Conservation and protecting the areas we love to fish are core values here at Power-Pole. We are proud to support many conservation efforts across the U.S., and the Herman Lucerne Memorial (HLM) Backcountry Fishing Championship is an event that we have sponsored for the past six years.
Dean Rojas is no stranger to the Bassmaster circuit. The Arizona native has been competing in Bassmaster contests for over 20 years, amassing impressive distinctions including four title wins, while also holding the world record for combination of five largest bass in any Bassmaster tournament at 45 pounds, 2 ounces.
Power-Pole Drift Paddles are a valuable tool for taking control of boats in saltwater fishing situations, but they also have extremely practical applications when fishing freshwater systems — and nobody knows this better than Travis Bunting, a three-time national Crappie Masters champion, Power-Pole Pro Staff Member and owner of Muddy Water Baits.
One of the most impressive innovations to come out of ICAST this year was Power-Pole’s integration with the C-Monster protocol and NMEA 2000 gateway into the Lowrance Multifunction Display (MFD) systems.
Jimmy Houston needs no intro. With his unabashed laughter and vibrant enthusiasm for all things fishing, you can hear Jimmy coming a mile away. For a living legend in the industry for over 50 years, you would think he’s seen a few things. Here are a few snippets from a recent chat with the man.
Forty-eight kayak anglers from all around the world descended upon the shores of Lake Vanern in Amal, Sweden, on May 21, 2018, to participate in the 7th Hobie Fishing Worlds. After the dust settled, German angler Salah Eddine el Barbouchi took home top honors.
“It was fantastic fishing for all 48 anglers, with a ton of action from both eligible species of northern pike and perch,” said Keeton Eoff, Director of Global Strategy and Development at Hobie. “The event connected respected kayak anglers from countries as far away as Australia, Brazil, China and Poland — it was a fantastic experience for kayakers to meet others with the same passion.”
Power-Pole customers are familiar with the concepts of swift, silence, secure and having virtually no impact on the environment when on the water. The idea of not leaving a carbon footprint, or should we say, having a “Leave it like you found it” mentality, is a mantra here at Power-Pole.
There’s no doubt that Power-Pole products aid anglers in all facets of positioning and anchoring for the ultimate advantage to putting fish in the box. What many boaters don’t realize is that Power-Pole shallow water anchor applications aren’t just limited to fishermen, but can be utilized on pontoon boats to facilitate maximum fun.
Ever have that sinking feeling? You know the one you had on windy days before you had a Power-Pole shallow water anchor on your boat. Remember drifting into that big school of redfish or past that favorite patch of lily pads full of big bass. Make sure you are ready for that perfect shot! Instead of blaming the product, know that the maintenance of your gear and keeping it a well-oiled machine is your responsibility as an angler and boater.
