Batterys?

Recommended Posts

I have to find a new battery for my trolling motor. I have a minn koda endra 44lb 12v. I want to know...how big of a battery i should get? and i want to know where can I find a good cheap battery. I really don't need anything really but I am pushing a 14' boat. and I only go out for about 3-4 hours at a time and fish. after that I go home and put my battery on the charger.

Look for the highest reserve cranking and cold cranking amps. I like Delco 1150 batteries, they are 850 cca. the one reason that i say this is that they are a true deep cycle battery, not marine grade but will take the on and off of the charger the best. The boat guys probably have a different "marine" battery they use but if it is in a box, and you have it set up for a charger, i would go for it. I would not go "cheap" as you get just that, mostly a remanufactured battery that may last year or might last 19 minutes. Good luck.

the Wal-mart ones are made by exide, just labeled differently, and are about $30 cheaper than the exide labeled batteries. I have bought them in the past and have had no trouble with them, they have lasted several years. I figure I can get 3 of them for the price of some of the others out there.

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
