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.

Baltimore’s Inner Harbor and the rivers that flow into it are important sources of water to Chesapeake Bay, popular recreation sites and the targets of an ambitious clean-up plan. But the city has for some time lacked an environmental monitoring system for tracking water quality in the harbor continuously. That is about to change, thanks to a collaboration between the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) and Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). It will lead to the new installation of a suite of sensors that will provide the public and scientists with the first comprehensive, real time look at water quality in the harbor.Read More
A parasite that caused a massive fish kill in Montana’s Yellowstone River has been found in at least seven other rivers in the state, according to the Bozeman Daily Chronicle . Scientists with the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks department made the find. So far, the parasite has been confirmed in the upper and lower Madison, East Gallatin, Bighorn, Stillwater, and Boulder Rivers. It had already been confirmed in the Jefferson and Shields Rivers. The microscopic parasite causes proliferative kidney disease, one of the most serious diseases to impact whitefish and trout. The effect of the disease on Yellowstone’s fish populations is exacerbated by other stressors like near-record low flows, consistent high temperatures and the disturbance caused by recreational activities.Read More
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
