Power anchors

Discussion in 'Tackle Talk' started by LakeRaider, Dec 21, 2002.

  1. Rigging a new boat and would like to add the minn-kota deckhand electric anchor winch. Fore and aft. Any input? Should I go with the 18 or the 35? 16ft aluminum boat. LakeRaider""
     
  2. I keep checking this thread

    I'm curious too. I have an 18' CC Starcraft & would like to have a motorized anchor, especially in this 40 degree water.
     

  3. Thanks for the info.

    Told Red to get the MK 18's since its a liteweight boat. Plus they came with anchors. LakeRaider""
     
  4. Short ropes

    Looks like they only hold 60' of line....Minn Kotas. Wouldn't work in the river. I emailed them to see if they will hold more. I'll keep you posted.
     
  5. Heck Mr.Fish

    With the size of the monsters you catch you better use 55gal/ barrels full of concrete and a tug boat winch so's they don't drag ya around the river. lol Boys, I sware I seen a deep sea fishin chair in the back of that starcraft, complete with a Louisville slugger for subdoin' them biggun's! Just when ya' thought it was safe to go back in the water. :eek: LakeRaider""

    No, I keep a sharp knife.......no slugger. Ready to cut the rope when them bad boys pull you up on plane !!:D :eek:
     
  7. Here's a question

    While we're on anchors....has anyone used those anchor lifters?? They look like a beach ball and have a ring on them? You put you line thru the ring, motor the boat a little, pulling the rope up thru it...."floating" the anchor up ?? I sure would like to find an easier way to move the anchor so I could fish more spots.
    I saw one anchor made with aluminum tines that will bend before snagging up & they go into what looks like a pipe filled with lead. At $60 ea. I think I'll make my own, I just need some alum rods.
     
  8. Got message from JWA

    Quote "THANK YOU FOR YOUR EMAIL, NO YOU CAN NOT PUT ANY MORE THAN THE 60' OF ROPE ON THE SPOOL AS IT WILL GET CAUGHT UP IN THE DECKHAND,WE HAVE ONLY THAT ONE SIZE AT THIS TIME":(
