What size/ type of anchor for a 12 ft. Aluminum?

Recommended Posts

What size/ weight anchor do I need for a 12 foot aluminum boat just doing some pretty calm small lake fishing?

 

I've just never paid attention to the ones I've used in other peoples boats.

 

Thanks in advance.

Include 6ft of chain before the anchor and you'll never have to worry about it not catching...

I use a 10lb mushroom for my 14 footer, works just fine.

 

In the past I used a Javex Bottle filled with sand, tied a rope to the handle and was good to go. I only did this on small bodies of water though and don't recommend it as a main source of anchor on larger bodies of water.

Cool, thanks for the suggestions guys.

 

I guess I could always go diving in a lake looking for one too... haha.

 

Thanks again.
