Minn Kota Talon Shallow Water Anchors
Deeper. Tougher. Quieter. Smarter. You demand a lot out of your shallow water anchor, and Talon delivers all of it and then some. The world’s only 12' shallow water anchor also boasts game-changing toughness, speed, strength and stealth operation. Stand your ground with Talon.
ELECTRO-MECHANICAL DESIGN: With no hydraulics, the lightweight, space-saving Talon is as easy to install as a trolling motor. You can do it yourself, and save the money on a costly installation. Talon's innovative design - featuring minimal moving parts, no hinge points and a motor that stays above the waterline - ensures that you're always in stealth mode. Stays silent below the water - thanks to a motor that is always a few feet above the waterline. The competition's noisy hydraulic pump sits in the bilge, right where the fish can hear it coming.
USER SELECTABLE ANCHORING MODES: Anchoring in hard bottom isn’t the same as anchoring into mud. With Talon, you can choose between multiple modes to ensure the right hold and fast, easy anchor retraction. AUTO-DRIVE MODE: Powers the spike into the bottom with three increasingly aggressive hits. SOFT BOTTOM MODE: For less aggressive anchoring – and easier anchor retraction – in water with a muddy or silted bottom. ROUGH WATER MODE: For heavy wind and chop, this mode performs three consecutive Auto-Drive sequences at 10-second intervals for a triple-strength hold.
AUTO UP/DOWN: Hit the button, then get back to fishing. Only Talon has Auto Up/Down, which makes lowering and raising the anchor as easy as using a car’s automatic windows. Utilizing bottom-sensing technology, Talon automatically knows when it has anchored, so you don’t have to hold down the button and wait.
FAST VERTICLE DEPLOYMENT: Head-to-head, Talon beats any other shallow water anchor in a race to the bottom. Talon deploys vertically in three stages . While the competitor's extended “crab leg” ties up your lines and costs you fish, Talon’s patented sequential deployment is quicker, quieter and stays out of your way.
2X Anchoring Force Talon is built with double the force of the competition to lock you into your spot with unparalleled strength and security.
BUILT IN WAVE ABSORPTION: Talon allows your boat to move up or down without affecting the anchor. Its exclusive built-in floating suspension keeps you locked to the bottom, even in rough water.
LED DEPTH INDICATOR: Track anchor depth at a glance. The LED lights on Talon show you how far down you’re deployed with each light indicating two feet of depth.
DEPLOYMENT NOTIFICATION ALARM: Talon’s indestructible composite spike bends but doesn’t break - even if you try to take off while deployed. And if you do that, Talon’s the only anchor with an audible alert to let you know.
STANDARD WIRELESS REMOTES: Two wireless remotes – and a dash mount holder – come standard to give you push-button control of Talon from anywhere on the boat. All remotes are waterproof and can float.
TRIPLE DEBRIS FIELDS: Three custom-fit shields on the bottom and inside of Talon prevent mud or anything else from being pulled back into the unit. The indestructible spike goes out, and nothing comes back in.
VERSATILE ADJUSTMENTS: While other anchors limit you to one position, Talon’s Quick Release Bracket enables up and down adjustment, 30° of pivoting, and easy removal when Talon’s not in use.
SALTWATER TESTED: Over 80 years of trolling motor design and testing taught us how to full combat the corrosive effects of saltwater. And we build that know-how into every Talon, so saltwater won't stand a chance.
WARRANTY: Talon's unbreakable composite fiberglass spike is built with outstanding flexibility and can withstand years of abuse – we guarantee it for life.
Five-Year Warranty Talon carries a five-year limited warranty – plus a lifetime warranty on the spike and a five-year warranty on all brackets.
