The Stake Boat

I have seen various artificial structures on the site and multiple ways of deploying stakes, but this may be one of the most interesting designs I have seen so far. Congrats to Barry Bolding of Tennessee for his interesting and well-thought design.

The stake boat has 40 pipes that hold stakes in a 5 x 8 pattern. The stake platform will raise out of the water during travel. Once at your location, the platform can be lower to the water and the pipes may be loaded with stakes.

The pontoon allows for plenty of work area as well as storage for your stakes. The boat comes equipped with stake driving racks for your various size drivers.

I am not sure if we will see these produced and sold at your local boat store, but I bet a few clones will be showing up around various crappie lakes.

A flat is just as it sounds. This is an area of shallow water that has no defined drop into deeper water. The water depth is uniform or gets deeper very gradually. Flats can be found at the backs of all the bays, in coves within the bays and on the main lake where the flat land adjacent to the river was covered up by water when the rivers were backed up by damming.
