Trolling motor ?

3 posts in this topic

Anybody have any ideas how a guy can lock a troling motor to its mount. Its a minnkota with the little wing nut that holds it in place. I live in an apartment and store the boat in the basement which from time to time i hear about something getting stolen, aslo i am tired of taking it of and putting it away each time i use the boat. thanks!

By your description I assume you have MinnKota's quick release system. You should find a small hole in the rear right corner of the unit where you can insert a padlock so the motor can't be slid out of the bracket.

Yep, put a padlock on the mount. You might need to drill a bigger hole to get a good lock on it.

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
