Manual Anchor Crank? I think....

Recommended Posts

Alan

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?

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.

      @leech~~ I believe the permit does require those houses to be moved out of the contest area.  Not necessarily kicked off the lake. That’s what permits are for, eh?  Looks like a great day for you two - congrats!  Might’ve been the lake, the spot or the fisher.  But I’ll go with the lake too.

      Anyone come up with a good way to store the dinette table when fishing? My IC has two holes under the dinette and I put it outside to fish but it is sooooo cold when I turn it into a bed to go to sleep. Thinking of a bracket to hang it inside but I don’t really want to block a window? Any ideas? What do you guys do?

      Went by there today and noticed a few house setup in the contest area.  What happens to them next weekend? They are told to move or get kicked off a public lake? Should have gone to a different lake there Wanderer. Just saying. My son and I today.

      There have been signs there for a long time,   maybe 30 years?
    • Spartacus218er
      Good for him making those signs I enjoy his views in a nutshell!

      Access is in good shape at Hole in the Day.  Ice is in good shape and travels MUCH easier than last year.  But that was due to slush getting rutted and refrozen.  These warm temps might play that way again.  But for now all is well. Fishing though... the evening walleye bite was short like usual but finicky for us.  1 - 14 inch eye iced and one other lost.  Set line and shiner was responsible for the 14.  The hooked and lost fish was on a spoon with minnow head but I had to let it hang still for the commitment.  I had several other lookers but they just wouldn’t eat it.  Two lines became one but no bump!  Nice day to be on the lake.
