Best Battery For 30lb Trolling Motor

Category: trolling motor 👁 234 👍 10 ★★★★☆4.1

A Minn Kota trolling motor will operate with any lead acid, deep cycle marine 12-volt battery/batteries. For best results, use a deep cycle, marine battery with at least a 110-ampere hour rating.

And, what is the best battery for trolling motors?

Battery Type There are two specific types of deep-cycle 12-volt batteries recommended for use with trolling motors: Lead Acid Wet-Cell & AGM Batteries. Deep-cycle batteries are designed for discharging smaller amounts of current over a longer period of time and for more frequent recharging.

Just as much, how many amps does a 30lb trolling motor pull? While the Minn Kota Endura C2 30 Freshwater Transom Mounted Trolling Motor (30" Shaft) model takes 32 amps/hr to get that 30 lbs of thrust, this one can do 30 lbs of thrust for roughly 18 amps/hr. 40 to 45 lbs thrust is roughly 29 amps/hr instead of the 42 amps/hr that those respective motors draw for the same thrust.

In any event, what size battery do I need for a 40 lb thrust trolling motor?

Most trolling motor batteries fail due to lack of proper charging. We suggest selecting a 12 volt deep cycle marine battery with at least a 110 amp hour rating, usually a group 27 size battery.

Can you use a starting battery for trolling motor?

A starting battery should not be used for trolling motors or powering appliances. Marine Deep Cycle Batteries are designed to discharge slowly over a long period of time and to withstand several hundred charging and discharging cycles.

Bullnose Rudder Clamp On Rudder for 24-55 Thrust Trolling Motors: Pontoons, Kayaks, or Canoes

Bullnose Rudder Clamp On Rudder for 24-55 Thrust Trolling Motors: Pontoons, Kayaks, or Canoes
  • PERFECT SOLUTION - Trolling motors are known for lack of steering especially when the wind picks up, the water is choppy or you want to track in a straight line. Simply add a Bullnose Rudder to the shaft of your trolling motor and notice significant improvement in steering when it comes to maneuvering your watercraft.
  • ESSENTIAL - A "must" for taking control of your trolling motors steering ability and getting to your destination smoothly. By adding a Bullnose Rudder you will notice an instant response in turning, be able to track in a straight line and it enables you to drive the craft even while fishing. It also gives you better control of your watercraft in most windy weather conditions.
  • FIT - The Bullnose Rudder is a clamp-on Rudder that fits most 24 to 55 lb thrust transom electric trolling motors and a select few cable pull bow mounts. It is most commonly used for "but not limited to" small boats, pontoons, kayaks, canoes, jon boats, etc. It measures, 11" high x 5" wide and fits a 1 1/8" shaft diameter.
  • QUALITY - It is a newly manufactured product on the market to ensure you have a stress-free fishing experience. It is manufactured from impact plastic for durability and comes with stainless steel screws. It is very strong so you don't have to worry about it coming loose, allowing you to focus more on fishing.
  • BOW MOUNT - Fits any shaft that measures 1 1/8" in diameter no matter the thrust including the Minn Kota, EDGE, MAXXUM, and FORTREX. The bow mount motor must be a hand cable pull, NOT self deploy. Self deploy will not work because the system requires the shaft to slide up and down right where the rudder needs to be attached. However a hand cable pull will allow you to carefully bring the motor up out of the water and set it on the motor mount without any obstructions getting in the way.

5 More Questions Answered

How long can you run a trolling motor on a battery?

The larger the rating, the more power the battery can hold, and the longer it will be able to power a motor at a given speed. For example, a 100 amperage hour battery is one that would be able to supply 25 amps of power for 4 hours (25 amps * 4 hours = 100 amp hours) before running out of energy.

How fast is a 55 lb thrust trolling motor?
