Gibby,

All I can tell ya is to shop around. Prices on Minn-Kota motors vary from store to store. In the case of a defective motor or missing parts or something like that all retail outlets have been instructed by Johnson Outdoors that the customer needs to go through the factory direct. So the warranty is the same at all places. Basically I would shop by price knowing that info.

Good Luck smile.gif

Gibby, Cabelas is pretty competitive on motors,however, i see your in NE. You may want to check with Reeds in Walker Mn to avoid sales tax. Reeds will also ship free like Cabelas.

I've seen many trolling motors in the cabela's thrift store, obviously they have teken them back. I wouldn't buy anything from anybody other then cabela's, they will take back just about anyting, there service is amazing, reeds isn't even close. Period

Hey in my experience it doesn't matter if it is Reeds or Cabela's they are both great. I like to go to Reeds though because they often have deals on out of season stuff for a better price that Cabela's. Everything that I have bought from either store has been great. Derek is right Cabela's doesn't do the service work on the motors. There reason they always have some in back is someone buys them and they work but then return them for what ever reason so they can not sell them as a new item. The motors there aren't ones that have had service done unless they are listed as refurbished. Consider Reed's though they are a excellent sporting good store at least you can save the tax like Derek said.

Last fall I bought a PSE bow from Cabela's and I went back to the store 30 days (exactly) later and it was on sale that weekend for $70 off. I happened to have a receipt in my car and they gave me the entire difference back + tax. I didn't even think it was worth asking, but they were happy to do it for me. That is great customer service. I had shot the bow about 500 times and they still refunded the difference to the sale price. A couple years before that they took a rod back that broke half way along the shaft and they took that back no questions asked. Those are two things to think about 1) Low price guarantee for at least 30 days 2) Great return policy for at least three months on products.

thats exactly what i'm talking about, cabela's will take them back if you have a problem and some of those trolling motors have bben seriously used, almost hammered. no body reeds or any one else beats cabelas, like i said period, My brother went in the other day and was looking for a pair of boots, low cut good to around 20, 30 degrees. the gal wasnt sure if this boot would meet his needs so she told him to bring them back next YEAR if they didnt work for a full credit or exchange, hell i've worn shoes for a day and the place wouldn't take them back My son brought his daiwa goldcast back, it wasn't working right, we thought they worked on them. they don't, we had no receipt and was in the wrong box yet the guy gives us full credit and we upgraded to a different model. unbelievable service, just a few examples. Know i'm telling you no body period! beats cabelas service, sure someone might beat their price but no one beats their service

Also is this a new boat? Marine boat dealers get the stuff for cost. Wholesale. If it is less than 1 yr since you bought it they should give you a break on the price. Some places alway hose guys on the price and that kinda sucks.
Hate to tell some but they could at least match any price you see if they are a dealer.
Also they can go alot lower than you see. Some things are ok some u will pay full price. I got a vantage this year for a 100bucks less than I could get anywhere.

Reeds cabellas u name it. It was all 100 to 200 bucks more. They wouldnt budge on the lowrance stuff tho. Shop around for your stuff it adds up!

      I would not call a casino an active income, everything is very situational there, it does not depend on you, but on the casino itself, so you need to be very careful about this

      I agree with you. But you will definitely need better components to set up an Rl craft hosting service. First of all, you will need the latest version of Forge. For hosting rlcraft requires these details  .  Furthermore, hosting a server also requires 3 to 4GB of RAM.

      Hei, jeg vil gjerne anbefale deg det beste nettcasinoet: top casino norge. De første tegnene på de beste virtuelle klubbene vises i begynnelsen av spillet eller når du oppretter en konto. Institusjonen skal ha et tiltalende design og brukervennlig grensesnitt. det er mulig at mange nye brukere ikke forstår hvordan de skal trykke på knappene riktig og raskt forlater ressursen. De fremtredende knappene og det intuitive grensesnittet er spesielt viktig.

      On the south end...  Walleyes are starting to stack up in various areas of the south shore with some good fall fishing taking place.  Most anchored up jigging with fatheads and frozen shiners.   Various techniques are still proving effective in catching, but as water temps cool, jigging will be the desire of walleyes and has been successful this past week.   Trolling crankbaits is still catching fish.  If you are struggling catching the fish you are jigging or the fish are spread out, try pulling cranks which will put your lure in front of many fish in which you only need a taker here and there for a successful day. Good numbers of fish are still being caught pulling spinners, especially over flats or on the outside of structure.  On the Rainy River...   Some very good reports on the Rainy River this week.  Shiners are in the river and so are the walleyes.  Is this the big run, not sure, but most are catching fish, and some big ones.   Anglers report nice fish both in Four Mile Bay and the river, but these fish are moving around.  Try different spots until you find them.  Look for clouds of emerald shiners, they show up nicely on most sonar.   This is the fall run and it should only get better.  These river fish are moving, once you find them, it can be a memorable day.  Looking for fish, trying different spots can be helpful in finding fish.  Anchoring up in the same spot all day hoping the fish come through can make for a tough day.     Jigging with a frozen shiner or trolling cranks in the river are both catching walleyes. Sturgeon activity continues to pick up as water cools.  Most fishing the holes of the river.  A 3 - 4 ounce weight with lower current has been sufficient combined with a sturgeon rig loaded with crawlers or crawlers and frozen shiners. Fall is a great time to take your own boat on the small waters of the Rainy River.  Boat ramps scattered from Wheeler's Point to Baudette east to Birchdale.  Up at the NW Angle...  Walleye fishing stays consistently very good up at the Angle.  Walleyes are being caught using the three techniques mentioned above.  Some fishing MN waters, others venturing amongst the Ontario side of the lake.  Good fish being caught on both sides.   In addition to fish still over deep mud, traditional structure is also holding walleyes.  Points, rock islands, sunken islands, neck down areas, etc.   Some nice muskies were caught this week.  October is traditionally a great month with trolling shorelines in the mix of techniques.   The government of Canada has officially announced they are lifting the COVID vaccination requirement and is allowing the ArriveCan app to be optional starting October 1, 2022.  This will make the drive to the NW Angle for many, which includes about 40 miles through Canada, once again possible.
