Lund Pro-V anchor method

3 posts in this topic

I bought a 94 Pro-V, 18 ft with a 85hp tiller. Don't always like the anchor rope on the floor. Anybody use an electric or manual anchor winch? If so, how do you mount it i.e. the bow has an electric trolling motor, so not much room there. I'd like to have it go off the bow so the boat points into the wind.

I don't have one and won't ever have one. You are too limited on how to anchor. Plus I don't feel that they have enough line on them for all conditions. Also you can't put on all types of anchors I don't believe. But if you have a bad back or something like that then they are probably ok.

Buy a plastic laundry basket and coil your anchor line into it. Color match the basket to your boat if you like.

      Are walleyes even native to vermilion? Pretty much every lake in northeast Minnesota had walleyes introduced to them in the last 50 to 100 years. If walleyes weren't native to vermilion, saugers certainly wouldn't have been native either. Sauger numbers seem to shrink the farther east each lake gets from Rainy Lake.

      So it was a legit test then. Yum maple syrup nothing better! Stay safe if you venture out. Things are getting sketchy.

      What are you using the rod for?  Bass if so what lures are you going to be using, the reason I ask is that if you're using a Jig you're going to want to up your line weight to something like 17#.  You mentioned that you're new to baitcasting, a couple of tricks I used when I was first learning to cast to help manage backlashes, is set the tensioner knob so the lure just pulls out the line, then make a long cast and pull off another 20-30' of line from the reel, place a piece of electrical tape across the spool and reel the line back in. Now the backlash will only go as deep as the tape.
