When I bought my boat used it came with group 27dc batteries for my trolling motor which is an 24vlt minnkota 80thrust power, can I get a bigger size group battery for it or do I have to stay with the same size? Any help would be appreciated.

For trolling there is no upper limit. Go as big as you want, with the reserve capacity (RC) you desire.

Yes you can choose any size battery as long as it will physically fit in your boat.

bigger is better for sure! if you have room for them in your boat, some boats have limited room for batteries.

You can get whatever size you want, as long as it fits in the trays (if your boat has them, I imagine it does).

As another person said, it's RC (reserve capacity) that you want for trolling motor batteries, not cranking amps. Reserve capacity and amp hours are related. If one battery measures in RC and another in amp hours, you can compare the two capacities by multiplying RC by 0.42 to get to amp hours.

Reserve capacity is "the number of minutes a fully charged battery at 80 degrees F is discharged at 25 amps before the voltage falls below 10.5 volts."
