Minnkota Maxxum 65SC For Sale

12 posts in this topic

I have a Minnkota Maxxum 65SC foot contol bow mount 42" shaft trolling motor for sale. It came off my bass boat which is a 2002 but has only seen two years of use. It is a 12/24 volt system but is right now only set up as a 24 volt system. The only reason I am selling it is because I replaced it with one that has universial sonar. $300 or best offer. Any question you can email me at pmuggli@yahoo.com or call me at 507 661 0840 I am in the Waterville area

Here is a picture of it on my boat.

Say I have a few questions. How long is the shaft on that motor? You can adjust the height anyway right? Does it have any slide on bracket that you need for mounting? Is it easy to change it to a 12 volt system or would it just not have enough power w/12? And finally....would you convince my wife I need a new trolling motor? LOL My wife is better with bottom line pricing, so if ya want to e-mail me what that might be, I will put the address at the bottom.

I will be in Mankato this weekend, if she says yes I will get ahold of you before then.

Have a good one!

I forgot to put the shaft lenght in before but it is in there now but antways it is 42". I would not run it just as a 12 volt system not enough power. If you do alot of fishing 24 volts is the only way to go. The base of the trolling motor is the mounting bracket

Does it have the same style plug as other Minnkota, such as the 765? Is the mount base similar to accept the slide mount?

This trolling motor was set up with Marinco plug, but if your trolling motor was a 24 volt system you can take the plug off of it. Minnkota make two different removable bases one for the maxxums and one for autopilots. Give me a call if you have more question or are interested.

      This time of year inside weedlines with sand have been good historically.  Find some cabbage and you should be golden.   Those walleyes could show up here and there on cranks in that 10 foot range too.

      I do not fish bass very often but have had good luck using straight braided line for bass and walleye. Very few bugs out on the water! Shore bugs usually only out in the late evenings. Very few jet skis and water skiers on most of Vermilion most of the time. Weekend Holidays can see a lot of traffic. Some one else will surely answer your bass bait questions ! Tons of rusty crayfish in the East end that the bass love! Cliff

      Hey guys. My wife and I are coming up June 10th for a week of bass and pike fishing. Staying in Niles Bay area. Had a few more questions, hoping for some insight from some locals/regulars.  I was wondering ab ou how bad the bugs usually are in mid June, mosquitos,  biting flies and no see ums. Hoping when are are out in the boat fishing they will pretty much leave us alone.         I mentioned going to Vermilion on a thread on our local Ohio fishing forum. A few guys commented that it was a very busy lake with lots of jet ski and tubers. I was thinking if I wanted a more remote feel for a day maybe renting a boat and taking the portage to Trout Lake. I know our 40 hp is too big. I was also thinking of trying the river below the dam launching on 8 mile creek. Saw that on an episode of Ultimate Fishing Adventures. I was wondering if that area is limited to 25 hp motors. What would be the pros and cons of each spot?     I know V is tannic stained. We use pretty much braid on all our poles. Do you braid users feel you need a flouro leader when  bass fishing. Here in Ohio our water is rarely clear enough to worry about that.   One last thing what are the go to colors for tubes and senkos for bass?        Thanks for any help info you can give.                    Mr. Basskisser

      Cathedral     brown with black specks senko style has been really good.

      Did you access that stretch from Wilson Park, or below Cathedral High School @eyeguy 54?  
    • phishnerd
      I guess a crayfish pattern might work up there eh?
    • eyeguy 54
      Nice area to get the yak out in.  One of the smallies wanted to share lunch with me.

      Fished spring park today, tried walleye early with no luck.  Switched to bass and managed to find a few in about 10 feet over weeds.  Caught most of them on a chatterbait
