The Minn Kota Endura 50 freshwater trolling motor is possibly the most popular motor on the market today.
The company says “Where form meets function.” What they mean is this is a motor that looks good, does what it is supposed to and is built to last. They back this up with a market leading 3 year guarantee so you could say they are putting their money where their mouth is. Can’t say fairer than that.
The Endura 50 comes in two shaft lengths, the 36″ and the 42″. Both models run on a deep cycle 12 volt battery and both have a thrust rating of 50lbs.

This is a transom mount trolling motor with the Minn Kota lever lock bracket system which is built to be tough, warp free and resistant to UV damage, once it is on it stays on.
To make controlling the boat easy from any position the Endura 50 has a telescoping handle with ergonomic grip so you can rest assured you are not going to get cramped fingers. With this motor you get 5 forward speeds and three reverse so what ever you are fishing for you can match the drift and stay on top of those fish.
The Endura 50 also features Minn Kota’s indestructible shaft, a composite material three times stronger than steel which will also flex if you strike a submerged obstacle, it bends so it does not break. Again this shaft is backed up with a class leading guarantee.
Well, tats all the sales talk but does it do the job? The only answer can be yes, it is a great trolling motor and if America had a national boat motor this would probably be it.
