Batterys?

4 posts in this topic

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.

    • Hey @rl_sd who had the meat on sale? Looks great btw
    • chicks maybe exploring what the beak is for
    •   You can also be a little creative with the leftover meat.  For example: The wife and I will whip up a spanish rice mixed in with the pork and make Enchiladas or heat the pork on the stove top, mix in some BBQ sauce and make quesadillas (the grandkids love them).   There's more to pulled pork than sandwiches.  
    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change!
