How deep should my trolling motor be in the water?
A trolling motor’s ideal propeller should be at a depth that keeps about 6 inches of water above the blades. In other words, the centerline of the motor and the prop shaft should be about 12-18 inches below the waterline, depending on the make, model and dimensions of the trolling motor.
How do I choose the right size trolling motor?
General rule of thumb: you need at least 2 lbs. of thrust for every 100 lbs. of fully-loaded boat weight (people and gear included). If things like wind or current are major factors where you fish, you’ll want a little extra thrust.
Will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?
In fact two 55 pound thrust motors will not move you any faster than one 30 pound thrust motor. Higher thrust 12V trolling motors are designed for bigger heavier boats with larger payloads. The maximum speed of a trolling motor is 5 mph regardless of how many pounds of thrust.
How long will a trolling motor battery last?
However, a 24-volt trolling motor should last at least 8-10 hours and may last up to several days before you need new or recharged batteries.
What battery do I need for a Minn Kota trolling motor?

Are Minn Kota motors made in China?
While Minn Kota motors are designed, manufactured, and serviced in America, some of their products have been shifted to be created in China. This is mainly due to faster manufacturing or wider availability of materials, but you won’t have to worry about receiving low-quality products.
Is Minn Kota a good brand?
Quality Comparison. In our experience, both MotorGuide and Minn Kota make quality products that you can count on. Both have a long tradition of making well-known trolling motors, and both lines are still manufactured in the United States. But overall, we think both motors are well built and reliable.
How fast will a 55 lb thrust trolling motor go?
Assuming perfect riding conditions, the use of the best fuel i.e. the distillate marine diesel, and moderate load, 55-pound trolling motors are likely to attain a maximum speed of only 5 miles per hour.
Does the ultrex self deploy?
That said, the Ultrex does not have auto-deploy. Though it cannot stow and deploy itself, its Lift Assist function comes close to doing so. Lift-Assist is a design feature that makes stowing and deploying your trolling motor much easier. The Ultrex is one of several Minn Kota trolling motors to feature Lift-Assist.
Do you need a fish finder for I-pilot?
No. Our i-Pilot GPS trolling motor system operates independently of the fish finder. This self contained system provides features such as Spot-Lock, Record a Track, AutoPilot and more.
Is Minn Kota Terrova worth it?
