Lowes has a wide variety of concrete blocks...... :)
I never thought about that. I left 3 anchors and nylon twine on the rocky bottom already. So I don't anchor on the rocky bottom at all. I am seriously thinking about bring a concrete blocks and thin cotton twine as an anchor line. I hope the cotton twine degrades eventually just in case. Or make my own concrete mushroom (sort of) anchor???

Making a concrete anchor for a kayak can be my next project. It will be interesting...:yes:

joe,
honestly, for rocky bottom, cotton line, minnow trap snap, galvanized welded link chain with nothing attached....works like a charm!!

I was using grapling anchors.doh Even with a 20# break line used, I still couldn't bring the anchors back up.

galvanized welded link chain sounds prety good. I can use at the rock piles areas. Do you thing a 2-3 ft chain will do it? My problem is that I can buy chains from Lowes but not anchors near my home.

I use 7' of 7/16 for drifting. Hook it at the end for easy drift, hook it in the middle for more resistance. I also have a 3' piece of something pretty big (3/4 maybe) that I got at a garage sale that holds a lot better. I am always afraid of a fast holding grappling anchor with the canoe..I am afraid of swamping if I have to pull too hard. Chain alone has never caused a problem
