Hold position in shallow water by inserting the Hobie Stake-out pole into sand or mud. Fiberglass pole with metal tip, rubber grip handle and attachment line system.
Wow - this is the sturdiest stake-out pole i have ever used. Strong - seems like it will take a beating and nearly impossible to break.
Stake out pole works well in waters of 3ft or less, but i found that a 6ft would work much better... I didn't realize until i started using the 5ft how much fishing I was doing at the 4ft depth.. I recommend at least a 6ft stake out pole..
Great pole, well made as all Hobie equipment
I recently bought this along with a PA from ACK. The pole holds very well in water 5 feet or less (as used in the coastal marsh of S. Louisiana). Any deeper and you would have to "spear" the pole into the mud. It's light weight makes this technique pretty much useless. Also, water gets inside the pole and is hard to get out. Otherwise, if you are only using it in shallow water (<5 feet) it is great and holds very well. Otherwise, the heavier (and more expensive) Cajun Anchor would be the way to go.
