Here is a way to cover the hole you are fishing without resetting your anchor. In order to control the swing of the boat, there are several methods that can be deployed. The Ancient Boccers devised a method by which they could anchor and fish in three totally different areas without moving the anchor. The method is simple and quite useful to today's modern members, but only works where there is a current. Think of a planer board.:wink: Allow the entire anchor line out with the end secured to the bow of the boat. placing the boat over the center of the desired fishing area. To fish to the right of the area, tie a line to the anchor line at least half the length of the boat away from the bow. Run the line in the water to the stern cleat of the boat and begin tightening the line until the boat's stern moves out of line with the anchor line. The distance that the boat drifts to the left depends on the current or wind pressure and the angle created by the second line. When the angle and the distance of the drift is satisfactory, simply tie the line off to the stern cleat. If you wish to fish to the left of the central fishing area, retie the line to the starboard cleat near the stern. Safety is the key, as always. If the wind or current is too strong, there is a danger of swamping or capsizing the boat. Always keep a sharp knife handy to cut the line in case of a problem.
