Anchor help

5 posts in this topic

I have a Lund Rebel 1650 that I am going to be putting an anchormate on this week, any suggestion on a good anchor to use. I have two now, but neither will hold the boat in place. One is a mushroom anchor, the other is a 12 pound 3 claw river anchor.

Danforth and richter are good. But I wonder why a 12 lb river anchor won't hold you now. Do you let enough rope out? We used to sell 9-11lb danforths for 20-24 ft cuddys.

How much rope should I be letting out? We have always had a problem with anchoring our boats, maybe we are doing something wrong.

Barb, you can try to get some anchor chain as well. If you put on a 3 to 4 foot section it will help hold the anchor at the right angle to hook up for you. I go with the Richtor anchors now. I had lost my mushroom one and bought a richtor, little more pricey, but it holds great in rivers and lakes. I think they are close to $60 at Fleet Farm.

3 Times the depth is what I use and have had good luck with.

    • dried smoked Jalepenos are called Chipotle.  
    • The Ring Bologna turn out great !! Another great spice from Curly's ! The Old Fashion franks were great in patty form without smoke and plan to give the finished product a try this weekend. Need to give his new Cajun spice a try soon.
    • Looks like you have the makings for some great spices at this rate.
    • I'm all with you until the Peanut Butter part?
    • Had to move the grill in the sun but it's running 125 with the tube. Way too many peppers in the fridge, thought I would try a small Bach. I'll let it go til dark then put em back on tomorrow.  Shooting to crumble for seasoning, any thoughts?
    • Thanks for the update O.T.C., let's hope for the best with all the rain. I haven't hit much gravel but I have been seeing a few here and there on County roads in the evenings.  Talked to my cousin yesterday, surprisingly they are on schedule for harvesting in his area which received a lot of rain through out the summer. But then again he likes to turn his fields black as soon as possible. 
    • Probably not far because his head is already up there.
    • I'll be bow hunting this spot next weekend, fri-sun and then possibly additional days depending on how things go and how much time I can get away from the wife and kids. My main stand is near a clearing that has 3 trails converging into one main trail that leads to appleville.  There is one crab apple tree at the end of the clearing exactly 20 yards from my stand.  The other apples they are eating are in the yard at the house on the property so hunting over them is off limits so I've got to hunt them in route to those trees. This photo was taken at the end of the trail that goes by my main stand putting him 20 yards broadside from my stand at about 6:30pm on the day the photo was taken.  I do have secondary stands locations to play different wind conditions and I do have a ground blind that I can set up if I need to make on the fly adjustments for wind conditions.  Hard part is this is a city hunt with an earn a buck rule so I've got to get a doe on the ground as fast as possible so that I can focus on a big boy the rest of the season.
    • any ideas on where or what to fish around there between oct 10 15?
