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.

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, Soft Bottom Mode and Rough Water Mode.

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.

FAST, VERTICAL DEPLOYMENT

While the competitor's extended “crab leg” ties up your lines and costs you fish, Talon’s patented sequential vertical deployment is quicker, quieter and stays out of your way.

FAQ on Talon

Can I install an electrical plug on the Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor lead wires?

Yes. Minn Kota offers accessory specifically designed for the Minn Kota Talon.

Do I need a separate battery to operate my Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor?

No. Minn Kota recommends connecting your Talon shallow water anchor to the starting/cranking battery of your boat. 

Does the Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor have a fuse? What size is it? Where can I purchase the fuse?

Two Stage Talons (6' & 8'): Yes, the Talon has an in-line 30A blade style fuse. These can be purchased at any automotive parts store.

How do I determine where and how to mount my Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor?

This will vary from one boat to the next. It is important to check for proper steering and trimming clearances when laying out your installation. See the Talon installation guide for detailed instructions or the Talon adapter bracket selection guide.

How do I know when I should use a mounting bracket for the Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor?

Some boats have irregular shaped transoms and the standard Talon quick release mounting bracket cannot be mounted directly to the transom. In other cases there are other accessories such as trim tabs, transducers, poling platforms, etc., that may require additional clearance. Use the Minn Kota Talon adapter bracket selection guide to select the proper application for your boat.

How do I mount a Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor when I have Trim Tabs?

Talon requires a minimum of 6" of clearance from the mounting surface. If further clearance is required, or it is necessary to mount over top of trim tabs, Minn Kota offers a 6" riser accessory, and a variety of adapter mounting brackets that will give you the proper amount of setback (distance from the transom) to clear trim tabs and/or other accessories. See the Talon installation guide for detailed instructions or the Talon adapter bracket selection guide.

Is the Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor completely battery operated?

Yes. The Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor is a mechanical design that is 100% electricity driven, so there is no messy hydraulic fluid and/or hoses to deal with. 

If I adjust the Minn Kota Talon shallow water anchor extrusion lower to the water, do I gain more depth?

Yes. However the user must be aware that Minn Kota recommends a minimum of 4" up from the bottom of the hull line to minimize spray. Dragging the Talon through the water while underway could cause damage to the Talon and/or transom of your boat.

What is the max boat weight and length that a Talon shallow water anchor can hold?

A single Talon is capable of anchoring a boat up to 28’ in length, and 4,500 lbs. For boats larger than this, we would recommend an additional Talon to ensure proper anchoring capability.

What is the overall length of Talon shallow water anchor when stowed?

Two Stage Models (Produced from 2011 to 2015): 

6' Talon is 45"
8' Talon is 57"

Three Stage Models (Produced from 2014 to present): 

8' Talon is 41" (Produced from 2015 to present). 
10' Talon is 49.5"
12' Talon is 57.5"

When do I want to use the reverse angle on the bracket when mounting Talon?

Some boat models have transoms that angle towards the inside of the boat. In these cases, the Talon quick release bracket can be inverted to account for this reversed angle without the hassle of shims. 

Where can I find a copy of the Talon 10'-12' owner's manual?

You can access the Talon 10'-12' owner's manual here.

Which side of the boat do I want to install Talon?

Minn Kota recommends installing Talon on the port (left) side of your boat in order to give you the maximum amount of clearance between the boat engine and the control panel on Talon. However, Minn Kota's Talon can be installed on either side of the boat. 

Why do I want to be able to adjust the Talon up or down when mounting on my boat?

Each boats sits differently in the water, and has varying amounts of draft (hull under the water line). While Minn Kota recommends that the Talon mounting bracket be mounted as high up on the transom as possible, Minn Kota also recommends that the bottom of the Talon be a minimum of 4" up from the bottom line of the hull of your boat. Having this adjustability will minimize any spray that may occur while underway, and offer the greatest amount of stability to the Talon

 

  • FAQ on Raptor

    Are the mounting brackets for Talon and Raptor Shallow Water Anchors interchangeable?

    While the mounting hole patterns are the same for both Talon and Raptor Shallow Water Anchors, outboard engine clearance and angle of deployment are also areas that should be considered. In most scenarios Raptors can be mounted to the three-piece Talon adapter bracket.
     
  • How long are the power leads from the hydraulic pump of my Raptor Shallow Water Anchor?
    The Raptor power cord is a little over 7 feet long.
     
  • How Long are the hydraulic lines on a Raptor Shallow Water Anchor?
    Raptor hydraulic hoses are 15 feet from the connection at the cylinder. The other end of the UP hose will be about 8-12" shorter than the hose connected at the DOWN side of the cylinder. Extension kits are available if more length is needed.
     
  • How do I pair my smart phone to my Raptor shallow water anchor?
    Raptor Shallow Water Anchors can connect to your smartphone via the Raptor App from the iOS App Store
     
  • How do I change the deployment and retraction speed of my Raptor shallow water anchor?
    A single press of the Anchor Speed/Anchor Selection Button will display the current operating speed. While the speed is displayed, continue to single press through the operating speed to toggle between slow, medium and fast.
     
  • How do I cycle between anchoring modes on my Raptor shallow water anchor?
    On your Raptor wireless remote, a single press will display the current Anchor Mode.
     
     
  • How do I enable/disable Active Anchoring on my Raptor shallow water anchor?
    On the Active Anchoring Model, the Anchor Mode button will enable and disable Active Anchoring.
