Hi Folks...

How strong are these 16 foot cane poles, they seem awfully flimsy. Is it necessary to wrap the line around the pole from butt to tip.

I have seen some videos where guys just run the line through the tip and use their left hand (if they are right handed) to control the line. 

I'm curious as to how you guys/gals set uppoles and what experiences  you have had with various techniques.

If you are Dapping in heavy cover are these graphite poles strong enough to lift fish out?

Thank you for any advice.

Do they make Mosquito hooks with as thin a gauge as Aberdeens?

Owner Mosquito hooks are great for panfish. I use sizes 10-12-14 . The hooks are single wire and  are circle like. I find most hooks sets are in the corner of the mouth or in the nose. They run about 12 for $2.59

Mosquito hook?

Used dollar store hot dogs last Friday for Bluegill. Stopped counting at 50+ in 2 hours. Was using a 270 cm ( about 9 feet) Shimotsuke Kosasa telescopic rod , 2# test, no float or line indicator and an Owner #10 Mosquito hook. Most fish were in the 5-8 inch range. Just an amazing day. JDA

Hey everyone I just got a 16 foot telescoping wonderpole! I dont have any prior experience with a cane pole. Ive heard different ways on how to tie the line to it. Could you guys give me some suggestions? thanks!

Deep-hooked bluegills can be saved using this tool - it is the best method short of cutting your line immediately (which I recommend to save trophy gills if you have any trouble - cut the line!) Fish Saver Hook Remover

I use this when fishing the cane pole and when casting. It is made of nylon so it won't damage fine leader line - won't bend then hook either!

Simple to use - just remember:

  1. #1 keep your line tight! Very important Use the bend of your cane pole or rod to keep tension on the line
  2. Slip notch onto line (some people wrap line around 1 time here)
  3. Slide tool down to hook
  4. Bump + 1/2 turn

That's it. Works on most hooks sizes 8 - 16.

This is the tool that they stopped making and it is one of a few things I can not leave the house without. Rescues 99% + deep-hooked fish. The tiny silver dollar-sized fish are tough to save, this accounts for some mortality as these tiny fish go into shock much easier and have smaller gills, mouths etc. more apt to be mortally wounded.
