    10/11 Neck rd launch Guilford

    We went out this morning at 6:30 .Tried dragging tubes & worms Nada .Headed out to bouy 3 west river to meet 3 foot waves and 10 -15 mph winds . What a job trying to anchor .We moved about ten times with no togs a biting .Ended up breaking an anchor when we had to motor off the hook.Hands were cold and wet with no fish. We got the royal SKUNK today . What a difference a day makes .While Im welding the anchor up I'm adding a ring to the back side for the other rope (trip line) Does anyone know how to hook that up I never did it before.Thanks

    I don't have any anchors rigged like that (haven't needed to) but you basically attach your chain to the head of the anchor, run it along the shank, then use tie-wraps or some other means of "breakaway" to attach the chain to the end of the shank.

    This way, the chain will stay in line with the shank under normal anchoring, but if you get hung up, it will break the ties on the shank end, and then you can pull directly on the anchor head to hopefully free it.

    As described above.
    I just drilled a hole on the other end to attach the chain, then ran the chain up the shank and fastened with a single tie-wrap. Came in handy this week or would have lost my anchor and 15' chain.
    p.s. unlike me, it would be wise to have extra ty-wraps onboard. :rolleyes:

    Yea I think I'm going to try the tie wrap one.The one with a bouy and another rope seems like a pile of notted rope:banghead: With all the rods and tackle we bring there's no room for us.
