    Default Poke pole?

    I'm sorting through my gear trying to figure out what to bring to Alaska, as I get on the plane on Wednesday.

    Quick question- Is there any reason for someone living near Ninilchik to bring a poke pole?

    Default don't bother

    no terrain up here that lends itself to poking, nor are there the abundance of shallow water fish big enough to bother with.
    maybe in southeast....

    Default I may get everything on the plane yet.....

    Thanks, Dave...one less thing to pack.

    A poke pole is a collapsible rod 12-18 feet long with a strong leader and baited hook at the end that you jam into holes and cracks in rock formations and reefs to get the critters that shelter there.
