Well I have been using my 30lb Minn Kota Endura Trolling for over two months now on my Pelican Bass Raider 10 boat and have no complaints. I have taken it through windy situations, rough water and have even hit a few tree stumps over at Lakeville Lake in Oakland County Michigan. It’s held up really good! I couldn’t pass the Endura model up for only $100 at Gander Mountain, I mean for that price it was a steal. I was going to buy the Traxxis Digital Maximizer(delivers up to five times longer run time on a single battery charge), but the Gander Mountain employee informed me I really don’t need that for the small boat I’m using. He said the 30lb Endura will push my boat just fine! The only thing I wish it came with was the weedless wedge prop, but I can go out and buy one of those no problem and hook it on. The regular prop sometimes gets slowed down by the weeds, but that’s only once and awhile. Over the last 15 fishing trips it’s happened like twice. You just unhook the cables on the battery, tilt the prop up and pick the weeds off no problem, takes like 30 seconds. I picked the transom mount for my 10 foot Bass Raider, if you have a decent size bass boat, I suggest going with the bow mount trolling motor and at least pick a 50lb for those windy occasions out on the lake. If you’re in the market for one, check out our listing of trolling motors for sale. Minn Kota is a great brand to buy from, I really wouldn’t trust anyone else.
