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.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.

      Looking to get a different depth finder for my boat, one with GPS and side imaging. I have $650 to spend, and have found a new Helix 7 SI and a used 998c SI HD with about 800 hours on it.  They both are $600.  Which one would you get and why?   Thanks!
