Question

A metal tube quite long and thin

My function seems surreal

Along my body coming in

I'm bringing quite a reel

Just cast me out into the waves

And leave me standing tall

I'll bring in catches that you crave

Unless I'm foiled by squalls

To find the perfect spot, explore

Shun ghosts, avoid the snow

It's best if you can monitor

What's going on below

I'll try to grab you with a hook

And lines that hold you tight

Designed to draw a longing look

Be careful should you bite

like the riddle, love the title

carrabeaner?

Probably not. Suspect will have to readjust my direction before I can fully tune in to this one.

Once I saw your answer to the army commander riddle, I realized how full of clues a fishing pole could be. Not a carrabeaner though.

I thought of an oil drill?, but not sure it fits every line.
Fits pretty well, except for the last stanza.

Chicory got this one, although the commentary on plainglazed's first answer makes me suspect that he might have known it all along.

a radio antenna
Chicory's is the one I had in mind; it fits a little better with the "reel", "snow", and "ghosts".
