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.

      Yeah, but this one is packed with useful information and tips, and not everyone who browses the site today saw this in 2015. It's really a great thread, and that's why I bumped it.    Wouldn't it be more sensible and more useful to the members of the site to simply edit the title and remove the "2015"?   ***How about it, mods? Rejuvinate this thread with a new title!***

      Has anyone tried out the polar bird hub houses? The floor looks like a neat concept I wonder how well it works. Looking for a small 2 man hub so I don't have to drag my huge heavy 6 man thermal hub when I go alone.

      I don't care if dnr checks me multiple times a day or I have to prove that I am not doing anything wrong. That is how they catch the guys who are doing stuff wrong. I am always legal so What do I care I have been checked what like 5-6 times in my life so far even if every time they were a bad_boy ( they were not ) who cares I have to deal with them 10-15 mins out of my day? Think about how many pricks they have to deal with every day.
