    I have a 16 ft. aluminun boat I would like to install Minn Kota anchor mates I think their designed to work with mushroom type anchors. I would like to know do the mushroom anchors have good holding power for lake fishing. Thanks

    Mark the mushrooms aren't very good but the ones in the pictures are pretty fair at holding. I've sense moved this anchor mate to a different boat but both of them were 16 foot tracker pan fish models. I wouldn't do without it. I still pull the front one by hand but at least I don't have to reach around Sara in the back seat. I run the anchormate off of the starting battery but i always start the 40hp before I pull the back one. Make sure you put the guide roller in line with the winch.and get at least the model 25 (not the 16) I'll get the pictures in the next post.

    I had to reduce the size of the picture to post it.
