How Do You Make a Fishing Pole Stake?

Fishing pole stakes are an essential tool for any angler looking to set up a successful fishing spot. A fishing pole stake is designed to hold your rod in place while you wait for a bite, and it can also help to keep your line from getting tangled or swept away by a current. To make a fishing pole stake, you will need some basic tools and supplies.

Supplies Needed:

  • PVC pipe
  • PVC glue
  • Clamps
  • Drill or jigsaw
  • Sandpaper

Step 1: Cut the PVC Pipe

Measure and mark the PVC pipe with a marker. Cut the PVC pipe into two 8-inch sections with either a drill or jigsaw. Sand down the edges of the cut pipe to make sure they are smooth.

Step 2: Drill Holes in the Pipe Pieces

Using a drill bit that is slightly larger than the clamps you plan to use, drill two holes about one inch apart into each of the pieces of PVC pipe. Make sure these holes are drilled at an angle so that when placed on the ground, they will form an “X” shape.

Step 3: Assemble the Stake Pieces Together

Place clamps in both of the holes in each piece of PVC pipe and secure them tightly with screws. Once all four pieces are securely connected, apply PVC glue on all seams where pipes overlap and let it dry completely.
