  • Anchors Aweigh for Better Fishing

    Nov 29, 2017
    Some saltwater anglers have a one-dimensional mindset when it comes to anchors. They are meant to keep the boat in place. Savvier anglers use their anchors as a tool for catching more and bigger fish. For inshore fishing that means being able to stay put and move again quickly. Being able to stay put and move again quickly is the norm for inshore anglers. One spot might be a reef or wreck and the next move could be shallower around a creek mouth or flat. All that moving necessitates the need for other options besides the ball and chain anchors used by recreational boaters.

  • Shallow Water Anchor Systems for Better Inshore Fishing

    Nov 15, 2017
    Back in the day, staying put on a productive inshore spot meant quietly slipping an anchor overboard to secure the boat. Or impaling into the bottom a push pole tied with a line to the boat. Either way, a clanging anchor chain against the hull, or the crunching noise of the push pole into a shell bottom could send the fish scattering. Now there is a nearly foolproof solution. Shallow water anchor systems make the jog easy with the touch of a finger to a key fob worn around the neck. The mainstay brands are the Power-Pole and Minn Kota Talon.
