Default Best battery

I can get 3-4 years from a Walmart battery at about $100
get the biggest one you can get. I fish 3-4 days a week
when it's warm above 50 deg.

Do you guys keep them on a trickle charger or charge and use them?

I have been very impressed with the Duracell agm batteries from Sam's and they come with a 18 month warranty.

keep on a charger that will charge when charge is needed and keep battery charged. Your battery will last a long time if you do. Any battery made by Penn is a good battery. Can find on internet which ones they make of the various brands not their own name brand.

I charge the battery as soon as I put the boat up, no more until I get back again.

Fancy batteries aside (AGM,s, Optimas, etc..), the Walmart Battery comes from one of 2 or 3 suppliers, that also supply others - West Marine, NAPA etc... I have had NPA marine batteries last me 6 years with good maintenenace and a quality charger/conditioner. I have had the same type of batteries last me only 2 years too. With these low end batteries it's all down to the quality of lead the manufacturers can obtain and that varies from year to year. I stick with the cheap batteries because I do not see how the high end ones can last any longer than 4 to 6 years, so why pay more?
