Deck mounting hardware is available in standard deck mounts and flip up flush mounts. Pole grippers (tower mounted) are available and are a very useful tool for the shallow water fisherman. The pole gripper allows you to get the push pole out of your hands while you’re on the poling tower, allowing you fish, provided your rod is close to you, or you have a tower mounted rod holder close by.
Selecting a Push Pole
First let’s talk about length. It is recommended that you use the longest pole you can comfortably trailer (transport) on the boat and store. Once you are on the water, the length is an advantage. When you are poling the boat in a straight line, you “walk” down the length of the pole with your hands. When you run out of pole, you pick it up and start over. For maneuvering (turning) the boat, short pushes work best. So if you have a 17′ boat, a 19′ push pole is not too long. Remember that the motor extends about 2′ past the boat.
As for the different composition of poles, as push poles get lighter and stiffer, they become more expensive. Fiberglass push pole are the strongest, most durable, and least expensive, but also the heaviest and most flexible. The graphite poles are the lightest, stiffest poles, and the most expensive, but also the most fragile. That is why the hybrid (fiberglass & graphite) is our most popular, combining the best of fiberglass, durability, with the best of graphite, being light and stiff.
All push poles carry a lifetime warranty against defects in materials and workmanship, but not against breakage. All push poles can be broken if not taken care of properly. Most poles that break are broken on the road (falling off of the boat while transporting) or at the dock, where the pole gets caught under a dock with the boat rocking. Very rarely are they broken while actually poling a boat.
Another thing to keep in mind is that unlike fishing rods, which most fishermen will have many, you will only have one push pole on your boat. So make it a good one.
Because of the length of push poles, shipping can be troublesome. However, we are able to ship push poles if they break down, or you are willing to epoxy the pole lengths together. Shipping cost should be around $50, depending on location. Please call or email for further details.
