Shallow water anchors
« on: Jun 21, 10 - 09:00:58 AM »
Personally I can't afford a power pole, but I love the concept and I was doing some research on some cheaper manual alternatives...

I found 3 similiar style anchors:

1)Stay-put

2)wang anchor

3)Stick-it

Does anybody use these or know anybody that does? Do they work good in windy scenerios?

I have a 18 ft Shoalwater so its pretty light so it should be able to hold pretty good...


Thanks fellas

I use a stake-out-stick and have used it in 30 mph winds on my 20' boat and have never had it come loose.

We use the 7' Stick-It on our Majek 16 and it works great for us.

The Stick-It comes with (2) ropes a short one and a longer one.  We typically use the longer one tied to a bow cleat and the Stick-It then goes into the bottom, it holds really well.

We have the Stick-It mounting clips mounted to the boat so the Stick-It is alway secure when we are running.

I've used a 10' PVC pipe as an anchor and never had any problems

A guide I go with periodically uses a stake out stick on his 25' Haynie in Baffin Bay. Have never had a problem with to my knowledge.

my bro just bought the stick it pole and that thing works good he has a 21ft majek rfl and sunday it held the boat in a stiff wind just fine .i have a stiffy for my kayak and the stick it pole being a little thinner was easier to stick in hard sand.

i've seen the "stick it" anchor here in laguna heights, (port isabel) at bayside marine.  it comes with two ropes and the clips as someone mentioned before.  they want 89 plus tax for it, 8 footer.  they also have  "the brake" sold seperatly, the whole package runs about 125 plus tax. 
i am getting ready to buy me one or make one, haven't decided yet. i want to be able to stop when i get a fish on so i don't loose so much drift while taking the fish off etc.
