Wassup guys I'm New to this site so please bear with me,, I just purchase  175pt pro series edition bass boat with a micro power pole,, but it doesn't hold the boat in place I was told that the boat may be to heavy for the pole any help or suggestions Will be greatly appreciated

Approximate hull weight is 1009 lbs.  Add the outboard weight, passengers, tackle, live-well water, and gasoline, and I bet you're over the 1500 lb. capacity of the micro pole.

you are absolutely over weight for that power pole.  Between boat, motor, and person in the boat you are probably already at 1500 pounds.  With a full gas tank and a full livewell you are definitely over weight not including tackle

If you are referring to a pt175 bass tracker then the pole should work. I've had one on mine for 2yrs and no problems with it holding the boat in place

So, an 8' pole goes all the down in 4' of water?

Sounds like you're anchoring very soft silt.  That won't hold anything.
