    I have one strapped on the front rack of my ATV and its saved my *** on numerous occasions. Get stuck, pull out the winch, hook it up, stomp it in the mud and winch yourself out. Best use for them imo.

    And anchor the anchor down with a push pole shoved in the mud vertically or a 2x4” horizontally.

    I use a pvc push pole. Game wardens kept calling it a MOJO pole so I pulled out one...gasp.
    My jerk rig stake is a MOJO pole. I invited them to search my rig but I swear my MOJO is in Illinois.
    They declined searching for the MOJO because there was none. It's a law there.

    I use one, really like it, got about a five foot chain on mine then 150ft of rope, use it on lake Michigan and lake Erie, beats pulling up the 15lb river anchor all day.

    This thread inspired me to get rid of my fluke anchor that I haven't used in 2 years because it takes up too much room in the rod box and get a 10# folding grapnel anchor instead. Takes up much less space and I don't need chain on it.

    My state says "All mechanically propelled vessels, except PWC, must carry an anchor and line of sufficient weight and strength to provide the vessel with safe anchorage" or I would ditch the main anchor all together.

    Bought a 9 lb. Danforth anchor for $10 off a salvage diver on Craigslist along with 10' of chain and 100' of 3/8" nylon rope from Menards. Should do the trick. Thanks all!
