Default Trolling Motor Batteries- 24v motor

So my trolling motors crapped out and I need to replace. Would love some recommendations on brand and group size? Never understood which ones were better for certain applications. Can't make out which group I have, but I have one interstate and one exide. Lasted about 5 years so not too bad. Just looking for opinions on what's out ther. I have a seperate cranking battery and my trolling motor is a 24v 80lbs motorguide.
Thanks

Batteries Plus has the Duracell Ultra grp 31 marine deep cycles on sale if you order on-line and pick up in store - 10% off plus a $10 mail in rebate. I just picked up two for my new Ulterra.

Not the highest rated batteries but not bad either. For the $$ seems like a good deal to me.

group 27 12.00" 6.63" 9.06" LxWxH

group 31 12.9" 6.75" 9.27" LxWxH

approximate dimensions.

I'd roll with 31s

should be a big jump with amps per hour over the 27s

This is what I run and I have never come close to draining them.

I use the modified #2 wiring schema in the last diagram so I can use them as starter batteries.

I want to buy a stealth charger for them as well even though so far it has been unnecessary.

You could do some research on 4x 6V deep cycle golf cart batteries wires in series to 24V. Trojon T105s would be an example... Compare cycles (e.g., to 50% depth of discharge or whatever) to other options.

Duracell from Samsclub/Batteries + are renamed Deka batteries.

I get mine from Samsclub 3 group 27's on my 36v trolling motor and 1 group 24 for starting.
Would recommend the Group 31's for a 24v system if you can make them fit.

Deka are made by East Penn Manufacturing, Support American Made.

Default Lifeline Batteries

They are mil.spec. batteries. Not sure what that means. I believe they weld the lead plates together. I have had two 12 volts for my 24v MororGuide, but didn't use the motor much, and I neglected the batts. Now one was dead, but taking a charge. I have no idea what amp hrs. I have in them, or if I need to replace them.
Is the Duracell a marine battery?
