We start chatting and I introduce myself. When he finds out I am from Ontario he gets really chatty. We start walking around the booth and he shows me some adaptations he has installed on his Power Poles. A saltwater trolling clip that he transplanted from Marlin fishing in Mexico to musky fishing. That's cool.
Then he starts explaining about how he created a wind sock for the Power Pole. He describes it more like a fabric sail than a sock. The beauty of this contraption is that it can be lowered into the water to adjust the drag as the boater needs it. A light wind only needs to have this fabric down a bit. In high winds, the Pole would descend all the way to ensure maximum resistance to really slow the drift.
A look at my watch and I have to go. A quick goodbye, hand shake and I am off.
Well look what I saw in a photo from the Lake Michigan Elite Bassmaster tournament.
