Thank you for your ideas folks. I like the scotty mounts. Seems like it would be easy to use for a multitude of mounts..... rod holder as well as anchor system. I didn't see a weight rating on the mounts but hoping for 5lbs for the anchor. In most rivers I think I'll need at least that much. I also saw the http://www.scotty.com/fishing-gear-equi ... apease.htm
, which I think I'd like to use in conjunction with the scotty anchor lock, or maybe a different lock. I like being able to extend the anchor past the side of the yak. Don't want it bumping around too much. Anyone use the trapease??
