Minnow Fin for Outboard Trolling Motors
Keep your edge while fishing for bass, walleye or other game fish with the NEW Minnow Fin by Uncle Norm’s Marine Products. Whether you’re battling wind, water currents or the boat’s bobbing, the added 77 square inches of rudder area give roughly 10X the effective control compared to the electric trolling motor alone. The vertical fins increase effectiveness of steering with less power consumption. The horizontal fluke acts like a shock absorber to dampen boat bobbing increasing your comfort and safety.
The Minnow installs in minutes with just a screwdriver. It will provide directional assistance whenever it is in the water. The steering response is improved when using thrust or when using another motor for propulsion. If fishing conditions require drifting and working the current while stalking the ‘Elusive Lunker’ the minnow will add stability and limit wind effect. Fight the fish, not your boat. Tested and proven effective by Northwest fishermen.
Designed for Minn Kota 12v, 24v & 36v trolling motors.

The minnow fin performed flawless. Used to toll in combination with kicker in windy conditions to steer. Using minkota on 24 lead deep cycle doubled my battery life. The minnow will pay for itself in no time.
The fin is amazing and helps my 55lb trolling motor keep my 17ft center console on course while trolling Lake Michigan. Before getting this little gem - the motor just couldn’t keep up with currents and wind. Now trolling is a breeze! Thank you!!
The Minnow Fin will not mount to the Minn Kota Terrova bow mounted trolling motor without modifications. I cut a 1" square notch in one of the tip of the motor mount. I also cut a notch in the middle of the mounting bracket, !/4" deep and .40" wide at the location of the Terrova skeg for better clearance. The problem is docking the Terrova, there are clearance issues. I also installed 1" rubber neoprene strips under the screw clamps to protect the Terrova paint finish and wired the clamps together so they won't slip when installed.
After talking to a guy in their shop it's kind of universal fit, for the terrova you have to cut the mounting area back about 1/2" on both side so it fits in lock mechanism and bend the mounting area tabs so it fits flush. I was told they are working on a better fit for different motors. It is an excellent design especially it keeps the front steady in rougher water
I have a 16ft Hewscraft with a Minkota trolling motor that I us to steer with. After buying the Minnow fin I no longer have problems with controlling the boat and I seem to use less battery. It's a must have if your in windy weather.
