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.

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.

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?
