Minn Kota Wins "Best Boating Accessory" with MEGA Down Imaging

Minn Kota has earned top honors at the fishing industry's most prestigious trade show, the International Convention of Allied Sportfishing Trades (ICAST). The new Minn Kota trolling motor with Built-In MEGA Down Imaging was voted "Best Boating Accessory" by attending media and buyers during the American Sportfishing Association's 2018 ICAST New Product Showcase.

"Built-In MEGA Down Imaging brings the world's best fishing electronics and boat positioning products together in one connected solution," said Brad Henry, Minn Kota brand manager. "We are proud to be acknowledged by buyers and media with this award and look forward to this product helping anglers everywhere find and catch more fish."

Down Imaging transducer integrated into the trolling motor, providing a clean set up at the bow for anglers. Humminbird's ultra-clear MEGA Imaging is the first Down Imaging technology to enter the megahertz range with performance that's nearly three times greater than traditional 455 kHz frequencies. It results in the clearest, sharpest on-screen images ever seen.With Built-In MEGA Down Imaging, the transducer is housed in the indestructible lower motor unit and the wiring runs through the composite shaft providing clean rigging that is protected from wear and tear. Having the transducer integrated into the trolling motors allows anglers to see, with unmatched clarity, what is directly below the bow of the boat, allowing anglers to make better decisions on where, and how, to fish.As part of the One-Boat Network the new Minn Kota trolling motors with Built-In MEGA Down Imaging feature i-Pilot Link The new trolling motors are compatible with Humminbird SOLIX, second generation HELIX, and ONIX models and will be available in the fall of 2018.
