KAYAK FISHING ACCESSORIES
THE CAPTDICK STAKEOUTPOLE IS FEATURED IN THE APRIL/MAY 2006 ISSUE OF THE "SHALLOW WATER ANGLER" MAGAZINE. IN THE ARTICLE "KAYAKING A SIGHT BIT BETTER" AUTHOR AND KAYAK ANGLER, LARRY KINDER, STATES "CAPTDICK ENTERPRISES OFFERS A STAKEOUTPOLE THAT HAS WORKED LIKE A CHARM FOR ME. ON WINDY DAYS, A KAYAK WILL ZIP ALONG AT A PRETTY GOOD CLIP. DRAGGING A TRADITIONAL ANCHOR WILL EITHER STOP YOU COMPLETELY OR TEAR UP THE SEAGRASS ON SHALLOW BOTTOM AND MAKE TOO MUCH NOISE. A STAKEOUTPOLE IS A BETTER METHOD."
The StakeOutPole has a 6061- T6 machined aluminum tip and a rigid foam grip with an adjustable length lanyard and Stainless Spring Clip to secure to your kayak. The fiberglass StakeOutPole is 1 inch in diameter with 1/8 inch wall thickness for durability. The length is 5 feet. The StakeOutPole used in conjunction with our Anchor Trolley Kit allows you to position your kayak for perfect lure or bait presentation. The StakeOutPole may also be used instead of an anchor to secure your kayak through a scupper hole. This is a much quicker and quieter operation than using a noisy anchor. The StakeOutPole will increase your kayak fishing success and enjoyment. Be sure to check out our other kayak fishing accessories.

CaptDick Enterprises donated and sent a StakeOutPole and Anchor Trolley Kit to TexasKayakFisherman.com for their Fall Expo held outside Houston on 9-25-04. The products were used as prizes for the fishing tournament held in conjunction with the Expo. TKF forum member "Flatfishcharlie" won the tournament and the SOP-1 and ATK-1. "Flatfishcharlie" quickly installed the Anchor Trolley Kit on his blue WS T140 and posted pictures of his newly rigged yak on the TKF site the next day. He did a very good job with the rigging as the shown in the pictures.
I checked my email this morning and had the following report from Christmas Bay by "Flatfishcharlie".
Needless to say I was thrilled with "Flatfishcharlies" report and the pictures showing the CaptDick Enterprises StakeOutPole taken by TKF forum member "Mrs.Backlasher".
The StakeOutPole can be used with the ATK-1 Anchor Trolley Kit to position your kayak for the best bait/lure presentation or through a scupper hole to hold position.

Subject: another product review
I fished a little flounder tournament this weekend. I used the Stakeoutpole, and I really put it through a workout. The current was running strong, and the wind was blowing 15 to 20 for most of the day. I mainly fished water 4 feet and less, and the Stakeoutpole worked great. I fished over sand, mud, and rocks. It held me everywhere I went.
The next morning I paddled up the Intracoastal canal (the wind was still blowing) I went a mile or two upwind and set up a drift. All I had with me was my rod, my paddle, and my Stakeoutpole. about halfway back I hooked this 27 1/4 inch redfish in less than 1 foot of water along the shoreline. When I set the hook, the fish took off like a rocket. It headed straight for the channel. There was a huge barge coming and I feared the worst. I saw the stakeoutpole and immediately slipped it through the scupper hole before the water was too deep. It hit bottom and held true, I fought the fish for several minutes, landed it and headed back in.
This is really a nice product. It is so solid that once I drop it, I don't worry about what it hits, because I know it is going to hold.
Thanks again , FFC
