I recently have been setting up my boat for muskie trolling. Now that its set up, my question to you all out there is. Can I use my 2 stroke motor to troll? I have a 225 efi mercury. I do not have a kicker yet, but I want to get out there and troll for those bad boys. Will it effect my motor or not. Thanks for your input.

I don't think you will slow troll. I trolled with ywo stroke engines for years. Open them up now and then to clean them out and you should make it for a short while.

Fishermen have been trolling with 2 strokes since they were invented. A 225 hp ain't gonna get ya very slow though I'd guess. I think the new oil injected and fuel injected engines make it even easier on them as far as trolling goes. Like muskiebobsr says, open it up now and then and you'll be fine.
