not positive but almost looks like a tree (small tree) planter. step on the wings like a shovel, pull out the dirt plug, drop sapling in hole?

Since it came with a boat, it must be a crawfish management tool -- in flooded fields, it makes starter holes to begin, then retrieves the 'dads later....

Not sure why it was on a boat, but I use mine to change the hole location on the green when playing golf. I have not 2 putted since I bought mine.

The top wings are built just like a shovel, and look to be made to use your foot to push into the ground. The bottom has dried mud/clay on it. Not dark marshy mud but light tan colored. The hole is probably 2-3 inches wide. Whole thing is probably 4 foot tall. Some tool to punch a cylindrical hole in the ground but Iím stumped to why it was in the storage compartment of a bass boat.

And for the record, I know itís not a henway! Just to get that over with

It's a bulb planter but tradtiger might be on to a better alternate use.

Most likely used to help retrieve lures hung in trees and on docks. Slide the string through the gap on the bottom and you a tool to reach out and bump those crankbaits loose with. This would be my guess why its in a bass boat. Lure retriever

Itís a crawfish transplanter. Youíve heard of reforestation. Ya plant new trees after harvesting the old. Well this is the same principle, but with mud bugs.

You know i thought this exact thing trying to find a use, but it didnít seem too practical. Seems much easier to use your rod or hands but...Maybe Iíve just became good at removing lures from various objects! I May just have to call the guy and ask him what the heck he used it for.

Bulb planter

He knew his wife had plans for him to spend the day working in the yard planting flowers so he hid the tool in the boat. That being the only way he could guarantee she would not find it and recall him from his fishing trip

Think weíve come to the right conclusion, He probably used it to tie off to on banks where there wasnít trees around. Push it in the ground and tie your rope off to it.
