Fish Head

Minn Kota plug and receptacle

Question

Fish Head

I'm replacing my 24V, 2005 PD80 with a new Terrova 80. There are 4 wires that come from my batteries to the back of the receptacle. Than there are 4 prongs that connect the plug and receptacle. I want to replace the plug and receptacle because they are worn, but I can't find any new receptacles that have 4 wires.

It's probably an easy fix for someone who knows what they're doing, but unfortunately that's not me. What do I do?

Highly recommend a Battery Tender receptacle and plug. It's the last plug you will ever need. It only takes 2 wires if you jumper at the batteries.

The minkota only needs two wires. Connect the batteries in series in the battery compartment and run a Positive (red) and negative (black) to the receptacle (you can use the red and black that are already run.) Ignore the other wires. Connect the red and black from the trolling motor to the pins on the plug corresponding to the pins on the receptacle. If there are only two pins that make it easier.

The terrova has no use for the 12 volts that is currently in your receptacle. That is a hangover from the days of 12/24 volt trolling motors.

      If ever a person wanted to accelerate their learning curve on Osakis, this would be a good time to do it! I’ll try to keep it open but I never know what’s going to happen with the kids wedding coming up - at our house - in September. Thanks for putting this on Borch. 😎

      I haven’t fished it but would use chubs like you mentioned if I did. Good luck ozzie.

      Does anyone know where I can rent and/or use a paddle board on Vermilion? Thanks!

      We fished the small lake a few week back the water was really high. No luck with bass around the pads tried Texas rigged worms and spinner baits, we did find crappies in 8-10" around Lilly pads and reeds crappies were caught on panfish leaches and small glow jigs.

      Hello from Sunset Lodge!

      In Minnesota, walleyes and pike have been found using crank-baits on the south side of Oak Island.  Walleye have also been caught pulling spinners in 26-30 feet using gold and green.
       
      In Ontario, walleye have been very active using pink and orange jigs on the breaks of reefs or casting shallow crank-baits in 8-12 feet by rocky shoreline points.  A good mixed bag of smallmouth and pike have been found with the walleye as well.
       
      Musky fishing has really picked up with lots of fish over 40+ inches.  Fishing sand and weedy bays near rock reefs have produced well using buck-tails, small crank-baits and top-water baits. 

      Until next week!

      A group of us are planning on getting together on Lake Osakis for the day on 8/18/18 for a day of fishing and a midday picnic at the Battle Point Park.  We would enjoy connecting with some fellow anglers from the site to connect and have some fun.  Osakis is a great lake for big gills, slab crappies, nice walleye, pike, smallmouth and largemouth bass.  The best walleye bite has been during low light periods.  Sunfish and crappie bite all day.  We plan on taking a break around noon at the Battle Point Park for lunch.  Right now tentatively looking to connect around 8-9 at the access.  Otherwise look for a red and white Warrior and connect with me, "Borch" on the water I'd you'd like.   I might even have a fishing report really fresh fishing report for you.
