Quick release anchor ideas....
Can you describe some of your quick release anchor solutions?
Often I anchor near a current (20 feet of water), and we find that when you hook up a LARGE, they often head straight for the current. They are tough to dig out of there when you're anchored. Drifting along with the fish would be perfect. But anchoring is required to hook some of these fish, due to the presentation required.
I'd like to have an easy way to dump about 50 feet anchor rode with a float, without having a dedicated anchor for this process. I'm think of two eye splices in the rode with a 5000# stainless carabiner as a connector. It should be a quick way to hook in a float and unhook the rest of the anchor rode.
I know some of you guys have this issue when chunking offshore - how is your ground tackle configured?
