    This time of the year I end up doing a lot of speculation. I know I need a new trolling motor and I know the one I want is the Minnkota Maxxum 70, for more power and battery life. Problem is I start getting pains in my wallet when I look at the prices. So I was looking at the Minnkota Edge 45 which is about half of the Maxxum. Since in the back of my mind Im always looking to upgrade boats anyway, Im kind of leaning towards maybe going with the edge 45 and running two batteries parallel for more capacity. I know Im gonna be dealing with less thrust, but 45lbs is what Ive been using for several years anyway and Ill be saving enough to buy a Hydrowave or some other gadget anyway. Just thinking out loud but would love to hear feedback.
