Looking for a battery

4 posts in this topic

I had a trolling motor batter crap out on me last week. I plan on replacing both batteries next Spring. However, I don't want to replace one now and then store the new battery over the Winter in a month.

Any suggestions for where I can get a used battery for very cheap to help me limp through the next month and a half? Lots of guys must have older, but not crapped out trolling motor batteries that they plan on replacing next Spring... Anyone know if a battery place might sell me a still good battery from a used trolling motor set (where one crapped out and the owner replaced them both)? I'd guess not.

I'm in Fargo and get in or around Crookston, Grand Forks, and Detroit Lakes frequently. Any possible solutions in any of these areas would be great.

Thanks,

email me or call I think I can help you out I have two deep cell ups batteries that I had in my boat. I got two new ones last spring. These are changed every three years by one of my customers. they are much better than a normal deep cycle.

I don't know how much capacity you need but since your not expecting much and plan on only using it for a month or so, you might be able to get by with just a used car battery from a salvage yard. It would be cheap and wouldn't give you a lot of time on the water but for a month?

      I love these fish! The attitude is always fun and they taste great. The strip of y bones can be cut right out with a little effort.    I know where I'll be early in the morning May 13th with topwaters and swimbaits!

      Grubens did permits the 2016 season. Fortune bay stopped writing BWCA permits the end of the 2015 season. Sally retired and that ended the permits at the bay.  Some day we will be able to buy permits on line and print them.

      The video shown in the link posted above shows most of the fish they're handling going back because they're not ready or too green. The video was from 4/14 so I would bet they are done as that was 1 1/2 weeks ago. Cutfoot was done in less than a week. Cliff will be able to tell you for sure when then finished but I'd guess they were done by the end of last week.
