If you want to stay in one place, purchase a Bruce Claw anchor from AC&K, reason, it will Stick you exactly where you place the anchor! and yes, and if it's a 4.2lb Bruce claw, good luck trying to pull it out of a solid stick, aint' happening, Bruce claw is the finest design to stay put, period.
be careful using this anchor in moving water with large rocks on the bottom. Mine got wedged between rocks, it was very hard and a little dangerous to retrieve it
I haven't used it yet, but I like the weight of it, and the grabbing power it seems to have. Can't wait to try it. Fits nicely in the build a crate rod holder from ACK.
priced right, quick delivery, rig to at least 50' of small line with a small shackle and wire ties and you are as good as anchored in sand or mud. Does not hold well in shell or rocks.
