lund fisherman:drift socks/anchor

5 posts in this topic

What are some set-ups best used on a lund fisherman regarding tying down an anchor/or drift sock on the bow? I don't have a cleat up front and I suppose that would be the best solution. I cannot reach the bow hook used for towing. Just curious if anyone had an alternate method before I drill some more holes.

I know most people probably use a cleat, but I still like to use the bow hook. Just be sure to clip it on before you leave the dock if it's too hard to reach. When you pull it in, leave it clipped to the bow, but be sure to secure it so it doesn't catch air when you are driving the boat.

I myself would just put in a cleat. If nothing else, you could put it on the flat part of the bow where the trolling motor mounts. To me, that would be easier and more carefree than using the front hook.

Good idea of hooking up at the dock. My luck I would forget its hooked and take off. Makes sense just to put a cleat on and be done with it.

Thanks Boys. Good fishing!

I have the strap with the float on it and I tied a carabeener to the rope then clip that to the bow hook.(that way I can hook it to the rear of the boat as well) cleats are easy to add, couple small holes washer-nut your done.
