i have seen these "rods" in a few areas along the river, anyone know what they are? they seem really old. the one in the pic was sticking out of a 2ft cut bank and the round part may have been sticking out above the ground before the bank washed away. think i remember seeing some rods like these along shallow "swampy" pond in a park when i was a kid and seem to remember seeing what i think now were "turtle lines" attached to them. http://i114.photobucket.com/albums/n277/dinkbuster1/riverthing.jpg

I recognize the anchor. I believe that nearly all of them are/were manufactured in town here. Don't have a clue as to what it was once used for. Could be about anything I suppose.

The anchors themselves are typically used to hold up utility poles, but coulda been used to anchor a floating structure or something of that nature???

Get a metal rod of some sort, and twist it out...if you're gonna remove it. Hard to tell how long it is. Could be 4 or 5 feet long, could be 10. If the ground is too soft, or if it's locked into a plate, it won't budge no matter what you do. Just FYI.:big_smile:

Mike ,I have installed those anchors many times in the past. Believe me ,You will be in for work trying to get it out . ,less ya got a pair ov very long posthole diggers. They have a cone shaped plate on the bottom that is flattened out in the hole to dig into the sides. and most of them are at least 8 feet long.
