Minn Kota Raptor shallow-water anchor system
Description and Application:The new Minn Kota Raptor shallow-water anchoring system was engineered to stand up to the harshest conditions giving anglers the ability to confidently hold their boat position in countless fishing situations. Raptor comes standard with innovative technology called Active Anchoring, which monitors anchor hold and adjusts automatically to chaining conditions while the complimenting Auto-Bottom Modes senses bottom hardness to ensure the right amount of force is delivered for a secure hold every time. The Raptor works seamlessly into the One-Boat Network, which functions iPilot Link on the Humminbird/Minn Kota platform. Raptor is available in 8- and 10-foot models and in four colors.
Staff Perspective: With technology constantly changing, it can be hard to keep up, but some tools are worth having no matter what. The simplicity of Raptor and how it seamlessly integrates onto your boat and with Humminbird electronics makes them an easy add-on. If you’ve never had shallow-water anchors on your boat, you’ll have an awakening once you do. They are a critical tool for many fishing applications, and you won’t have another boat without them.—TA
