A simple, dependable solution for anchoring your recreational boat, bass boat, flats boat, kayak or skiff in up to 11' of water (depending on pole size). Designed for tournament fishermen, Shallow Water Anchors are lightweight, easy to install and slide quietly into the water so they won’t scare the fish away. They’ll keep your boat pointed into the wind or current, plus prevent damage to grass, lake or stream beds. The 3/4"dia., high-strength fiberglass poles with rubber handles are available in 8', 10' or 12' lengths, double as push poles and stow in your existing rod holders or can be placed within easy reach with the included clips. Select a marine grade, anodized aluminum mount (required for anchoring) to match your particular boat. 5" offset transom mount recommended for boats without trim tabs, 10" offset with trim tabs; 3" rise bow mount for boats with shallow gunwales, 6" rise for high gunwales. Includes all necessary mounting hardware and complete instructions. Lifetime warranty on all mounts.
