A pair of Talon anchors flank Jaye’s Yamaha Sho. “They are Bluetoothed to my units, so I can actually raise and lower them from my Humminbirds,” Jaye said. “And they’re so low-profile — they are actually sticking below the motor, and they’re still 8 feet long.
He said the design of the Talons also reduces the risk of drifting in rough water. “Sometimes in rough water the other poles will bounce and drift off,” Jaye explained. “You can set these Talons to a soft bottom, an average bottom or a hard bottom. According to how you set them, every 5 seconds or 10 seconds they will reset themselves. So you don’t drift, even in rough water.”
Using two Talons means he can set the poles and not worry about his front deck moving around. “With one, you can still spin around,” he said. “The advantage of two is it keeps you dead still.”
