Do you need an anchor in a kayak?

The trick to anchoring a kayak is to secure the boat with the least amount of weight. A big, heavy anchor takes up valuable space and adds unnecessary weight. Most anglers use a grapnel anchor with four sharp prongs that fold up to fit in the kayak. In shallow water, use a stakeout pole to quickly secure the boat.

Where do you put the anchor on a kayak?

The first thing you’ll need to do is decide which way you’re going to cast your anchor. We recommend casting your anchor from either the bow or stern of your kayak, but never the side. When casted over the side, your kayak is at higher risk of flipping over with strong winds or currents.
