                  Once in a while a product comes along that stands out in the crowded marine/fihing market. In my opinion the DigIn shallow water anchor stands heads above the competition. I live and bass fish in Florida where virtually all of the lakes are shallow. The Dig In allows me to quietly get and stay in position without spooking the fish.

                    I use this device on a 22' potoon boat. This fiberglass pole holds the boat very well, it's easy to push down, easy to pull up, installation also was easy, this pole also holds well in rough water.
