Re: Anchoring in lake weeds
I'm going to go out on a limb here, and ask the obvious questions... so shoot me if this is too obvious (I am not trying to bust)... But do you have enough rode out? 5 or 6:1 at least? Do you have a decent amount of chain?
On my rather rocky lake in the few places that are soft/weeds, my danforth holds fine, but I use nearly 100 feet of rode, and 10 feet of chain for 15-20 feet of water. I've not had an issue with hold since I've upped the length of my chain from 6 feet. Granted we rarely have high winds, and most of our chop is produced from antique V6 outboards by wanna-be water-drag racers.
"Rum Line" an S2 7.9 - cheap, fast, trailerable, and paid for.
