Fish longer, fish at exactly the speed you want, and fish more silently. And do it with the extreme durability of Digital.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Quentink Excellent motor
Works great for my 20' pontoon....holds charge very good, very quiet, and moves my pontoon with ease, even with 6 people on board. The pontoon mount was easy to install. Highly recommend this motor.

I have had no problems what so ever with this trolling motor. This is the third weekend of use and have never ran out of juice in my battery. I am pushing a 24 ft. pontoon around and this motor has plenty of power to do it. The only negative was upon receipt from Bass Pro Shop the instructions said to install a 50 amp breaker inline to trolling motor and if running from a battery other than on the front deck of boat to use 6 gauge wire. None of this was included with motor and I never once was prompted to buy these items to be able to use trolling motor out of box. I ended up at my local boat dealer and for $9 bucks got me set. Could be very flustrating if you lived somewhere out and no boat dealer was close. Contacted both BPS and Motorguide that there should be a note to buyers to purchase a breaker and wire set if they currently don't have these on their boat. Other than that I am fully satisfied with my purchase!

Rated 2 out of 5 by nothavnfun would not work
I have a 21ft pontoon fishn boat there is no way to mount a trolling motor on the front of the boat. I trailer my boat at all times and the way the boat goes on the trailer you would have to take the motor off the boat all the time and that isnt going to happen with me. someone needs to design a better way to use it as a fishn boat not a pain in the you no what to use a trolling motor. If you have any better ideas Ill listen.
