Default MinnKota iPilot Link...1st Impressions

I got to spend my first day with a MinnKota Terrova and iPilot linked to my Humminbird with LakeMaster Maps and all I can say is WOW! This is the real deal...it's going to change the way I fish...amazing when the Master Minds from MinnKota, Humminbird and LakeMaster come together!



Screen Capture from Humminbird Spot Locked on this point catching White Bass...I sat here for over 20 mintues running all around the boat in the exact same spot...This is going to be a Structure Fisherman's Dream Come True!



I've got some video footage that I will be editing and adding this week. Really really excited about what this product can do for me! To be honest I liked the features but had lots of doubts with all the trees I normally fish...myth busted! It's going to be a great new tool for me!

Here's the First Video as I test the NEW MinnKota iPilot Link....I can tell you my days with a Cable Steer Trolling Motor are getting numbered! I was really, really shocked at the ease to operate and the Benefits of the iPilot Link System are enough that I may never put a Cable Steer Motor back on the boat....20+ Years of Cable Steer and 1 Day of Electric Steer has me ready to get back on the water for even more testing!

In my latest Test I take the MinnKota Terrova with iPilot Link into the flooded hardwaoods on Truman Lake to see how well it performs navigating thru the flooded timber. Plus test some of the durability of this motor. Check out the latest Video with more to come real soon

This is what happens when two competitive Bass Anglers hit the water to take out a little Revenge on the "Man in Striped Suits" for all year chasing the Green Fish! MinnKota iPilot Link Spot Lock makes it sooooooo easy and adds to even more fun.

The Latest Video I take Electric Steer Terrova with the GPS Assisted Guidance of the iPilot Link to the docks to learn the positivies and negatives of this system when dock fishing. This was on my second day with this system after 25+ Years of using Cable Steer Motors...I'm learning alot about just what all the MinnKota Terrova can do for you.
