Smooth, durable system for dropping and retrieving your anchor while fishing. Mounted slightly to the right and in front of the rower for easy accessibility and operation. This item is for frames with the older cast aluminum LoPro Frame Fittings.
  • Important Note when ordering: In 2014 we've changed the design of the LoPro Frame Fitting. Which Anchor System you need depends on whether you have the older or newer design.
  • The older cast aluminum LoPro Frame Fittings have "NRS" molded into the top of the LoPro. The newer hot-forged aluminum LoPros, have "NRS Forged" stamped into the top.
  • If you have older cast LoPros, this is the system you should order. If you have the newer forged LoPros, order Item # 93081.02.
  • Note: The Anchor Mast will have the newer hot-forged LoPro.
  • The Anchor Control System with the Rope Jamb Cleat is conveniently located near the rower for easy anchoring.
  • The Anchor Mast attaches to the end of the Stern Seat Bar. If you don't have a stern seat, call us for other mounting options.
  • The anchor and anchor rope are not included.
  • We recommend 3/8" polypropylene rope, Item # 45012.01.

  • NRS Raft Stern Frame Anchor System for Frames with Cast LoPros

    Q:

    I'd like to use this system with just one bar of the fishing seat attachment. Is it possible to get the stern anchor system to fit just the one side bar of the rear seat frame?

      A:

      I'm uncertain which "one bar" you are asking about. The anchor system operates independent of the angled bars that connect your rear seat to the rowing frame, so even if you only have one of those it wouldn't be a problem as long as you still have the horizontal bar that the rear seat and the rear-most vertical anchor pulley mount to. I've never seen an NRS tube frame that had only one angled bar to the rear seat though, so that makes me wonder. That anchor is heavy, might be a lot for one u-bolt. I love my anchor system though.

      A:

      The anchor system could be mounted with just one rail of the stern seat system however, I think you would possibly run into a problem with lateral movement using only one side rail. If you were in still water it would most likely work but in moving water I would not recommend it.  I have been very pleased with both the stern seat and anchor set up.

      Mike, I'm not sure I understand your question. If you are interested in just purchasing the anchor mast portion of the system, yes, you can do that. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, so we can figure this out for you.

    Q:

    I have a 14 foot Otter (142) and fish the rivers of Wyoming, Montana, Idaho and Colorado. How long should my anchor rope be?

      A:

      It depends on the depth of water you're fishing in. Anchors hold best when the rope is played out at a relatively shallow angle. For most western fishing waters a 50-75 foot rope will be fine.

      A:

      The longest dimension, from the corner of the flat back to the tip past the jamb cleat, is 9". Measured out at 90-degrees from the flat back of the bracket, the leading edge past the jamb cleat is out 7.5".

    Q:

    Have you come up with a system for your anchor to be used on rafts that have the wood side rails installed? The rails are a must have but I have heard that the anchor system is built such that you cannot install it with rails. Please advise.

    Thank you.

      A:

      Not sure what the wood side rails are? But you can get pretty creative with
      the NRS ancor system. You may just have to modify where you put the pullies
      and how you line it up with the gator jaw and the stern pully. I attached
      in 2 spots that were wood instead of attaching to the tube frame.

      A:

      Hi Jim, yes there is some interference with Side Rail Racks on that right side. Obviously you can't have a Rack resting on the footbar where the Remote Bracket w/ Jam Cleat is attached. On back right, the rope will slide along the top of a Rack. You can raise that rear Intermediate Pulley by putting some washers under it. The only ways to avoid the rope on top of the Rack are to just not use a rack there, or order custom rack supports that move the board further into the cockpit, so the rope can slide along the outside of it. Give us a call, 800.635.5202, if that works for you.

      A:

      It might be possible to cut/notch out the wood side rails for the anchor components depending on how thick the wood side rails are, the first assembly and second pulley have a fairly low profile and sit on cross bars.

  • NRS Raft Stern Frame Anchor System for Frames with Cast LoPros

    Q:

    I have one of your frames for fishing on my 14' aire. On that, i have your anchor system. When using the system, when you pull-up and lock/cleat the anchor, normal drifting causes the anchor to bounce and rub against the raft. I have spoke to many that have the same issue. This creates wear and issues. Any solutions?

      I had the same issue on a NRS Otter. Got a 6" longer frame and that fixed it. Only had to swap out the side tubes that rest on the raft.

      A:

      It sounds like the bar that the anchor mast is attached to isn't sitting far enough back on the rear tube panel to let the anchor extend out as far as it should. I'll drop you an email and we'll get started on figuring out how we can help.

      Yes, I use a exercise kettle ball as an anchor which has a protective
      coating & I try to make sure the frame sits back on the raft to give the
      anchor clearance.

      A:

      I don't think there is a lot you can do. You most likely have the large
      tube raft by aire. If you make the arm any longer the stress on the arm
      would be greater. Mine is on a NRS otter 16 which also has larger tubes, I
      just went to a lighter rubber coated anchor which works fine but it does
      still bang against the tube once in a while. Doesn't seem to be any excess
      wear.

      David,
      I had a similar problem with my 14' raft. What I ended up doing waspurchasing longer side rails from NRS. The standard frame has 68"bars. I had room on my raft to go to 82" bars which extended the back seat and anchor far enough back to keep it from rubbing the boat. Nota great solution but it worked well for me.

      I believe you can. But I don't think NRS sells those pulleys individually. But call a thier 800 # and ask a cust serv rep. It would be sim to the side pulley. But it might require a Dif minting bracket

      I did put a modified ancor system on my raft, so I could control the ancor
      from my rowing seat. I do not have a NRS rowing frame so I got kind of
      creative with my existing rear pasenger seat. I just purchased your kit and
      used some of the parts and mounted them to my Northern lights frame, by
      drilling some holes in the frame and mounting the gator jaw at my feet on
      the hard plywood floor.
      Sounds like this guy might get by with your weekend warior ancor cleat, not
      sure.
      I could seend you some pictures if you think it would help
