Has anyone used the optional sail for power to troll while fishing? I was wondering since it does not roller furl and has stays that their maybe to much going on between rod and sail control. I have used sails before where you can fly the sail form your seat but this may seem to have to much difficulty

My guess is that without being able to furl it, you would lack consistent speed control in any good winds. I'd use it to get to the fishing grounds and then go with the Mirage Drive from there.
