I recently saw a post about this on another board (Yeah, go ahead and spank me, it was cryfish) but it really made me rethink how mine was setup very poorly at best prior to this post. Here is my post on the thread: http://www.ifish.net/board/showthread.php?t=1223313 Thanks to the OP for starting this post!!!! This really woke me up on my unreliable & past attempt at an anchor management system. Many great tips such as a little heavier chain & an extra 6' section for heavier current along with extra lengths of ropes for other depths. Here is my revised system (waiting on the chain covering from StrapWorks). 30# CR anchor, 6' 3/8 chain, 300' braided nylon rope (200'& 100' of extra rope), anchor pull & A3 ball, milk crate (with custom floatie thingies attached (a test)) and bullit float with 15' of tag line with small float at the end (will find some floating rope soon). The only weak link I see is the SS quick clip from the chain to rope.
