The Minn Kota Edge 45 Freshwater Bow-Mount Motor lets your step right up to treacherous stump fields, tangled weedbeds, or punishing wind and waves.
Big challenges like those usually mean bigger fish. And when you've got the unrelenting, rugged construction of Edge - available in foot or hand control models - you've got the power to rise to the occasion.
The updated motor mounts on the Edge motors feature an extruded upper arm made from marine-grade anodized aluminum that is built for years of trouble-free use.
The Edge cable-steer motors feature a redesigned motor head that is constructed of highly impact-resistant, hybrid composite material for unmatched durability. The head also integrates a high-visibility directional indicator. And the ultra-responsive foot pedal is ergonomically designed for precise speed and steering control.
Edge motors also utilize a Latch & Door mounting system for easy removal of the motor for security and storage. Adding to its ruggedness, The Edge has a composite shaft that is guaranteed for life
Latch & Door Design
Edge's innovative Latch & Door Design makes it easy to remove the motor from the mount. It's perfect for safe and secure storage, and features a soft grip knob.
Directional Indicator - Edge
The easy-to-read directional indicator leaves no doubt about where you're headed. Available on foot control models only.
Get wired to the water with our ultra-responsive foot pedal. Its new design is easier to operate, with more room for your foot and more exact speed control. Included on select models.
5-Speed motors put you in command with forward, reverse and multiple speed settings.
Indestructible Composite Shaft - Guaranteed For Life!
Pound for pound, our composite shaft is stronger than steel. It flexes on impact and won't break, kink or corrode. That's why we're confident enough to make it the only trolling motor shaft that's guaranteed for life.
Cool, Quiet Power
Nothing runs cooler or more quietly than a Minn Kota. Our extra large windings and commutators dissipate heat, resulting in cooler operation, extended battery power, and longer motor life. And our unique bearing system reduces friction to cut fish-spooking noise. So quiet, they'll never hear you coming.

It may have taken 20 years and $20 million to develop, but Lake Erie researchers working to fight harmful algal blooms (HABs) now have a new tool to safeguard drinking water: ESPniagara. The advanced sampler has been called a “lab in a can” for its ability to sample microcystins, the most common algal toxin these days, in almost real time. The big gadget’s name is a mashup between “ESP,” for environmental sample processor, and the name of Admiral Oliver Hazard Perry’s ship during the War of 1812. “We wanted to name it something that was significant to Lake Erie,” said Tim Davis, molecular biologist and lead HABs researcher at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s Great Lakes Environmental Research Lab (NOAA GLERL) in Ann Arbor, Mich.Read More
As a research project underway at the University of California (UC) - Santa Barbara shows, sometimes you’ve got to leave the Earth to adequately study some of its most basic processes. Researchers at the university are partnering with the International Space Station to complete an investigation of fluid dynamics. The lab in microgravity is providing them with an important dataset for gauging the impacts of the force on our planet’s fluid movement. The experiments in space , to be run by astronauts, are fairly straightforward. Cameras will be employed to monitor different sediment particles as they interact with one another in fluid in near-zero gravity. Light shone at and through the setups will help researchers track the motion and observe the density of the particles.Read More
A sampling project led by University of Rhode Island researchers is helping to reveal the dynamics of aquatic health in three streams while supporting undergraduate education and local drinking water. The effort, relying on dip nets and handheld water quality meters, also gave students the chance to connect with Rhode Island’s hydrology. For Britta Anderson, graduate student in the department of geosciences at the university, the project offered something else. “Last summer was my first summer, so I had experience and the knowledge from that,” said Anderson, who oversaw undergraduate students who assisted during this year’s leg of the project. “I was able to continue this summer as more of a mentor.Read More
