Optima Batteries Blue Top, Deep Cycle Battery, Group Size 34, 750 CCA

Has anyone used one of these batteries in their boat for powering a trolling Motor? How did it perform for you over a long day of fishing on the lake? Can it be charged w/a standard onboard charger?

Going to use it w/a 46 lb. thrust MotorGuide trolling motor.

I use that on my MotorGuide wireless 55 thrust usually gets me through the day. Depends on wind and currents of course. It's a dual purpose I believe for starting or trolling. Been using a standard charger. Going on third year now.
