Power Pole is well known for their motorized stick pin technology for petrol-powered fishing boats. Hobie Cat's "Pro Angler" series of boats is the newest platform for a kayak-sized version of the Power Pole product line.

 Hobie Plus Power-Pole Micro Anchor Equals More Fish

OCEANSIDE, California – May 12, 2014 - It is like a fishing reel with automatic drag adjustment…a Hobie® Pro Angler with a Power-Pole "Micro® Anchor". The result is simple. The efficient, all-electric Power-Pole Micro quickly, easily and quietly anchors Hobie’s "Pro Angler 12" and "Pro Angler 14". A simple push of the button to engage the anchor combines with Hobie’s MirageDrive® pedal propulsion system to leave hands virtually free. The results? More casting, more lure time in the water and more fish.

The partnership between Hobie Cat and Power-Pole will be obvious as they are seen on waters around the world this spring and summer. Power-Pole is also an official sponsor of the 2014 Hobie Fishing World Championship. Several Hobie-specific options are available that enhance the experience. A Hobie Power-Pole Mount Kit makes it easy to attach the Anchor to the stern of the Pro Anglers. The 60 Watt low RPM, high torque electric anchor motor deploys at 1.2’ per second to approximately 7’ with optional 8.5 foot Micro Spike (varies based on spike length). The spike even has a threaded insert on top to attach accessories such as a GoPro® video camera. Anglers can run the Micro Anchor for hours using Hobie’s Power-Pole Power Kit that comes with a 12V 9A sealed gel cell battery, battery mount and a charger.

The Power-Pole Micro for a Hobie includes a wireless remote control, advanced wireless dash switch, hardware, fully adjustable mounting bracket, electrical cord/plug/battery terminals, quick release cord, free app (Android), USB Connector, and Bluetooth.

 

Since 1950, Hobie has been in the business of shaping a unique lifestyle based around fun, water, and quality products. From their world headquarters in Oceanside, California, Hobie Cat Company manufactures, distributes, and markets an impressive collection of eco-sensitive watercraft worldwide. These include an ever-expanding line of recreation and racing sailboats, pedal-driven and paddle sit-on-top recreation and fishing kayaks, inflatable kayaks, fishing boats and stand-up paddleboards plus a complementary array of parts and accessories.
