The Minn Kota Vantage 101 Freshwater Transom Mount features ultra-responsive 4:1 steering and automatic stow/deploy/trim.
4:1 ARTICULATED STEERING
More response with less effort. Rotating the lower unit 180° is as easy as moving the Tilt/Extend Tiller just 45°. Quicker steering with minimum effort, and stays out of the way of your outboard or kicker motor.
POWER TRIM/STOW AND DEPLOY
When depth and fishing conditions change, all you have to do is push a button to raise or lower your motor. You can also automatically stow the motor at the end of the day or when you're on the move.
Simply lift the directional indicator, rotate it 180° and set it back in place. It's that fast and easy to instantly change direction with the power of Vantage.
Unique tiller extends out a full 31" and tilts up to 45° to put effortless command in your grasp.
VANTAGE BREAKAWAY MOUNT
Unlike conventional transom mounts, the Vantage mounting system breaks away on impact. It's easy to reset, and protects your motor and boat transom from unseen hazards
Motors with Digital Maximizer provide up to five times longer run time on a single charge by drawing only as much power as you need, so they don't waste any energy. These motors are variable speed, so dial in your precise speed and let Digital Maximizer deliver the right amount of power, while conserving your battery - extending your time on the water.
WEEDLESS WEDGE 2 PROP
Push weeds away and take on the thick stuff without battery-draining chopping and hacking. Weedless Wedge™ 2 features swept-back, flared blades for unrelenting, reliable prop performance.
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.
This motor is backed up with Minn Kota's two-year warranty.

Microscopic beads and fabrics float in our waterways, get ingested by fish and other creatures, and impact the environment in lots of negative ways. But despite that knowledge, there is little we know about how these microplastics first enter aquatic food webs. In a pilot study, researchers at the University of Notre Dame are studying the dynamics of just how microscopic plastics are first transferred from filter feeders to fish. Their investigation is using asian clams and sculpins to pinpoint the interactions underway. The researchers originally wanted to use round gobies, a prolific invasive fish in Lake Erie.Read More
In sediment samples taken throughout the world’s oceans, researchers key on shell fragments from single-celled organisms to learn more about the history of an area’s chemistry. But surprisingly little is known about how these organisms form their shells in the first place. In a bid to alleviate some uncertainty, scientists at the University of Washington have imaged some of the actions that take place. As a starting point, the researchers have zeroed in specifically on the time period during which single-celled organisms first start to form their shells. The researchers caught juvenile foraminifera by diving in deep water off Southern California. They then raised them in the lab, using tiny pipettes to feed them brine shrimp during their weeklong lives.Read More
Earlier this year, we covered a work in progress to build a new remotely operated vehicle (ROV) for Yellowstone Lake . It was just an idea back then, but the exploratory craft has since become a reality thanks to some determined researchers and a Kickstarter campaign that reached a goal of $100,000 in funding. Full cost for building the vessel was around $500,000, but crowdfunding a portion of it allowed officials at the Global Foundation for Ocean Exploration (GFOE), a nonprofit engineering group, to spur public interest. In a similar vein, they named the completed ROV “Yogi” in honor of the famous fictional comic book character devised by Hanna-Barbera who gets into trouble at Yellowstone National Park.Read More
