Are you looking for an on-board or portable charger? I just bought a Pro-Mariner on-board charger. Haven't had a chance to install it yet, but I'm sure someone here will give you a review of them. In the past, I've used a MinnKota portable charger and I really like it. Simple and fast. I'm sorry, but I don't remember the amps off-hand. I can check when I get home.

I just installed a 12 amp two bank ProMariner in the boat. It has these features.

1. Distributed On Demand Tech. Basically it will distribute the charge to what needs it most. For expample it may put 10 amps to the trolling battery and two the the starting/lights/live well battery.

2. Automatic Multi Stage charging. Charges, conditions and maintains battery. Can be left plugged in for extended times without battery damage.

I ran the plug to a bulkhead so I can plug it in without climing in the boat.

I don't know if this one is better than others but the two featurs listed are good things to have.

        Yes sir! 8ft-9ft rods seem to work the best IMO.

      4/23/17     Crappies still biting in west Metro area lakes. Water temp in the mid 50's now, and the fish are moving a little shallower. We caught tons of 8 to 11 inch crappies in about ten feet of water, with some weeds on the bottom. Fished a jig tipped with a Powerbait minnow about four feet below a slip-float for great success. Some sunfish starting to show up in the same areas. Water temp probably won't rise much this week with the forecast of cooler temps and quite a bit of rain, but as the water does warm fish should continue to move shallower and get more aggressive. Check out my You Tube channel for some short video clips and a full length show about springtime crappie fishing. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.
