Best new electric trolling motor
For years, anglers have had two choices when it comes to electric trolling motors: the deep-water benefits of wireless motors featuring Spot-Lock, iTracks and remote steering capabilities, or the shallow-water precision and responsiveness of foot-controlled, cable-driven units. The new MinnKota Ultrex combines the best of both worlds, merging the body of the legendary Fortrex foot-control motor with the brains of i-Pilot. Available in both 24-volt, 80-pound-thrust and 36-volt, 112-pound-thrust versions, the Ultrex is a game changer.
