Cruising through the forum last night on YakAngler.com I read through a topic titled “What length stake out pole”.  There are some great post in there and some great products mentioned, a few that we have done articles on in the past.

I came across one company that I had never heard of before so I checked out their site and product.  After visiting the website of Palmetto kayak fishing I have to say that I’m pretty impressed with not only the stake out pole but the also the retail price.

While kayak fishing, one of the most frustrating situations that we kayak anglers seem to find ourselves in is dealing with is wind.   A good stakeout pole can make that situation much more tolerable.  

"Our 5' fiberglass model SOP contains over 200,000 continuous glass fibers in each pole ensuring superior strength and low weight.  The "T" style PVC handle makes it easy to use and remove.  The pole's thin profile (3/4" in outside diameter) allows for use through the scupper holes found on most sit-on-top kayaks.  The black nitrile rubber silencer keeps the SOP quiet against your kayak and the supplied 4' braided paracord leash with brass snap makes it easy to attach this SOP to an anchor trolley or pad eye on any kayak."


  • Fiberglass shaft will not rot, rust, yellow or crack
  • 2 times the strength of equivalent steel
  • Lightweight and durable
  • Very little flex
  • Designed for harsh marine environments
  • Custom braided 4 foot 550 paracord lanyard with solid brass clip
  • Retail Price:  $36.99
