The Minn Kota Vantage 80 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.

This time of year, anglers all over are fishing for bass they can see in the shallows. Some bass will be easy to catch and some are nearly impossible, like those that are in the act of spawning instead of just guarding their beds. There are a few things that I do to determine if the fish is going to bite and if they are worth spending time fishing for. Locating Bedding Bass One of the best ways to find bedding bass is to cruise the shallows with your trolling motor at about 40 or 50%. I have found that this is the best speed to both cover water and avoid spooking fish. Anything faster will scare fish away long before you get to them.Read More
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
