Although I am fairly new to the river, I am using a 15 lb. mushroom (24 foot pontoon, catches a lot of wind) with a six foot chain (3/8) between it and the anchor line. It holds good, but I don't have the experiance to know if I will end up losing it. Chain is a must to get an anchor to hold in salt water, so that is why I am using it on the river. If your anchor is not holding, you probably need to let out more line (5-7 to 1 scope).
