I found a new pole holder that no shore fisherman should be without. Its called a sonic poleholder. Nifty little unit.
It sends off a beep and lights up when there is a bite. It runs off a 9v battery and you can adjust the sensitivity, so if your in the current just tighten the wing nut.
It comes in 2 parts. the holder is HD plastic and about 20in long, the other part is the stake that goes into the plastic part,
Its about 20in also and holds well in the mud. Its a bout $20 but if you have ever lost a nice rod & reel proped up on a forked stick
its worth it. I have 2, one for me and one for my daughter. Keeps the kids from loosing poles too. They do make attachments for boats also. I found mine in a bait shop in Grand Rapids and havent seen them around in the F-M area.They did have a small artical on it in the last catfish insider.
I just figgured i would share this with you because its another tool to help from missing a bite at night, or having that big piggie take off with your rod.

Tight lines. (BEEP!)

I'm up for that Ordie. Would that be Cabellas in the EGF?

I have an Abu with a clicker but hard to hear when fishing by the Dams. I always use a holder anyway and that would be the perfect ticket.

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
