Default Minn Kota Ulterra

Anyone have one? I have built up about a dozen spots on PLO that are now My Milk Run so to speak. Spots where I can find and catch walleye's most every day. That way you can blaze from one spot to the next with a client till you hit pay dirt! Only problem is lowering and lifting the motor dozens of times a day!

When I first saw the Ulterra advertised all I could think was there is something that will break and become a constant drain. I was pulling up my Terrova the other day and got hit by a wave and slipped. Got me to thinking about the Ulterra again?

I love my Pro V but the original owner did two things I need to change. He lived in SD and bought it new in 2012. He was a back troller, so he used the kicker alot. At 19.5 feet it is a wind magnet! He also chose a two bank battery charger, instead of the three it is designed for. My Terrova is only 80 lbs thrust and eats up battery charge fairly quickly when I am constantly catching alot of wind. So if I get the Ulterra and increase thrust i will need to add another trolling battery and a three bank charger also.

I will sell the Terrova when I can afford to do all this.

I still use the kicker alot to troll. I just sit in front of the Sonars and use my Terrova as my rudder to steer.

I was gonna get one last year but I always have someone in the front to deploy and stow the Terrova! Why pay $500 extra for something I get for free?

Yup, and you have people drill your ice holes and carry your auger. Why buy the cow when you can get the milk for free LOL.
