Trolling motor battery

4 posts in this topic

I am getting a Minn Kota Endura 55# transom trolling motor that will be used on two different boats. What battery is the best to get? Dick's Sporting Goods has a Minn Kota brand dual purpose battery for 90 bucks. Is that a good deal? Also I will be hooking up a depth finder to the same battery. I don't know if that matters what I get.

I just picked up a Mills Fleet Farm Resolute brand battery....$55 I believe for a Deep Cycle with 175RC.....should check them out. My other option (which I am still considering) was a Werker from Batteries Plus....it is their top of the line Deep Cycle with out getting an Optima or an AGM.

Ellroy, if this battery is just for your trolling motor and electrics, get a deep cycle battery, not a dual purpose. If you use this for your starter motor on the back, get a dual purpose.

Good advice. Get yourself a deep cycle with a large reserve. I get mine at Sam's Club and have no problem with them lasting for years. I believe I have one thats going on 10 years. Keep the fluid up and charge the battery after every use.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
