  • For rivers and mud-bottom lakes
  • Ideal for pontoon and bass boats
  • Cast iron with vinyl coating
The Bass Pro Shops River Anchor is designed especially for rivers and mud bottom lakes. The River Anchor is ideal for pontoon and bass boats, and its cast iron construction with a vinyl coating ensures it withstands the harsh marine environment. Provides a hold, even on windy days.
Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 30 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Holds in the wind If you are in the wind on the lakes or rivers in Oklahoma you know how hard it is to anchor to fish & not be blown off your spot. This anchor digs into the bottom to hold you. When you want to leave they still pull up easy. Great product and good price. October 16, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect I bought a 2013 Panfish 16 and added these anchors on along with Worth original anchormates totally perfect May 29, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by River anchor Like vinyl Coating - helps keep crud & mud out of boat. Wish the coating was red other than that perfect, better hold than a mushroom - great stern "lunch hook" September 19, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good anchor I live & fish on Lake Barkley, a very big TVA lake formed by daming the Cumberland river. The Lake has a pretty good current & mostly a soft muddy bottom. This anchor works very well for these conditions & will hold my 18 foot aluminum fishing boat in most all conditions. I had to buy a new one due to losing my old one with a broken shackel.

Details: 
I fish the St Lawrence River with fast current and rocky shoals and have lost anchors in the past because they wedge up in rocks and you can't break them free. I am planning to fish around rock jettys at Panama City and I'm worried about hanging this river anchor up there as well. Anybody had any experience with these anchors in rocky conditions?

I fish lakes and rivers from mud to hard marl and or gravel. My present anchors - full mushroom - don't hold on drop offs or in windy conditions even with a good length of rope out.

A: 
I have the 18 - 20 lb one for a 2400lb. 18' fiberglass bowrider. I called the manufacturer and they told me that this one although heavier, is only an inch or so bigger in diameter than the small one. I was concerned about storage space, and since it was not much bigger I went with 18 - 20.

A: 
I have a 20lb anchor for the bow and keep a 15lb anchor for the stern. I'm sure you could use 20lb anchors for both, but I initially had th 15lb anchor and then bought the 20lb anchor. My boat is a 16' Lowe A160S and the anchors work well in Washington State where my son and I fish for trout in water of appx. 20-25' and soft bottoms.

A: 
I have the same boat and have found that if you want to anchor and fish in windy conditions you will need 20lb anchors fore and aft to hold the boat. This is because the boat sits high in the water and has a lot of the hull exposed to the wind. Be sure to let out a lot of anchor rope to reduce the angle of the rope as this helps the anchors to hold better.

A: 
Only advice I can give is make sure you have enough slack out so you are not on top of your anchor. I have used this anchor for three years now and rarely have problems holding unless in extreme conditions. I have even pulled up 5-10lbs of mud on my anchor numerous times after unachoring.

Details: 
I have a fluke type anchor now with four feet of chain and that thing does not work worth two cents. Tried to anchor yesterday over a spot hole along with several other boats in strong current. Anchor would not catch, slid back into another boat caused him to come unstuck and run into another boat, it was terrible.

A: 
These anchors work well with a soft bottom and will hold you in a strong current. Get one heavy enough for your boat. My 18 ft. aluminum boat requires a 20 lb. anchor. I also have an electric anchor winch which is a must for me since I anchor in fairly deep water at times.

A: 
Sorry about your collision, but I don't see why this anchor wouldn't work inshore. I have used this anchor on flats off the ICW in NC and in the Roanoke River and never had problems holding. If you fish windy or strong current areas I would get the heaviest anchor you can get away with.
