About Shallow Water Anchors

If you are a flats fisherman or other type of angler who fishes “skinny water” and are currently using a conventional anchor, consider a shallow water anchor. Why? Because aside from eliminating the hassle and mess of using a conventional anchor, shallow water anchors can help you to catch more fish! There are several types of shallow water anchors from which to choose: manual, hydraulic and electric.

Manually-Deployed Shallow Water Anchors

Manual models cost the least and are the easiest to install. They consist of a pole that is passed through a mount and then pressed into the bottom. Along with a choice of 8', 10' and 12' poles, manufacturers such as Dig IN Anchors offer a selection of mounts designed for installation at the bow or stern of your boat. Many anglers choose to install a mount at both locations to prevent their boat from swinging around as the direction of the current or wind changes. Dig IN Shallow Water Anchors are a simple addition to most any bass boat, flats boat, kayak or skiff.

Key advantages of manually-deployed Dig IN Shallow Water Anchors:

  • Easy five-minute installation
  • Include all mounting hardware and quick release puck
  • Simple to use
  • Lightweight poles weigh less than 2 1/2 pounds
  • Slide into water quietly to avoid spooking fish
  • Eliminate drift
  • Poles easily store in rod holders or in provided clips
  • Poles multi-task as push poles
  • Offered in pole lengths to anchor in 7, 9 and 11 feet of water
  • Will not damage grass or stream beds
  • Eliminate messy weeds and mud from fouling your boat
  • Eliminate worry about wrapping an anchor rode on your prop
  • Deploy much faster than conventional anchors
  • Spend less time anchoring and more time fishing
  • Cost less and are easier to install compared to hydraulic models

Hydraulic Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors

So what advantage do hydraulic models have over manual models? With a quick touch of the included remote control, you can deploy your Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchor nearly instantly. For ultimate convenience, many anglers equip their boats with a remote foot control. Stealthy drift fishermen can pin their boat to the location of a bite without removing their eyes from the target of their casts. Flats fishermen can immediately stop their boat as soon as a fish is spotted. This means fewer lost opportunities and more fish caught! It’s no wonder that many tournament bass fishermen equip their boats with hydraulic shallow water anchors. Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors can be installed on any small skiff, bass boat, flats boat or bay boat.

Key advantages of hydraulically-deployed Power-Pole Shallow Water Anchors:

  • Deploy faster than manual models
  • Remote operation keeps hands free for unbroken fishing activities
  • Sleek, aerodynamic profile won’t act like a sail when racing to your favorite spot
  • Aircraft-grade aluminum for strength and durability
  • Soft-close system for quiet operation to avoid spooking fish
  • Stainless steel and brass hardware, built for fresh- and saltwater environments
  • C-Monster 2.0 app for Android or iOS-powered device enables customization to match fishing style
  • C-Monster 2.0 control system offers excellent signal strength and range
  • C-Monster 2.0 pump and controllers communicate 100 times faster than previous models
  • Drive-off protection—deployed poles flex but won’t break if boat driven forward
  • Lightweight, won’t affect hole-shot or top-end speed when transom-mounted

Electric Power-Pole MICRO Anchors are a great choice for smaller craft

In addition to their line of hydraulically-operated shallow water anchors, Power-Pole also offers the MICRO Anchor. This system consists of a compact electric motor that deploys a 3/4 inch diameter spike (sold separately) into the bottom. With available options, this system can be mounted to the deck or transom of your boat. The compact design (and lower cost compared to hydraulic models) makes the MICRO Anchor an attractive choice for small skiffs, kayaks or other craft that are too small to accommodate larger hydraulic models.

Key advantages of electrically-deployed Power-Pole MICRO Anchors:

  • Silent motor deploys and retracts anchor spike to avoid spooking fish
  • Easy installation and removal
  • Compatible with C-Monster remote control via included controller or through a free app for Android or iOS smartphones
  • Compatible with 3/4" spike (sold separately)
