I’m digging the OTW (Over the Waves) sand spike. Just ordered two but haven’t used them yet. Construction is awesome. All aluminum and 56-58” long.

I second the OTW. I dabble in sharking and you want good penetration when they hit. You can pound them in with a rubber mallet and they ain't going anywhere. Also the rod is cradled and easy to remove.

I'm looking to get a few heavy duty sand spikes for pompano fishing. I'm done with PVC. I want something reasonably tall and made out of metal. I found a really good one online a ways back but I can't find it. It had a beer holder built in.

 

My budget is around $50 per spike. Obviously when it comes to spending money, less is always more.

 

What do you guys like to use?

 

Since you said Pompano this is what I like. Fish n Mate and 1 Hurricane that is similar but not as heavy duty.

I like them because they nest for transport.

I start them, than put my full body weight at my belt buckle to sink them.

I also drilled a couple holes in them and put some HD tiewraps to keep my rods elevated.

Works for me...

Depends on the tripod, they can work very well. Sand spikes are less stable, but they can be spread out more, you can take as many or few as needed, and are much cheaper per rod. Whatever floats your canoe.

Believe the company is in Delaware. They make awesome looking surf racks too. I got mine through Tommy farmer. He says he personally uses them. Pretty sure they can be used for spin and conventional.

I found the website. I think they are only $35.

 

I'll give them a call next week to ask about shipping and if they work with spinners.

 

I like what that one guy said about them not moving once pounded in. That's exactly what I want.

 

What's up with that piece of material? Is that to clean your hands?

It’s just a rag. They come attached to each spike. Guess it’s for wiping hands but after I bait I always rinse my hands In the surf. Not sure I will leave mine on. Will at least leave it on the first time or two I use to see if I like.

Those OTW look nice . Do you guys really pound your stakes in ? I have the fish n mate and have never used the foot step . I just stick the stake in the sand and wiggle it back and forth and it sinks right up to the foot step . Takes about 15 seconds . Saw this trick on YouTube , so much easier than digging or pounding .
