I use your basic 5 pound retractable claw anchor on my 9 ft pontoon. It's ok as long as it doesn't get too windy. I think this year i will install a 2 inch thick PVC pipe along the one side and run an extra anchor off the front. It can be tough fishing chironomids when you keep spinning in the wind.:p

Finder:)

I like the mushroom anchors, although being a cheap SOB I actually use small cut down axle shaft and a brake drum mounted on it. Hey it works :)

Well, I had two mushroom anchors, until a stump or something decided not to give one back to me :(

I just finished spraying a 1" round piece of plate with rubberized undercoating, this will be used for one anchor, the other mushroom still exists and will be the other.

Question, how many people use chain and rope, or just rope?

On the lakes I haven't bothered to use any chain. My boat is not that big so haven't had any problems.

How bout the float tubers out there? What do you use? I have an anchor bag made by Remmington. Just add rocks and voila, instant anchor. Haven't used it yet, but I am sure it will work fine.

Just wondering what some of the other float tubers use, if anything at all?

Anchor

I use a 2 pound sinker (ball) for an anchor. Works great and not to heavy. I have it attached to some floating marine rope and put it all in one of my side pockets on my utube.

It's all good

Sounds like whatever you have is the ticket.
Just remember to get one that will securely ancor your boat at whatever depth you may be fishing, in whatever wind you can handle.
There is nothing worse than watching the guy next to you slay them because he is sitting still, while you get squat swinging in the breeze.
Not that this has ever happened to me. :)
