Should I use an anchor when kayak fishing?

How heavy of an anchor do you need for a kayak?

What type of anchor should you choose? Most kayakers use a 1 1/2- to 3-pound folding grapnel anchor, which is easy to store. For calm lakes or rivers with little or no wind or current, a smaller anchor is generally ok, but for areas with surge, wind and current, a heavier anchor is better.

Where do you put the anchor on a kayak?

Attaching The Anchor To Your Kayak

We recommend casting your anchor from either the bow or stern of your kayak, but never the side. When casted over the side, your kayak is at higher risk of flipping over with strong winds or currents.
