MinnKota AP 65

3 posts in this topic

All right I have the blessing and a new boat is in the process. I will be purchasing a Fish Hawk 1750 with a 115 Optimax on. The trolling motor will be the MinnKota AP 65. What info can you share about this trolling motor?

Thank you for the input

I have had mine for 2 years. I have and extra bracket and throw it on the pontoon boat. It is sweet. Really treat yourself and get the co-pilot. The co-pilot makes the motor. Speed control is much better with the co-pilot.

I've got the 24 volt AP with built in transducer. The autopilot is a nice feature in concept but I don't like the new system they went to. I'm on my 5th compass board in just over a year. No kidding. What a pain.

It has actually worked only 2 days of fishing now in the entire 14 months I have owned it. Wentworth is doing the fixing under warranty and says that minnkota is trying to fix the problem but I think they need to just start over again with a whole new design.

Usually I love Minnkota products. My vantage is great.

    • 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!
