If you have a smooth running engine you can turn the idle down.

Tilt your motor so you aren't pushing the max amount of water.
