Video Transcript Hi there, Minn Kota Pro.
Talking about the new Minn Kota Talon.
I absolutely love these things.
These things are just a great addition to your bass boat. There is so many benefits to have a talon on a boat.
One of them is rigging.
Rigging them with a Minn Kota Talon is so easy, all it is, you have a wire that goes in into your main battery positive and negative, the brackets bolt right to your jack played on the side here and it is all remote control.
There is no wiring to switches in the boat, you can have up to at least 5 different remotes.
I usually put one on the console and one up at the bow panel and then I have one on me at all times. I use two of them, this helps the from the boat swinging back and forth. The Minn Kota Talon will go 8 1/2 ft deep.
I get a lot of people who ask me when I show up to deep clear water reservoir, “oh how are you gonna use those?”
There is a lot of benefits to use them even on a deep clear reservoir not just on like a natural lake in Florida. This whole year I have not gotten an actual rope out of my boat to tie up to the dock. Every time I just push the button the talon goes down, I never ever have to tie up to the dock. So there is a lot of really, really good benefits. Every time that I to re-tie and don’t want to get blown down the bank, hit the talon’s down and then your locked in place. It really, really saves you a lot of time and effort.
The other great thing, everything is contained right up here in the head. It is all electric and there are no hydraulic hoses. And the other thing, if you have multiple boats, so if you have an aluminum boat that you have for like fishing backwaters, and stuff like that, and then you have your big fiberglass bass boat, this is a very, very easy system to take on and off. All you will need is one other bracket for your other boat. You have a quick disconnect that’s almost like your graph , a quick disconnect for the power, put it on that boat and now you only had to buy one talon for two different boats.
So it’s very very versatile. The other thing is we just came out with a new mounting system that you can push a button and the talon will fold down forward to get in maybe to people’s garages that might have a low clearance or under a bridge, anything that might impair the height of getting around or you know just getting under things, let’s say like a dock or something like that. So there is a lot benefits with a talon.
What I really like, is that it is just one touch of the button… it goes up… one touch and it goes down. I don’t have to hold the button down until it always goes all the way down. It is one and done. That helps me catch a lot more fish. You can save a lot of time on the water. So when you are in the market for a shallow water anchor, try the Talon. read less
