I like my Water Spike. It's kind of bulky, but it's light and once you get used to using it, it holds really well. I use mine on the St. Croix and Mille Lacs and have no problems.

I agree with boilerguy, the Richtor is the best anchor I've ever used. They're spendy, but worth it. I got my at Fleet and was a little cheaper than I've seen other places.

I have a Carlson Water Spike, and a Richter anchor.The Richter will be in the boat when on the river,no question about it.And if needed, I will be buying another Richter for river use, when two anchors are necessary.

Whatever you get make sure you have a long rope - 100 feet. It also helps to attach a chaing to the anchor and then the rope.

    • When you rip up the floor, do you only need  replace the foam if it's wet? Also am I going to have to take out the consoles and windshield. I'm assuming I'll have to....Thinking of starting the project in the next month or so.
    • Not going to worry about much until later in the season, we know they can't stay crazy hot forever and slumps will happen, just as long as they are too long I will be happy. I just want them playing really well down the stretch.

    • I've said for years that he needs to wear a helmet, but it was for entirely different reasons.
    • I think that is talking about painkillers etc.      Likely he is taking stuff like statins and blood pressure meds as a minimum.  And he had some depression issues, as I recall, so perhaps something for that.     I saw a thing on TV that said it could have been a vasovagal syncope.  Basically you pass out due to stress.
