I’m considering upgrading my trolling motor to a Minn Kota Riptide Powerdrive with an I-Pilot. I’d love to hear some reviews from anyone that has one, or any other options y’all are aware of.
I'm in the same boat70lbs of thrust
Go with the 80 thrust , add a Battery Tender plug. I-pilot is a game changer. Love the anchor feature.Forgot to mention that I have a 17 Maverick, currently have an older 55lb thrust Minn Kota. The model I mentioned has 70lbs of thrust, can’t imagine that would be too much power for my boat
I watched a commercial awhile back that the guy backed his boat into the water then used a remote to deploy his TM and had it station the boat out of the way while he parked his truck.
That's kinda rad (if that's a word)
the two points for me getting the Sea Nymph was one, needed something light enough that I could still handle it on/off the trailer, the other ...something for me to tinker with...
Going to get one this month as the strippers tend to move into the delta in September.
Front of the Nymph is good enough to cast from.
