Lowrance Ghost Trolling Motor


The Lowrance Ghost has a designed from scratch brushless motor with the most thrust and the longest run time of any trolling motor on the market that additionally eliminates sonar interference plus other benefits including integrated Lowrance sonar options, waypoint anchoring and an industry-leading three-year warranty.

Ghost’s unique propulsion technology in its brushless motor generates thrust that is 25-percent greater than current competitors and delivers 45-percent longer run times on the same charge – equivalent to nearly one additional day of operation. The combination of precision manufacturing, rare earth materials, and a cutting-edge weedless prop design provides high-output thrust with long running efficiency.

Ghost’s brushless motor helps eliminate noisy operation and unlike common brush motors, has no brushes to wear out, ensuring greater reliability and longer life. The brushless motor emits no electromagnetic interference – giving anglers the clearest sonar views possible with zero on-screen interference.

Storm Arashi Glide Bait

Buy at Tackle Warehouse and Discount Tackle.

Read the back story on this bait here.

After years of design, testing, adjustments and more testing with Brandon Palaniuk, the Arashi Glide Bait delivers a fine-tuned, consistent, stable glide action at every speed. Developed to sink slowly in a slight head down position, this bait responds to the slightest line movement. Swimming in an exaggerated “S” action that piques interest of big bass, a quick snap of the rod tip turns the AGB 180 degrees, triggering strikes from followers. Versatile action, triple-pin hinge construction merged with swiveling hooks for reduced leverage and just the right color patterns result in an masterpiece of lure design.

  • 7 1/2 inches long
  • 3 1/8-ounce
