    Most of the water I fish in florida is shallow 15' or less. Not many deep lakes in my area .
    I was going to put a power pole on my boat.
    An old dude [I'm 65] I was chatting with at the river sugested using two Eye bolts and just drop my push pole thru them and into the bottem .Works great,cost zip and has no maintance .
    I should have said Smart old dude.
    try it you'll like it

    Thats similar to what we do when duck hunting. Shove the push pole into the bottom and tie off with the bow rope.

    It don't take me long to get smart when I look at a 1600$ price tag on a power pole

    Exactly what is a power pole? I think we call them fake trees. Just a pole you shove in the mud and tie to. I may be wrong. But,we just use conduit.

    OK! I just gotta ask!:eek:oooh:

    What are the advantages of using a "Power Pole" over an anchor or two?

    And why is it called a Power Pole?

    Power are mostly used in the flats when your trailing a school of reds are trout it stops the drift and does not spook the fish (like anchor chain are a splash in the water ) hope this help you

    Thanks Harold! I thought there must be a good reason.

    Works in shallow water also if you need to keep your motor tilted up and can't use the trolling motor.
