That's awesome! My 9yr old caught one just undersize back in Perdido Bay in Orange Beach last week. I was shocked when he pulled it in. I didn't think they were in the bays at all. Was cool to...

100% positive. It does so even when my hand is not on the throttle. it seems like small adjustments, but the trim percentage reading does change from, say, 25% to 30% and back constantly.

No idea. I was trying to anchor in 2' to fish, with my nose into the current. The wind picked up really fast and caught my t-top and spun me around. So, I gently trimmed up and put it in reverse...
