Trolling motor repair

6 posts in this topic

Sunday I hit some waves and the trolling motor bounced up and dropped down into the water frown.gifmad.gif. This bent the base mounting plate and broke off the part of the housing that rotates the motor and keeps it on the base. The motor is Minnkota 55# autopilot about 6 years old. Does any one know of a place where I could take it for repairs or get parts for it.

thanks

Mike

P.S. I live in Waconia

I would give Minn Kota a call. I believe thier service center is in Mankato.

there are several places you can go, but if you have someone in Mankato, take it right to them for repair. that's the factory right up on the hilltop area. good luck.

If you go to the Minnkota website, click on "service", then click on "find an Authorized Service Center". Once that window pops up, simply enter your zip code, and you will be able to view numerous dealers near you. There is a reputable place in Bloomington (don't think I can give their name on here) that appears to be only 20 miles or so from Waconia.

I asked a similar question to yours last year and received good feedback from this establishment.

Check out the SW fourm. Ricks Taxidermy is a sponsor and an authorized Minn Kota repair dude type place. Give them a call.

      Just wondering why no more fishing reports/updates from lake of the woods tourism on this site? They still put one on LSF every week or so. On a side note was up to the lake last weekend for some maintenance to the cabin went for a walk down graceton beach toward zipple. Lots of debris on shore from melting ice. Picked up what we could, lots left.

      I echo Spearing Machine's comment- Ludlows is a top notch resort. Terrific staff, nice accommodations, and provides a great experience for any staying. Our cabin isn't too far from there and we have family members who stay there often when we run out of space at the cabin and I have stayed there myself as well.

      Thanks man, I am really looking forward to deer season now that I'm going to bow hunt.  I have his duck duck goose book and its great. I commonly pluck ducks and geese so i can use that delicious fat.    In that book he had a recipe for duck wing soup and I changed it slightly and made a giant pot of soup with the turkey legs and thighs. It was delicious!

      Well this was fun! I fished a NE metro lake Saturday morning. Found tons of crappies in 4 to 5 feet of water. Water temps around 54 degrees. They were getting demolished by pike in the shallows, what a spectacular show they put on!    Couldn't find a crappie bigger than 8 inches so none were kept then this pike came along. It took about 7 minutes to fight with such light tackle and I thought for sure I'd lose it. I'm a kayak angler so this got really exciting! If the jig didnt set right at the corner of it's mouth of course the line would cut immediately but this still took a lot of careful fighting.    Can't wait for the season to start in a few weeks!!
