I have a new 80lb thrust 24v Minn Kota Riptide trolling motor on my boat. It has lots of power, and handles my 18' boat well. The problem I am experiencing is with grass. When this motor gets into grass, its stops way too easy. I can lift it out of the water a couple of inches and let it throw the grass out and its all good again. For a motor with as much power as it has, it just seems to get bogged down way too easy. I called Dixie Trolling Motors today and was told they are all like that. Is that the way these new motors are? If so, I want my old motor back!!
