Minn Kota Fortrex SonarReady Bow Mount - $1299.99 to $1479.99
The Minn Kota Fortrex Bow Mount Trolling Motor was designed to be the toughest, most trouble-free trolling motor ever made.
Fortrex's innovative Mono-Arm Design features an extruded, anodized aluminum structural beam that operates with no metal-to-metal contact and 75% less torsion. A single hinge point and rear pivot bearing with 20% more surface area deliver less wear, longer life, and quieter operation than traditional motor mounts.
Counter-Tension Stabilizer (CTS) uses an integrated spring that applies force whether the motor's stowed or deployed. On the water, that translates to a motor with no play, no give, reduced steering torque, and silent operation.
Fortrex's patented Lift-Assist design cuts the weight of stow and deploy in half, making it as easy as lifting your SUV tailgate. It features a stainless steel, nitrogen-charged gas spring to get you in and out of the water with ease.
Lifting the motor and bowguard off of the mount is now even easier on Fortrex. Just remove a single cap screw. The patented Removable Bowguard 360 also features a dual bearing system that eliminates noise and allows for improved breakaways from any angle.
A newly designed foot petal is ultra-responsive, with more room for your foot and more exact speed control.
The Digital Maximizer controls and optimizes power to extend battery life and reduce damaging heat. You'll stay on the water up to five times longer on a single charge. The new indestructible composite shaft is, pound-for-pound, stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink or corrode. It is the only trolling motor shaft that's guaranteed for life.
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. The extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And the unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.

Comments: I had the 101 and bought the 36 volt Fortrex 112 and used it for two consecutive tournaments on Lake Okeechobee in shallow thick Hydrilla. I could not believe the difference in power. I highly recommend buying the 112 especially if you fish rough water and thick vegetation.

Comments: Got this before a tournament. Went to the two day tournament and drove 25 miles to fish an hour in my main engine went down and hand to troll all the way back. Not once did it stop working or slow down and never drained the batteries and five hours non stop on high. If your serious about fishing this is worth the money
