Re: Anchoring in lake weeds

Interesting - when I tried it, my Manson Supreme would not hold in weeds, nor would my CQR. The other two anchors I had on board were a 150lb Fisherman and an aluminum Fortress. I was sure the Fisherman would hold but since it is a pain to haul out and assemble (really bought for super heavy wind use), I tried my Fortress and it held. Maybe the difference here is how much chain you have. My rode is all chain and I made sure I had plenty scope. Anyway, anchoring seems to be like religion and politics. I am sure before long you will have seen every possible combination suggested. It may be best to see if you can borrow different types of anchors, make sure you have enough chain scope and try them all out to see what works best for your boat and situation.
