Recommended Posts

A company close out sale for minnkota motors

I just bought a Minnkota 55 lb thrust 54 inch shaft 12 volt V2 powerdrive with auto pilot and universial sonar,Quick release plate for 488.00 delivered to my house.

Its last years model new in box with 3 year warranty.

Unfortunatly I think I'm being scammed! The shop in in Brooklin Park its on Craigs List.So far the motor I've wanted hes called back 5 times now and the First call was no uni sonar the second call was no auto pilot the third call was 400 dollars for a Minnkota 55. It started at 400 dollars off new price then each call back to me something was omitted from accessories but the price stayed the same!

He could of just posted A Minnkota 55 at 400.00 and saved my time!

He kept telling me he was out of the shop Plowing and had to go back and check! When I asked what motors he did have,He said this one for 400 or a 70 lb thrust 24 V for over 800.

Well anyway my GREAT deal is no more.

Bummer. I was going to say that was a smoking deal! Obviously boat dealers are not going to be the most competitive on trolling motors, but I paid over 700 for mine.

I would hold out for the auto pilot at least. Makes a world of difference. I have the U.S., but have not hooked anything up to it yet.

    • Fishing a mid lake Hump that came up to 45ft. Caught most of the fish between 50-61. We did catch some on the top of the hump in the evening. 
    • How deep were the trout running?  We heard ultra deep on Crow to 30 ft.  The 30 ft number came from people actually catching them.   Thanks for the pics!  I like the fly rod smallie.
    • try the raid spray on grass at bottom. 
    • Here are some pictures from this years trip!
    • How do you keep ants off your feeders, especially hummingbird and oriole feeders? I've tried Toro and Raid sprays on the post but it seeks the birds don't like that smell either and i don't see many for a while. Has anyone else experienced that? Any good ideas?
    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
