Minn Kota

 Hi everyone 

looking for some feedback on the use of a Minn Kota or similar thinking of getting one to hold me on a spot rather than anchoring. I’ve read a fair bit on them anyone got one ?

 Yes they do work ,if you get the min Kota get the latest as the GPS wasn't reliable.motorguide is another.

motorguide didn't need upgrading as they were a lot better.going to cost you about $3000 with batteries if you go with 24v.

 If you are just looking for the spotlock (anchor) feature then you really only have the Minn Kota as a choice.


If you just want an electric then go a Watersnake. Heaps better price for the same quality.

I have had 3 Kota's and all 3 died between 2-3 years.

Watersnake still going after 5 years.

Watersnakes don't have the spotlock feature though so you need to hold yourself there (steering/thrust).


If you go the Kota then ensure it's well secured during any travel. This is what kills them (vibration/movment).
