Can you overcharge a trolling motor battery?

How do I know if my trolling motor battery is bad?
Repeat ever couple of hours or when you notice a power drop. If one battery drops more than the others, that one is probably bad. If the batteries are being charged fully, start the day at the same voltage and discharge equally, then they are probably all worn out. Just a regular voltmeter.
