Shallow water anchors have become a mainstay in serious bass fishing and their utility extends to all fishing so long as the target species spend time in shallow water. They allow you to instantly anchor your boat with the push of a button, a huge benefit when casting to shallow water targets.
Power-Pole shallow water anchors allow you to fine-tune settings using their C-Monster control system. Pro bass angler Patrick Walters demonstrates how he uses the C-Monster app (iOS and Android compatible) to slow Power-Pole deployment speed. This reduces the noise made when the poles hit bottom, a big plus when targeting spooky fish around the spawn.
