Manual Anchor Crank? I think....

8 posts in this topic

I have seen these on a few boats. The crank that it mounted in the back of the boat, that raises and lowers the anchor that is on the front of the boat. So you don't have to get up and pull the anchor up or put it down. Does anyone know what I am talking about, or where I can get this device?

You can get them at Fleet.

The "device" your talking about is known as an anchormate.

I had one, and didn't really care for it. Too slow, hard to crank up, but a good place to store the rope. Now I just use one of those cheapie pulley deals that I can still work from the back, only drawback is the rope has to lay on the floor. Nice thing about it, it's a lot faster, easier to let out extra rope, and if someone else is with me, they can run it from the front of the boat also.

Does it wind the rope up evenly?

don't take up catfishing. I've seen anchors that could double as a monument.

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

      Nobody needs that kind of grief.  I hope he's able to overcome that in short order.

      Yes. Casey did sell his new boat and retire from guiding, at least for a while. He has been having serious shoulder and neck problems that have interfered with his guiding abilities. Hope that he gets this problem remedied soon and is able to return to guiding! Cliff
