Minn Kota Repair

6 posts in this topic

While trolling last night my electric trolling motor started smoking. Looks like it had a bad connection in the top of the motor. I got hot enough to melt the plastic cover on the head. It is still under warranty so I need to take it to certified service center. Anybody have any experiences with the service shops in Red Wing or Bloomington. I can't remember the shop names and the Minn Kota web page is down at this time so I can't look them up again.

Motor Clinic in Bloomington and Fish Lectronics in Minneapolis are two places that are tough to beat for Minnkota problems.

Good luck!

Thanks Marine Man, I think I will run up to Fish Lectronics today. They are open an hour later than the Motor Clinic so I will be able to make it after work.

I went to Fish Lectronics and ended up trading in my motor for a refurbished Minn Kota that was the newer model than and it also had Auto Pilot. After getting my first Minn Kota I kicked myself more than once for not getting the Auto Pilot feature. I havent had a chance to try it out yet but it is ready to go, maybe this weekend. Really nice guys at Fish Lectronics and they gave me a good deal on the trade-in.

    • Hotspot outdoors of course!
    • Money to be made, and the cold war (you remember the cold war, right?) was the reason we did various things.    Go read about Stalin and his successors to see why we were worried about the Soviet Union.   What we did might or might not have turned out like we hoped but that doesn't change what the situation was.   
    • Dave, your economist wants immigrants to meet requirements like posting a bond or having assets.  Why should they do that when they can just come in with nothing through the porous borders?   Isn't the argument about open borders vrs controlled immigration?   Would the 11 million undocumented have to go back home and post a bond?     If the US through its political process decides to allow immigrants, that's cool.    But that is not what we have now.   Better pick that mike back up.  
    • I'm still trying to figure out why we pushed the coup in Ukraine, other than to cause trouble of course.
    •   Ditto, almost exactly the same. I wouldn't spend a ton of money on decoys if your just starting.
    •   To tell you the truth. I have never cleaned a cottontail ever that didn't have flees all over them in the winter. So I just stop hunting them and went for Snowshoes which are bigger and never found flees on them, oddly?
    •   Seems the hares are down from when I was younger but the cottontails seem plentiful enough. I popped these with a 20 gauge shotgun while grousing
    • I use to go for Snowshoes a lot in the winter with a scoped 22. It was fun sneaking through the pines looking for them. See the little black eye and "bing".  Seems like they just fell off the face of the earth for many years so I just gave up trying for them. I'm sure with the big "Down with Fur" thing and not many taking out as many Fox and Yotes by trapping it really took a hit on the bunnies!  I wrote the DNR back a few years ago and asked them about it and he said: we really don't manage the Rabbits at all. And he gave me the old "Grouse BS". Their just at the bottom of their 10 year cycle!   Seems to always be their answer!
