Equipping the right trolling motor on your boat is one of the most important decisions an angler will make. For Greg DiPalma, one particular reason made his decision to go with the Minn Kota Ultrex was an easy one.
“If you haven't already heard, the reason why this trolling motor is such a big hit in the fishing world is because of Spot-Lock,” said DiPalma. “Spot-Lock allows you to be more efficient on the water, it saves you a ton of time, and it just makes the fishing process so much better.”
Spot-Lock, however, is just one of the many features that Minn Kota has included in this trolling motor geared toward serious anglers. Minn Kota’s Lift-Assist makes for easy stow and deploy, regardless of your age or any physical limitations.
With the Ultrex’s built-in transducer, you can easily utilize Hummingbird’s Mega Down Imaging and Mega Side Imaging while targeting fish. Meanwhile, thanks to the i-Pilot system, you can manage your trolling motor from anywhere on the boat via remote control.
In this on-the-water demonstration, DiPalma breaks down all of these features and more, including the importance of reducing your speed and sound when fishing shallow water.
