Minnkota Co-pilot


Guest

Question

  • 0

Has anyone tried the Minn-kota Co-polit that is basically a remote control for the trolling motor? I have seen it in some stores and have wondered if it is worth the cash.

Any input is greatly appreciated.

I bought one last summer and it was worth every penny! Being somewhat "foot challenged" the co-pilot made boat control much easier for me. I would also recommend buying an additional transmitter just in case you misplace yours or would like your fishing buddy to control the boat while you are unhooking a fish. Another added bonus is controlling the boat of another fisherman if your co-pilots are on the same frequency and you are resonabley close! Just a little added fun if the fishing is slow.

Thanks for the help. Too bad it seems that I missed the "boat" on a promotion for a free transmitter. I will still look a little closer at the unit next time I am in a shop that stocks them.


Thanks again, and good fishing!

Great product, way easier to use than the foot pedal (you can still use the foot pedal if you ever lose remote or just want to). I didn't even lose my remote all year. The only problem, and it barely ever happened, is if you are in back and your buddy is in the line of sight for the remote, you'll need to tell him to get the ****out of the way so you can control the motor (it's always good to yell at your boat mates from time to time to let them know who's in control). It's a great feature that once you have you can't live without.

I really love mine too. Great product that works. I used mine on about fifty fishing trips and never had one single problem. Makes it easy to move around the boat when casting and fighting fish. I use the wrist strap and just have to bump it with my chin to stop the boat. The only drawback is now my buddy always sits in the bow or the boat so I have to fish in the back in my own boat.

      My grandmother is a very old person, and she has had a real estate company for 20 years now, she has dedicated her whole life to it, so she does not understand much about technology and is looking to modernize her business, she is one of the few real estate companies that They don't have their own application, so I see myself in charge of finding a good software developer for real estate and that type of business. Do you know any professional or company that is dedicated to it?

      Don't forget about IP Lures just west of town about 2 miles on the south side of Co. 82.    I was out on Osakis last week for a couple hours. Picked up two walleyes, one about 13" and the other a fat 14-1/2". Also a couple northerns and a handful of perch.

      Of course, you shouldn’t even ask about this, because this is the responsibility of the executor of the order, that is, the employee who will create such an application. I think it will be stated in the contract of employment if there is one and then you don't have to ask for anything.

      Shallow. Got skunked tonight. Just got chased off by the weather. Last evening was the only time the last 4 times out I caught fish. Last even was light drizzle and calm water. Water warmed up about 3-1/2 degrees since the first time out.

      It is very important not only to identify mushrooms by their appearance but also to understand whether it is useful or not, because now there are many poisonous mushrooms, and it is extremely important that no mistakes were made in the selection of such mushrooms. That's why I here https://www.mushrooms.online/mushroom-poisoning/ read a lot of interesting information about poisonous mushrooms and was able to understand more about it. I hope that I was able to help you and was really helpful to learn.

      e-commerce applications always do wonders for any business so your idea is very good, someone here in this forum should be able to recommend you some good company that can help you develop the application, remember to ask them to review the application before launching it to the market, so that it does not come out with errors, if it has errors you will lose many users, good luck with your business!

      With all that amount of guests you have, you need to create the application, yes or yes, it will facilitate communication between you and your clients, making it possible for you to answer each query, doubt and order that they ask of you, in addition to being able to charge them for your service with total comfort, try try to contact a company that is dedicated to developing this type of applications, although I cannot know exactly how much the creation cost will be, so try to have enough capital to spend
