Born in Charleston, SC in 1965, C.A. Richardson grew up fishing with his father wrangling any type of fish with multiple types of lures and flies, wading flats and fishing off of gulf piers.The years of on-the-water experience prepared him to become one of the most well known fishing guides, pro-anglers and TV show hosts in Tampa Bay, Florida, and we are proud to have Captain C.A. Richardson on our Power-Pole Team.
All anglers have their niche—the one type of fishing that drives their passion for the sport like no other. The water, the fish, the vessel, the gear – it is all a part of developing your niche and perfecting your angling techniques. In recent years, smaller boats and vessels have become more and more prevalent in the world of fishing, creating new categories of their own – kayak fishing and paddle board fishing.
Team Power-Pole has countless influential pro-anglers that use and represent our shallow water anchors and accessories on a daily basis, but let’s put one well-known pro bass fisherman that has been with us since the beginning – Chris Lane, in the spotlight.
When it comes to fishing, its all about capitalizing on opportunities and making the most of your time on the water. Whether you fish professionally or as a personal hobby, one thing we can all agree on – your equipment should be optimized to give you the best chance of having a successful day on the water.
In 2000, Power-Pole shallow water anchors were introduced to the fishing world, completely revolutionizing the fishing experience for the better. But in 2010, the fishing experience was transformed again with the introduction of the C-Monster Control System, making all Power-Pole shallow water anchors wireless and putting you in control of your anchors at the push of a button.
