Having Bruce for Lunch?

I have this Bruce anchor chain and 1/2 line sitting in my club locker and I'm realizing it's not doing my boat or me any good sitting there.


Oh! that's not it!

No really, it's it about 25 lbs I guess. I have a Danforth that's never failed me on the Chessy but I wonder about stern anchoring for "lunch" (taking a break on the river.) Current will always have the boat nose up into it though. What I would love to do is anchor my boat up by the turnpike bridge near all the smaller outboard boats as they try for stripped bass season, which is coming up fast! Current in the Delaware up here is pretty quick 3- 5 knots, me boat is weigh a little over 10k out of the channel, it does seem slower and depths are still very good up this way.

Re: Having Bruce for Lunch?

Yup. Sailboatdata.com says the O'Day 30 weighs over 10,000#'s.
I'm still not sure what the question was though.
Do you want to catch Stripers or Shad with the other fishing boats?
There are already small Stripers (Striped Bass) in the Hudson River to the north of you.

Re: Having Bruce for Lunch?

Oh about the Bruce anchor vs the danforth which is so hard to break loose from mud. LSS yes, my boat weighs about the same as a Catalina 30. 4200 lbs of lead in the keel got some scrap value there don't I? LOL
I've not seen many people fishing here yet Caleb I would love to be out catching em too.

Re: Having Bruce for Lunch?

A YELLOW anchor, that's the trick. Bruce, Rocna, Danforth, doesn't matter, it is the silver anchors that just don't hold, the YELLOW ones are much better.

Who knew?
