    I have a new trolling motor (Minn-Kota) 30lbs. thrust. What is the best kind of battery and do I need anything else besides the battery to ensure long motor and battery life? Also, go Michigan State Spartans!!!!!!!!

        No you dont really need anything else. A good smart charger always helps with battery life, as it does not overcharge the batter. You could also get a batter meter that stays on the battery when you are using the trolling motor.

          Congrats to the Big Ten Champs.

          All you need is a good deep cycle battery and a charger and your set.

                I agree, just a good deep cycle battery. Put it in your basement during the winter.

                  Better than a deep cycle battery is two. Set em up with a switch between the two.

                    You can't go wrong with an Optima Blue Top. It has a low discharge rate, low internal resistance, and it'll pretty much power anything that's practical.

                      Hi all. Could you please help me out with choosing the battery for the same motor? hi_tail suggested Optima Blue Top, but I'm not sure which one is the right one. Maybe someone could post a link?... Thanks!
