Is it hard to get them out in high winds?I understand. We hunt off a rocky point and put out 2 strings. One string crosses the underwater point which is very rocky. We keep one end with the anchor on it in the boat, and drive into the wind to where we want that anchor to be, and drop it. We then motor to the other end, and move that end a little ways to the positon we want without dragging the first anchor we dropped. Finally we attach the second anchor when positioned. Sometimes we can drag the achor through the rocks when picking up, but other times it gets stuck and we have to motor to where it is, and pull straight up. We use steel cable for the main line, and use 3' drop lines of parachute cord. The cable sinks below below the depth of the prop on our motor, and deeper then a swimming dog. This has eliminated all kinds of problems we had years ago when we used parachute cord for the main lines.
Eh, most guys use larger stuff diamond braid from place like decoy rigs or doctari.Would the tar 120 work
