English term or phrase:bass prop
De 'bass prop' is een schroef voor een 'bass boat', maar wat betekent 'bass' in dit geval? Toch niet 'baars', (een boot voor uitsluitend de baarsvangst???) en zeker niet 'bas' (al klinken die motoren nog zo laag)...
Explanation: AS you yourself suggest this is indeed a special prop for fishing with bass boats for
Many boaters who also use their bass boat for family outings may wish to carry two props; one with a higher pitch for fishing and higher top end, and one with a lower pitch for a better hole-shot when pulling skiers or inner tubes. Lots of anglers I know carry a spare prop on board with a slightly different pitch for exactly these situations.
