Taco Marine’s new collapsible carbon-fiber outrigger poles will be displayed at the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show on boat brands that include Jupiter Marine, Intrepid Boats and the JL Audio SeeVee boats.

“Our carbon-fiber poles are designed to meet the demands of new fishing techniques used by highly skilled captains and fishing enthusiasts around the world seeking to get the most out of their high-performance fishing boats,” Taco Marine sportfishing product manager Jose Chao said in a statement.

“They are much stronger than traditional aluminum poles,” Chao said. “Matched with our patent-pending swivel roller design, these technical poles allow teasers, baits or lures to be trolled with the swivel mechanism naturally swinging in the direction of the line and allow a more natural action of the item being trolled.”

“The cylindrical design, brass rollers and stainless hardware provide the strength needed for today’s modern fishing techniques of pulling bait dredges through the water at higher speeds not possible with conventional outrigger systems,” Chao said. “Our 16-foot carbon-fiber poles offer dual-line capability in a collapsible system, built-in line caddy and stainless or brass hardware. All designed to maximize your bait spread and increase your odds of hooking the big ones.”
