Either way you're screwed...

Thought I would try to save some money and go with at Watersnake Trolling Motor from Amazon..
for $350 I figured it was probably as good as the others...

Well I do have to say I really did like the trolling motor over my 80lb Minn Kota All Terrain from 2003......the electronics worked great, smooth turning, the speed control worked very well and I was able to adjust speeds with my foot...It was 50lb thrust and got the job done... I was very happy with it..for the first 2 times out on the water with it...


Until my first full run in with a stump, I have a 16 foot Stratos and moving along about half speed, when I bump into a stump... Here is the aftermath



So if you lake doesn't have stumps I would say that this would be a great trolling motor for you for the price...but if you ever decide to visit a lake with stumps...this might not be the best investment..

Here is the other watersnake we caught on Lake Fork on Saturday June 3rd. How appropriate for the occasion..

So, the MinnKota lasted 14 years at around $1000, and the China made water snake lasted 3 trips at $300.....hmm. Sounds like the MinnKota was a pretty solid investment. Bet ya won't make that mistake again! hammer

Thanks for the review and the heads up for all the other here that might be looking for a new TM.
