Yes, I use an anchor trolly. While it might look like a mess to begin with, it is something you should take a moment and study. Tying an anchor to your boat presents safety hazards in many environments. You need to rig your anchor in a manner that you can quickly and safely release it and get your boat away from it quickly. You won't be able to do this by tying off.
Aside from the safety concerns, your catch rate for larger fish (bull reds, grouper, large snapper etc.) will be MUCH higher if you are able to quickly and easily release anchor when the bite comes on. Many times, the fish will actually pull you around. This does two things, one it allows your boat to be more easily maneuverable so you can keep your pole over the bow (rather than having to twist yourself around to follow the fish) and two, it takes some of the stress off of your drag system, decreasing the likelihood of a line break.
Please take the time to research using an anchor trolly system. Using this, in conjunction with an anchor (with a float on the bitter end of the line), will allow you to release that anchor, move freely and quickly, then return to retrieve your anchor at your convenience.
BTW, one of those times when you might need to get off your anchor quickly is when some power boater is bearing down on you quickly and simply doesn't see you. Trust me, you DON'T want to be fidgeting with your anchor when you could be making a break for safety. Ask me how I know.
