I have never built a stationary slider before. The water is 5' deep. If I drive 4x4's about 2' into the mud and sand bottom, will this be stable enough? Hope this makes sense. Also has anyone ever used steel fence posts for pilings before. They would drive into the bottom a lot easier and there is all sorts of fence hardware that you could use to mount boards on top with. Any thoughts?

you need bracing to support your verticals.

the best is two braces per upright (one towards shore, and the other towards deep water), but you can just alternate one on each vertical.

The steel sounds like a really good idea to me. the only thing is rust. It won't last very long, I think.

I am only looking to get a season out of it and the metal post idea is so it can be romoved and thrown in the bushes to store.

Local group built a flat bar by driving steel post into the lake bottom, it works fine, I'm not sure it would work for an A-frame.

If you use steel fence post, why don't you just use the galvanized stuff. It would be perfect for in-water use.
