#The Power-Pole Drift PaddleJL Marine Systems Inc
Power-Pole Drift PaddleFor many years, all over the country, anglers have dealt with windy conditions on the water, one of the most common ways to slow down your boat is with the use of a drift sock. Unfortunately, as effective as the sock may be it?s messy and difficult to work with, course corrections are not accurate, retrieval is backbreaking work and storing a wet sock on board means having to clean the boat after every use. Surely there?s a better way to achieve the accurate drift speed and direction without the hard work and wet mess.Fast forward the evolutionary clock of technology to today?s Power-Pole shallow water anchor, the advanced hydraulic anchor system that?s famous for boat control, is changing the world of fresh and salt water fishing again. By adding the Power-Pole Drift Paddle accessory suddenly there is drift control and accuracy that anglers have dreamed about. It?s a whole new species of deep-water control.The Power-Pole Drift Paddle comes with all the hardware to easily install on any 8? or 10? Power-Pole anchor at the dock or on the water. It features seven quick-change locking positions to give you complete and easy course correction. The Drift Paddle enables you to change the bow angle from port to starboard. It slows the boat up to 50% and because it attaches to the Power-Pole anchor you can slow the boat at the touch of a button while you continue to cast without interruption. At the end of a drift simply retract the Power-Pole, which lifts the Drift Paddle completely out of the water, then motor back to your start position, deploy the paddle and make another pass. It also allows you to dramatically shorten the turning radius of your boat so you can follow shore contour lines more tightly and work a zone more effectively. Best of all, the Drift Paddle works perfectly with your main motor giving you speed reduction so precise and effective you may not need that kicker motor at all.The Power-Pole Drift Paddle is made from UV stable material giving it long life. The paddle also flexes with the Power-Pole spike so they flow and work together perfectly. They also reduce boat rocking to give you even more stability in heavy wind. And on top of all this, it still allows you to effectively use the Power-Pole for anchoring in shallow water even with the Drift Paddle installed.For the ultimate in boat control use dual Power-Pole anchors and Drift Paddles, it?s like your whole boat evolved into a new species of predator.The Power-Pole DownriggerPower-Pole is the original shallow water anchor and has changed the world of fishing. Once again, Power-Pole is leading the way to a smarter way to fish, now in deep water. The new Power-Pole Downrigger is a simple accessory that slides onto the Power-Pole spike and lets you get your bait down to exactly where the fish are. Like an electric downrigger, the Power-Pole Downrigger lets you adjust tension on the snap release clip so when the line pops out, you?re ready to reel ?em in.The Power-Pole Downrigger allows easy access as the retracted spike puts the snap-release clip in easy reach and the anchor hydraulics let you put exactly the right amount of tension on the line and rod. Each Power-Pole Downrigger accommodates one line on the clip and if you?re using dual Power-Pole anchors with Downriggers you could be running tow lines simultaneously and at staggered line lengths.The Power-Pole anchor allows you to adjust the depth of the bait with the touch of a button and keeps it in position until you change it.There?s no need for heavy ball weights, if you want to get your bait even deeper you can simple use the right dive plug, then make depth adjustments on the fly, your Power-Pole does all the work. For even more accurate control, use the Power-Pole Downrigger with your sonar device. Watching the sonar you can raise and lower the bait as the fish appear on the screen or you can raise and lower to follow the bottom terrain.Power-Pole shallow water anchors aren?t just a great way to anchor your boat in shallow water, they?re right at home in deep water as well. With the new Downrigger accessory your Power-Pole can multi-task, so there?s no need for an additional electric downrigger and Power-Pole gives you all the downrigger depth accuracy and control you want at the touch of a button.For more information on the complete line of Power-Pole shallow water anchors and accessories, go to www.power-pole.comAbout JL Marine Systems Inc.JL Marine Systems Inc. is the Tampa, Florida-based manufacturer of the Power-Pole, a shallow water anchor system for all small skiffs, bass boats, flats boats, bay boats and more.
