Fishing 4 life
Added Nov 19, 2013
|I installed my bracket yesterday (took me about 20 mins) and hit the water with my son. I have a 20′ Viper Cobra bass boat, which probably has one of the longest front decks of any bass boat out there, so the anchor pole fit perfectly in either of my rod lockers. Now for the best part … I was in a bay with a breeze wanting to push me into some slop that I wanted to fish with my frog. When I pushed the pole thru the bracket and into the muck, I honestly … no … really, I honestly didn’t expect the boat to literally “stick like glue” in that same spot, the whole time I fished it. I also tried it on a harder bottom with the same results. The spike may not penetrate as much as it does on a soft bottom, but because the pole “floats” thru the bracket tube, it stays in contact, and sticks to the bottom, even with wind and waves. Another feature that’s worth mention is the time to deploy, it only takes 2-3 seconds! There are other, similar “manual anchors” available, but after having watched some of the videos online, they seem to be flimsy in comparison. I think the fluted, larger diameter aluminum pole is the key. You’re also much more affordable than any I have seen. After using the SkinnyWater anchor just one time, I can’t see why ANYONE would need to buy an automated shallow water anchor at 10 times the price! It just doesn’t make sense. One very satisfied customer!|
