Went on Saturday to Pickwick and the river was flowing hard. Watched some fellas catch some nice fish by the open gates but they were anchored up. Decided I should try this. Tied on mushroom anchor to the eye and threw in the current. It held for a minute then came loose and when it caught it whiplashed the boat and snapped the line. Lost 10 lb anchor that wasn't mine. Saw that the fellas who were fishing were using some kind of rebar or steel chunk with rebar and it held them fine. Does anybody have an inexpensive way to make this type of anchor or some other alternative. I wanta catch some tailwater smallmouth and need to figure the best way to anchor up. Thanks for any help.
