    I need to get a transom mount trolling motor for my boat (12ft aluminum). Should 30 thrust be enough? What brand do you guys recommend? Thanks.

    30 will work,but slow.i'd go with 40-50 lb. minnkota.
     

  3. I have a 40lb Thrust Minn Kota for my 8' BassHunter! I agree and think a 40-50lb would be just about right for a 12' aluminum.

  5. I just put twin 50's (one front and one in back) on my 14' smoker big fisherman . I had it out once and could almost ski off the back!!! :D

    I looked at some at Gander. Think I'm gonna get the 40 lb. Minn Kota Endura. It was $150. Also, is there an advantage to buying a battery that is specific for trolling motors, or is a $25 battery from Wal-Mart okay?
     
  8. Buy the deep cycle from wallyworld. Made for discharging and charging numerous times-get the 29 or 31 series.
