HOLD YOUR GROUND. Built with the legendary performance and durability of a Minn Kota, Talon delivers a fast, secure hold to keep you on top of fish in shallow water. It's the ultimate weapon in the battle for boat positioning. Made of marine-grade extruded anodized-aluminum, Talon can withstand a harsh, corrosive saltwater environment as well as the pounding waves of a freshwater river or lake. Operating from the boat's existing battery setup, Talon vertically deploys the spike without fish-spooking noise. Additionally, the indestructible spike, made with fiberglass reinforced composite material, is guaranteed for life.

Speed
With lightning-fast deployment at the push of a button, Talon makes every second count.
Fast Deploy -- Talon's spike moves quietly through the water, faster than the competition.
Automatic Deploy -- Auto Up/Down lets you deploy Talon by tapping a button on your wireless remote, so you don't have to hold it down and wait.
Two-Stage Deployment -- Talon utilizes a sequential deployment that quickly and quietly moves the spike vertically, so it causes minimal disruption at the bottom and doesn't interfere with your lines.

Power
No matter the conditions, you can stand your ground with the heavy-hitting, relentless power of Talon.
2X Anchoring Force -- Built with nearly double the force of the competition, so you can power  in for the most secure hold on the water.
Auto-Drive -- The Auto-Drive feature powers the spike into the bottom with three successive hits, using increased force on each hit.
Rough Water Mode --  In heavy chop, activate Rough Water Mode, which performs three Auto-Drive sequences at 10 second intervals for an even stronger hold.
Built-in Wave Absorption -- Talon enables your boat to move up or down without affecting the anchor. It works like built-in floating suspension to keep you locked  to the bottom, even in rough water conditions

Stealth
Anchor down without spooking fish, thanks to Talon's quiet design.
Simple Design -- Built with minimal moving parts and no hinge points, Talon starts quiet  and stays quiet.
Noise Dissipation -- The innovative design prevents noise from being emitted below the water or through the hull, where the fish can hear it.

Easy Installation
Talon is as easy to install and adjust as a trolling motor.
Built Smart -- Talon's space-saving, lightweight design is easy to install, and doesn't require messy, complicated hydraulic pumps and hoses.
Versatile Adjustments -- A Minn Kota Quick-Release bracket enables Talon to slide up and down or pivot up to 30 degrees; to easily accommodate any transom angle. You can also easily remove it when not in use.

LED Depth Indicator
Track anchor depth at a glance, with LED lights on the unit that quickly show you how far down you're deployed in one foot increments.

Rough Water Mode
When the winds pick up, activate Rough Water Mode, which performs the Auto-Drive sequences at 10 second intervals for an even stronger hold.

Rugged Construction
Each Talon model is built with saltwater-tested corrosion resistance, thanks to a marine-grade, extruded aluminum body.

Deployment Notification Alarm
If you turn your engine on while the spike is deployed, a Deployment Notification Alarm alerts you that the anchor is down to avoid damage.

Standard Wireless Remotes
Two wireless remotes come standard to give you push-button control of Talon from anywhere on the boat.

Rated 3.9 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Great Product I have had my Talons for several years now and they are one of the very best accessories I have ever bought. Easy to use and solid reliable performance. These shallow water anchors have become almost as important to my fishing as my locators. I've read all the reviews here and it seems the biggest complaint is they get stuck in the mud. That happened to me a couple of times but by rocking the boat with the big motor the vacuum around the spike was broken and they came right up. After that, when in the mud, I quit sending them down till they stop. Seems like two feet into the mud holds as well as 6 feet. I couldn't get the Talons to come up one day last week but that was due to a week cranking battery. I changed batteries with my battery switch and the came right up. As for the remote control switches (Fobs), I have never changed a battery yet but will this winter just to make sure a battery doesn't leak and ruin one of my fobs. With the power cord QD's removing the Talon from the boat is a snap and I do so every time I take a long out of state trip with my boat cover on. I have never tried it but I don't think getting a power pole off of your rig could be as easy. If the Talon's height is a problem for you, install the tilt brackets. They allow you get under any bridge or culvert your boat motor will clear. Additionally, when I tow without my boat cover I use the tilt brackets. I'm sure Power Poles are great units too but they have different space and mechanical requirements and for that reason I chose the Talons. The only complaint I have is with Talon's deployment alarm. This alarm sounds if the ignition is turned on and the anchors are deployed. The alarm is so highly pitched I can never hear it. Granted my hearing isn't great but high frequency sounds are the first to go so why use a high frequency tone? I will be installing new 12' Talons this winter and already have a buyer for my original 8' Talons. August 20, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Johnson outdoors is the best I purchased my first unit used, I sent it to them they repaired it, did some upgrades for 130.00 shipping and all. Installed the unit and fished 5 tounaments from scotsbrough, al to ks, tx and never looked back. the unit did get stuck in the mud a couple of times but it was rough weather. I was going across kentucky lake from paris landing to new johnsonville (about 50 mins) taking on a 25-30mph s. wind 3-5 footers the entire way got to where I was going to fish and went to tallon down and the talon was not there, the bracket had broken. I called minn kota (johnson outdoors) and was just going to let them know what happened..and to be on the look out for this problem, that was it I did not expect a replacement nor did I ask for one....The one I had was used to begin with.... 4 days later the UPS man shows up with a brand new talon and a pre paid shipping label. to ship the bracket back to them. I called them and asked what was up and this is what they said "We are very sorry that your unit failed and we are commited to our customers and quality products, please enjoy your new talon". I was so pleased with Johnson outdoors I purchased another talon for the otherside of the boat. In short I do not think you could ever go wrong with johnson outdoors, they have always be very helpfull, friendly. August 7, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Handy To Have It's great to have and use when you are shallow enough to use it and are fishing a spot meticulously. It's also great when you have to retie your bait and don't want to drift too far from your fishing area or have to do double duty on the trolling motor when you retie. It even works good to put the boat on shore and anchor to keep it in place. July 15, 2013
Rated 2 out of 5 by Have had it just over a year It was replaced after a few months after it stuck in the down position by BPS. Several months later in the shop for repairs, stuck down again. Once repaired after a few months it is now back in the shop stuck down again. I love the fact it doesn't have all the hydralics the Power Pole has, just wish it didn't break down so often.

A: 
If you have a jack plate it would be good to get the universal mounting bracket. Bass Pro Shops carries it. It is anywhere from $229-$269. The Universal jack plate bracket is easy to install and can be made to do about anything you want to do with it. It can be used on either port or starboard sides. If you don't have a jack plate you would need a sandwich bracket that goes between the motor and transom. It would be a much harder install with resealing bolts etc.

A: 
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.

A: 
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.

A: 
Doubt it will hold, way too many rocks on the bottom and it will not penetrate enough to hold you in the current, it will just drag down the river

From my experience with the talon, it did not stop my boat. The spike just drags on the bottom and you cannot drive it in any further.
