Default Anchor tip that works

For years I have fought setting the anchor, pulling it up and down several times in one spot just to have it slip while catching fish lol y'all have all done this. Well I bought a 1/2 in chain 15ft long, problem solved set it 4 times yesterday first try all 4 times different fishing spots.. Now pulling that bad boy up is a different story.

Anchor ball makes ALL the difference in the world when it's time to retrieve it.

Yeah, chain is more important than the actual anchor IMO
Ditto on the anchor ball, I won't leave the dock without it now.

Chain is something that every boater for some reason skimps on. It's expensive. But if they simply bit the bullet and got more chain, they would have zero problems when they go to anchor. Most people have half the chain they need, or less!!

Anchor, chain and retrieve ball are what is required for it all as long as you are not on a wreck.
