Minn Kota Terrova Bow Mount Trolling Motors
Really nice motor
ive been using mine for about a year and a half now on my 18ft Xpress. I duck hunt as well as fish out of this boat and I've found that the terrova with ipilot is awesome not only for fishing but for duck hunting. It's crazy how far trolling motors have come in just the past 10 years. Ok so for fishing all the features that ipilot has is a huge tool for catching and staying on fish. I don't know how I lived without ipilot all my life. For duck hunting though it makes things so much easier, more convenient and safe. I use the spot lock feature a ton while I throw out decoys as well as picking decoys up. A couple places I duck hunt are so stumpy, rocky and shallow I won't even run my 90hp merc outboard. Instead I will sit on the front of the bow and carefully weave through the mine field of stumps to my hunting area. This terrova w/ipilot has seriously made things much easier for duck hunting and the benefits it has for fishing are obvious. The only con I have is price. It's an expensive unit especially with ipilot and hopefully we will see prices drop in the coming years. One of my hunting buddies just bought a terrova w/ipilot after seeing mine in action on duck hunts and fishing trips.

I would not normally contribute my opinion but this motor with AP and Remote Control is awsome. I used it for 6 hrs straight with the smaller footprint batterries (75 Amp Hour) and it still has pleanty of battery life to go again. I enjoyed the AP function which allows you to concentrate on fishing rather than driving. The remote control is by far the best option yet. I do have a couple of negatives to add. The total decked out price is too high. Unfortunately reviews like this will not help. The US2 sonar option will require more research than Minn Kota will admit. The adapter cable doesn't seem to work with all models of Fish Finders they indicate on the adapter cable package - beware or you will be out even more money for a new FF.

Bast trolling motor ever purchased
this motor works great, the only thing i would change is i would add a handle to the head of the motor so u can grab it when ur deploying it. it sometimes slams down to fast. Overall the motor performes great when i need it. and there is lots of bells and whistles.

An incredible fish catching tool
with the foot pedel being able to be controlled like the powerdrive and the rocker pedel, it really makes this motor nice and a good all around motor. When fishing a calm area you can slow down with the rocker pedal it is a life savor on the rivers with the current. this motor can be as fast or as slow as you want it to be. Plus the battery gage on it makes this motor really nice. Also the foot pedal disconnects for easy storage. A fine piece of machinery.
