The Minn Kota Edge 70 Freshwater Bow-Mount Trolling Motor lets you step right up to the 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.

An understanding of climate change’s effects on the environment has become commonplace and grows every day, but one researcher from Florida State University is looking to answer a new question: What are climate change’s effects on people’s health? In one of the first studies of its kind, Chris Uejio, an assistant professor at FSU, and a team of researchers studied how climate change can affect the roughly 20 million Americans (according to the Environmental Protection Agency) who consume untreated drinking water on a daily basis. Because climate forecasts are predicting higher rainfall rates over the next few decades, coming down in intense storms, Uejio said those flashes could cause flare-ups in waterborne illnesses.Read More
We put together this infographic on data buoys for our Spring 2017 edition of the Environmental Monitor ( PDF available online ). Organizations across the globe use data buoy systems to observe and monitor atmospheric and oceanographic conditions in remote locations. Measurements range from air pressure, humidity, wind speed and direction to wave height, water temperature, dissolved oxygen and other water quality parameters. With the help of national and international networks, reliable and comprehensive data sets are made available for research and public safety.Read More
The Spring 2017 Environmental Monitor is on the way to subscribers this month.
