24V Upgrade Question

Question

Umma Gumma

I'm upgrading to a 24v trolling motor. I have a Marinco plug installed that was operating at 12v, so switching the plug and getting to 24v is easy.

What I'm wondering is if I can still hook up a depth finder to one of the two batteries I'll be using for the trolling motor to supply power to the device, instead of running new wires back to the starting battery? Can one battery in a 24v system supply just 12v to a device, even when the trolling motor is running?

You can draw 12v supply from either battery. Just hook up to one of them.

I changed from a 12 v system to a 24 v system. My Lund has a power plug installed, can't I just pull the wiring off of my old trolling motor and put it on my new one or is there a difference in the plugs?

I would suggest getting your 12 volt supply off of the negative battery feeding the 24 volt system less chance for interference that way.

It depends if its a 2,3, or 4 prong plug.

If I'm understanding you correctly and the trolling motors wiring and plugs are the same yes it should work.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
