The Squid Lightweight Boat Anchor is made with sturdy mesh and hard flukes. Fill it with rocks, gravel or sand for weight. When you're through anchoring, just empty the bag, rinse and stow. Holds up to 15 pounds of weight.
  • This lightweight innovation is easy to use and no assembly is required.
  • There's no need to lug along a heavy anchor; just use local materials to add weight.
  • The Squid is perfect for fishing kayaks, canoes, pontoon boats and other small and lightweight craft.
  • The Squid is the largest of these anchors, which include the Urchin (holds up to 11 lbs. of weight) and Shrimp (holds up to 6 lbs. of weight). Choose the size that's best for your uses.
  • The bag's pear-shaped design causes the flukes to spread when the bag is filled for bottom-grabbing traction.
  • The 10.5" flukes are made of injection-molded, fiberglass-reinforced polystyrene for long-lasting durability.
  • When the Squid is empty, you can turn it inside out and the flukes are stored safely inside the bag.
  • It holds up to 15 pounds of ballast, weighs less than 8 ounces when empty, and folds to just 12.5" x 2.5" x 2.5".
  • Anchor has a wider fluke angle to grip the bottom more aggressively.
  • All the materials are compatible with both marine and fresh water conditions.

  • Squid Lightweight Boat Anchor

    Q:

    Would this work for a 19' boat? If not do you make one bigger?

      A:

      I don't recommend this anchor at all. I tried using it with my 12 foot NRS kayak, and it just doesn't grab in anything other than weeds or very soft bottom The three prongs don't grab since they are not fixed securely to the bag. Get a small Danforth or mushroom anchor.

      A:

      THis anchor should not be used to anchor a 19' boat. Almost any current or wind would likely move the boat and drag this anchor. It works great for small inflatables and kayaks in good weather.

      A:

      This is set up for a canoe or kayak. Something where you don't want to carry a heavy metal anchor on a portage, but still might want to sit in a current below some falls to fish. Bag allows you to make an anchor with local rocks.

    Comments about Squid Lightweight Boat Anchor:

    I use the Squid on an Outcast 900 pontoon boat. I have tried several other anchors designed for pontoon boats and never found one that would stop the boat reliably in a moderate current when I had a fish on. The Squid will stop my boat in all but the fastest of currents. The design allows the plastic staves to hook the bottom and stop the boat. If you sink the anchor so it just touches the bottom you can slow your speed rather than come to a complete stop. This is great when you are setting your drift to match that of your fly.

    I like the fact that it weighs nothing when transporting the anchor, you fill it, and empty it, on the river's or lake's edge. I keep the anchor in a bag attached to my boat, so I never forget it. I highly recommend this product .

      Comments about Squid Lightweight Boat Anchor:

      After trying three different anchors, all heavy, this one outperformed all of them. Just fill the bag with rocks, gravel and sand at the river edge and attach it to your anchor line. The plastic stakes grab the bottom and holds well even in a strong current. After use, just empty the bag into the river. Simple, cheap and durable.
