Kayak anchoring is an integral part to getting on and staying on the fish. With kayak anchoring, the sky is the limit as there are several options to choose from. It can be as simple as a stake out pole to battery powered. Kayak anchoring depends on where you’re fishing, and just how you need to anchor up to stalk your fish.

Kayak Anchoring

While there are several options for your kayak angler for kayak anchoring, we’re here to make those choices easy. If you’re looking for a simple stake out pole, then we recommend YakAttack with their ParkNPole or Yak Gear’s mud stick. Both are quality stake out poles that will serve your kayak angler well. If you’re looking for something a little more substantial, then we recommend the Swivel Stick. If it’s battery powered that you’re looking for, then there’s nothing better than the Power Pole Micro.

Swivel Stick was derived from a meeting between old friends. They wanted to develop a kayak anchoring system uniquely different from what kayak anglers had traditionally known. The Swivel Stick Anchor attaches directly to the kayak, eliminating the need for an anchor trolley, and giving the angler a stable platform to fish from.

    These are all great anchoring systems for kayaks. There is one more I think you should add to the list, simply because its design is very ‘kayak friendly’ so to speak. The system I am referring to is the Bottom Buster made by Alien Labs.

    They have a two piece design so you can break it down into smaller segments and store inside the kayak when not in use. The way their anchor sleeve functions is perhaps why it is very well suited for kayaks. It’s a RAM Mount system where you just mount the rubber ball to your boat or kayak, and the anchor sleeve clamps onto this ball and can be removed at any time.

    If you visit their website (www.alienlabsusa.com) you will see exactly what I am talking about and why it would make an excellent kayak anchor.
