Seen a guy in need of these on here and hope it helps
I think I got enough scrap metal around to make one or two of those things. lOL Thanks for sharing, especially as a picture is worth a thousand words.
How much does your anchor weigh? Does it hold in fairly swift current? I like the break-away aspect.
My version... (lead filled)
Sorry for the delay:crazy:
As long as there is something on the bottom to hang on they will hold they work pretty well also in a soft muddy bottom. The weight of this anchor is at most 15lbs. We tried all diffrent types of string,small rope to tie the chain to the top of the anchor and found that the zip ties work best and last longer. You can go to a small twine but if it don't break just get straight over it and tie to the cleat and use the boat to purswade(sp) it some. Use re-bar for the claw and most of the time they can be bent. Heck you could even sharpen them and fish some big baits LOL. As for current, they held my boat behind Wheeler dam in the tailrace w/ a 54 pulling against it LOL These 2 I have here were made from a $300 a piece chevrolet axle that went bad
Im gonna build a couple this weekend.
Here is my version of the anchor.
Its a window weight welded to a piece of pipe with 1/2 " holes drilled for the rerod.
The end of the pipe is welded shut with a fender washer and an eye bolt allowed to turn. I'm not sure the turning eye bolt is such a good idea because by the time it needs to turn it will probably be stuck
Well I hope its here
have a good one
I think I have all the stuff around to make me a coupla those. pretty cool, thanks for sharing guys!:cool2:
When i fish an area that there is a good probability of loosing and anchor, i use as old rotor. Most oll brake places have tons of them laying around. If you loose it, you have not lost much. You can easily bolt rebar to the holes in the rotor.
