That's a great deal. I'd snap it up, but I'd have to replace my front t/m also since it's 12V. Someone's going to get a great deal.

To whom ever bought it!!! Fill out and send in the warranty card!!!! If you use this motor at all you will need it. On the second brain board in three years.

You will love the motor however. MinnKota just needs to get ALL the bugs worked out.

Chris,

We have been using a vantage for 4 years until about 3 weeks ago when my dad forgot to hit the up button... To make a long story short, it is in the bottom of a lake due to the mounting bracket busting!!! These motors are in such high demand that you can't find them anywhere!!! That was until I checked FM and Valv had a new one for $200.00 less than anywhere else. cool.gif

They have one on ebay right now and it is a $350 but it says it does not go up and down but motor runs. Would that be the "brain board" and if so how much would it have cost you? Might not be a bad deal if the board isn't too ridiculous.

Don't get me wrong. Just making sure that if you had no such experience with them that you are covered. They are a great motor and Minnkota stands behind them well. Just trying to head off any heartache with the service center if you need service on it.

I heard those motors break off once you hit 35 mph or so..

Eyes', whats up with the way the guy in the back of the boat is holding his rod in your avitar? Is he making sure his guides are straight or really concentrating on looking for a nibble?

Yeah I would say that the 35 mph is about right!!! I'm just glad it wasn't me who did it!!!

The guy in the back was trying to catch a fish... I think he caught 1 fish that day!!! We had to listen to a ton of crying!!! It was the day you and your dad were out there...

eyes - probably more like around 30 mph, since your fancy Ranger isn't even capable of 35!! blush.gif

      I was up over the weekend to do cabin duties. I did get laker trout at cascade river Friday mornings it was 17 inches but made for great trout and eggs breakfast. Agree with maple bacon longjohn and Chet's doughnut. Also a must stop for me is trail center for lunch the 3 Cheese grilled cheese is amazing with a chocolate and peanut butter milkshake. Just look at this lunch

      I second Crooked Lake. Super clear water too. I kayaked in there recently and was amazed at how many sunnies are in there. First calm wind day I get I'm gonna get the yak in there and bring my flyrod.

      I woke up early Saturday tired and letting all the excuses in my head convince me to go back to bed. Cold front, high winds, clear skies. Screw it, I'm going anyway!   Glad I did. The wind was rough for yak fishing but I found them stacked right off a weedline and caught 7 bass within an hour on a stretch less than 75 yds.    Ended the day with the pig of a bass pictured and a nice Pike for dinner. Once the sun came out and warmed up the water I got action on the flats. That's where the big bass and pike came from. 8 bass total, one nice pike, a few short strikes on the flats. Wind sucked and what the heck is up with needing a sweater on the first weeked of Summer?!?! I'm not in the South anymore haha.

      Despite the occasional rain shower and relentless wind, had a great day on Fish Lake. Decent sized pan fish,  several out of slot, and 3 "eaters"  Walleyes were caught . The kids and wife all caught fish at a pace that kept me busy baiting, netting..(repeat) for a few hours. Not only was I fueling the addiction, but gaining points for future fishing trips. The only low point was when we went "Island exploring", someone was either in a hurry or just completely selfish and left their campsite garbage strewn to the point that it filled a 13 gal garbage bag.

      Nice catch Cliff. Were you rigging or bobbering?
