Trolling motor issues

3 posts in this topic

My trolling motor (Maxxum 74) is stuck on 100%. has anyone ever changed the dial (I think it's a rheostat), and if so is it difficult to do??? where do you get the part, or how much was the charge to have a repair shop do it?

I would call Minn Kota and get the phone number for the rep in your area. The Rep will be able to get you the parts you need and also be able to fixes it for you in a timely manner. Capra’s is a certified Minn Kota shop

last weekend was out on a buddies boat, 12 volt kota, stuck on full boar, except this was a different issue, the variable resistor shorted and just gave it full ampeorage the whole time, melted the thing, kinda cool but expensive

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
