A few thoughts:

1) If you are in most of the central Texas lakes, if you anchor drags, you will move into shallower water and soon be at 7:1, so as long as your anchor resets, no problem.
2) If you add another 100' of rope to your rode, I do not think it would be any harder to raise your anchor than it currently is. This should get you to 5:1 in all the good fishing water.
3) If you are catfish fishing, Texas tradition demands you stay awake all night drinking Lone Star, so you will be awake even if your anchor drags.
