Minn Kota® Talon™ Shallow Water Anchors
Best Purchase Ever for My Boat !!
I installed them on my boat my self, It was easier than installing a fish finder. No pumps, no hassel, 4 bolts and 2 wires each unit. On the water they work perfect. Set sideways in the current so every one can fish down river. Spot red fish in shallow water get ahead of them coast in hit the remote the boat stops and u have already made the cast and hooked up, while others are trying to get trolling motor in the water. The alarm is so soft there is no need to hook that wire up. I can not hear it at all !! The remotes are wonderful. I placed one each side of sterring wheel and a 4 way remote on my wrist .

I really like this unit and all it's features. The only drawback is the mounting bracket. I built my own but it's a pain in the neck.

First it truly is easy to install. I installed it only to find that my boat's deck overhang didn't allow for perpendicular installation. I contacted Minn Kota and was told this was important due to the need to be able to pivot around the pole without breaking it. Ordered the 6" riser extension and reinstalled it. This did the trick and it works great.
I do have a criticism. I bothered to run the green wire to a switched leg to allow for the alarm function. The alarm is so weak (Minn Kota admitted this was a fact) - you have to concentrate to hear it which defeats the point of an alarm. Not worth the effort to install this wire for the alarm unless you have the hearing of a mouse.

So far, so good. Just what I needed. Very convenient with it's simplicity of design. The competition was to big to install, and I have a 23 foot boat. It opens up a whole new ease in boating with less worrying.

The Talon will stick up about 2 foot above your out board motor. The overall hight will depend on how high your trailer runners have the boat bottom off the floor. On 8'4" models installed 4" up from bottom of hull they should be 5'4" from bottom of hull.
First, you can buy a mounting plate that allows it to be tilted 30 degrees for going into and out of the garage. If that's not enough you can raise and lower it quite a bit with no tools. If that's not enough you can take it completely off easily with no tools.
The Talon has great holding power. I use mine on the Calcasieu and Sabine Rivers in southwest Louisiana. These rivers are affected by tides. When I put my Talon down it holds me firmly in place in heavy current.
