Details:Need an easy and affordable way for shallow water anchoring? The Wang anchor system fits the bill well. Prior to the Wang, the Powerpole was one of the top options for shallow water enthusiast however, many times out of the budget of micro skiffs and kayak fisherman. With a price tag of $215 with the mounting kit, any boat to have a great alternative to the Powerpole.
Here is an excerpt from the Wang website:
The "Wang Anchor" is the latest and the greatest tool in shallow water anchoring. It was designed by a boater, for boaters, to anchor, stake out, and use as a push pole.
The Wang Anchor is made of a 3/4" solid fiberglass rod with a 45 degree, angled, rotary honed point. The grip is made from high density EVA foam for added comfort and durability. Above the cushioned grip is a custom molded "Y" shaped handle. The handle is used for getting comfortable leverage when placing the Wang Anchor into the sea bottom and it can also be used for quietly adjusting the position of your boat or kayak, fending of docks, seawalls and other structure.
The Wang Anchor is extremely durable and it is a lot easier to penetrate the bottom with it compared to a traditional push pole or stake-out pole.
The Wang Anchor comes in a standard length of 8' but it can be ordered in custom lengths at no extra charge.

I fish a mainly for Trout and Reds in and around the Spring Creek, St. Marks area. I have a 20' Key Hopper flats boat. Depending on the tides I can be in as much as 4' or 5' of water when I want to stop. I use a 10' spike and have both front and rear mounts. Works great! Big boat and the tide can really rip. I'm sold!

I saw this at the local boat show and was glanced at it out of the corner of my eye. After taking a closer look, I bought one on the spot and have been raving about it to my buddies. When we get a fish on or want to stake out a flat, it is easy to anchor off the bow. I have seen there is a transom mount, but I prefer not to drill into my pretty flats boat (dolphin).

I got this in the mail a few days ago and we used it today. I have not mounted the holder on the transom yet and I dont think I will. I anchored in about 2 feet of water off the bow and this thing held very good...

Keep it simple STUPID! Ok, so there are anchor systems that work with the touch of a button, but for simplicity I do highly recommend the wang. It is easy to store and holds my 18 foot flats boat very securely even loaded up. On micro skiffs it is pretty important to keep everything basic and this is perfect for that situation too. I don't like the transom mount though and prefer to just plug it off the bow when sight fishing and such.

The wang is what every flats fisherman should have. It is priced extremley well and operates easisy. I personally would not get the mount on the back of the boat, and instead just tie it off on the bow as needed.

I have a 16 foot Hewes . I just step on it when I want to stop the boat from the platform. It is obviously very good price and very stealthy. I wouldn't spend the money on a powerpole unless I had a bigger boat. But for my boat I want to keep everything as simple as possible.
Rating: Love It!

Love my Wang! Fits in the rod holder and keeps the boat in place securely. I mounted it off the back.
