I second the Rickter anchor, I have the 18 for my 16.5 smoker craft and love it. I anchor in some fast current on the Illinois River and up by the dam a the Fox. It holds and you can get it back!

Thanks for the anchor advice guys.  I ordered the 25# Richter.  Not sure if the 25 is overkill for my 16.5 alumacraft or not, but I didn’t want to be undersized either.

I spent my last day of open water fishing yesterday doing a little jigging on the Fox.  In a couple hours we managed to put three walleyes in the boat, working the 11-15' area.  Chartreuse 3/8 oz jig with a 3" GULP! minnow was best, with each fish hooked by the treble on the GULP! minnow.  

I would like to thank everyone here at Lake-Link for a great year!!  The people who come here for information make this site great!!  The new friendships I've made here are priceless, and the site admin people do a great job of making coming here enjoyable!!  Be safe on the water, have a great holiday season, and I'll see you when the ice goes away in  2019.  Capt Jerry.

After losing several anchors, I too went with the Richter.  My Richter is now over 20 years old also.  Just make sure you follow the directions on putting the chain on.  Good product.

Tool,


Take a look at a Richter Anchor.  They grab great and if they get stuck you just get over the top of them and the chain slides up a bar along the anchor to be able to pull it out backwards.  I have been using them for nearly 20 years and love them.

Hey guys, looking for a bit of advice on an anchor.  Specifically for rocky area, such as in the rocky area out in front of the Depere dam.  I hate to buy a good anchor, that won’t work well in rocky conditions, or worse yet, getting in snagged and having to cut the rope.

thanks in advance.

Soup, there were a total of 6-7 boats out all day. 3 boats were trolling. Looked like 2 fir walleye and 1 for muskie. Never saw a net fly all day and talking to 2 other boats we were the only ones that landed a walleye with one other boat missing one at landing net.
