Established in 1934, Minn Kota® has led the way in the trolling industry category and been among the most celebrated companies in the fishing and marine industry. The company has led the way in product innovation and cutting-edge technology from day one, when O.G. Schmidt first strapped a propeller to a starter motor from a Model A. Schmidt’s idea has forever impacted the sport of fishing.

Minn Kota designs and builds its motors in Mankato, Minn., but the company didn’t stop with the trolling motor. Over the last 83 years, the company has continued to be an innovator in the fishing industry. The focus on new ideas and cutting-edge technology has led the company through several milestones – foot pedals and remotes to operate the trolling motor, GPS-enabled motors, battery chargers, and shallow water anchors.
