    get one of those folding anchors. you can get them down in the mud and you wont drag your anchor around. plus they are cheaper than bell anchors. all you have to do is toss it out and back up untill she digs in.

    I like having the motor down..two reasons .. if the current is pushing you can turn the motor a little and the prop will the current holding the boat..if you break loose you may have to start the motor fast and not have to mess with dropping the motor before you hit the snag or dike that you are fishing in front of..just a thought.
