Professional boat rigger Andy Kratochvil of FishLectronics walks us through a step-by-step installation of a new Minn Kota Terrova electric-steer trolling motor. The Terrova is arguably the most popular multi-species trolling motor and comes equipped with all the latest and greatest technology in terms of GPS-enabled boat control, networking, and mechanical operation.


Kratochvil tackles upgrading a used Lund 1875 Pro Guide aluminum tiller fishing boat and shares several tips and tricks to speed the process and ensure the job is done right the first time. This video is aimed squarely at the “do it yourself” angler that likes saving money and enjoys tackling some hands-on projects.

And if you’re in the market for a cable-steer, check out the comprehensive Minn Kota Ultrex and Fortrex installation videos.

Good luck, and we’re sure Andy wouldn’t mind handling the project if it’s outside your comfort zone.
