Pin Point Trolling Motors Still Available?


Greg Clusiau

Question

Does anyone know if they are still selling PinPoints? I noticed that the latest Cabela's catalog had everything but the PinPoint. I, along with several friends, own one and am a little concerned. What if I need service at some point down the road? Can it be done? Thanks in advance. GC

I have a pinpoint system also. NO ONE FIXES EM. From what Ive heard they are pretty much out of business or bankrupt. The only ones you see for sale are the ones that the stores have left over which is why they are fairly cheap now. They sell the ones they have and thats it. If they could by more they wouldnt.

There is knowone that I know of that fixes em my system broke down last fall. Im replacing it with minnkota stuff. There are tons of places that fix minnkota. I know of several other guys who have pinpoint stuff and cant get them fixed. Shows you how reliable they are. If you find a place that fixes um post it here or e- mail me i would fix it if it was possible.

Are you sure motorguide fixes them? I would hate to throw it away its not even 2 years old.

Hey guys,
If you currently have a pinpoint and need service you can get it taken care of in Bloomington at the Motor Clinic. Plus all of the Mercury/Mortorguide repair shops will soon be able to repair them. Right now Motorguide is working on a brand new motor which will bring back the pinpoint technology but it will be even better, more user friendly and easier to service. One of the best places to get your Motorguide/Pinpoint needs taken care of is Thorn Brothers in Fridley. Hope this helps put your worries to rest!!

Thanks Brian,

That's a load off my mind. I never thought about it until my buddy, another PinPoint owner, planted the seed.

Say, do you ever ice fish the perch on Cass?
I never get over that far but have thought about trying it. I usually perch on Winnie, Leech, or Bowstring. I live just outside of Hibbing (Keewatin).

Heading to Red tomorrow.

Once again, thanks...GC

Greg,

Yup, we hit the perch on Cass. I'm sure it is similar to the lakes you mentioned except we have a harder time getting around.

How was Red?

Brian,

Red wasn't very kind to us on Saturday. We had a good spot lined up out of Hudec's but didn't go there because of the contest and all the extra traffic.

We went out of Roger's and set up three times before we found fish. Darn cold out with that wind. I caught 5 and my buddy and his son caught 5-6. Slow but nice fish, as usual. I also had a couple very nice eyes on but lost them both? Tried to force one up the hole and got bit off. I could see the fish. Looked somewhere in the 5-7 pound class.

I called the Motor Clinic in bloomington today. They do still fix pinpoints. Their contact number is on the motorguide webpage.
From what I have heard the motorguides that hook-up to the pinpoint are sonar only. They do not depth track. Is this right?

Deemo,

The current Mortorguides only provide a graph with info, like you said. They are hoping to release the new depth tracking motors in a few months.

      BW is not a designated Trout lake. The limit is the same as state which I think is 5 bows. Don't think there is a size limit either since they don't breed.

      Rotes, Hi, I just joined this forum and these corner caps are just what I have been looking for. Is it possible at this late date to get a set of these made for my Lund? The only difference I can see is the color of the material. Would you be willing to make a set for me? Thanks, [email protected]

      Any move requires time and effort, but if you turn to a moving company for help, then some of the problems will disappear immediately. Firstly, the guys from the moving services always take care of the client's property, pack and carefully transfer your things to the car. Secondly, when moving with movers, you do not have to worry about the road, they choose the fastest and safest way, as they have extensive experience in transportation.

      Anybody know how much the lake temps have dropped?   Are people have the most success with minnows vs crawlers when fishing with live bait lately, or are crawlers still working?
    • Kettle
      Snuck out last night, water Temps down to 54-56, last Thurs mid 60s. Fish were finicky. Leaves are changing quickly here, lots falling. Two weeks should be a lot better in the woods

      I agree with the previous comment, you could save a lot of money by making your website first .. its design .. and then if you want to move .. but if you want, you can immediately ..-) look here: https://digitalsuits.co/hire-developers/hire-shopify-developers/
    • valtt79
      I think that even at the initial stage, you need to consult with specialists who have been working in this field for a long time .. and then you will really get the result .. otherwise you can spend a lot of time and in the end you will have to redo everything .. for example, look here: https://www.softformance.com/services/software-consulting-company/

      The best solution in this situation is to create the software yourself, and then turn to testers who will check everything. Although, if you manage to develop software, then you will have the strength to test it yourself
