Now that's what I'm talking about A friend of mine caught a 31 Pounder nearly 20 years ago and that came up like a Tesco Skate, but looked terrific up close and tasted even better

Andy I use a plough anchor and had to pull it up with 30 meters of rope just off Dartmouth a couple of weeks back.

It was not easy with only one person on board!

I had a healthy dose of seasickness as well by the time I got it back in.

I find rapping the rope around the prop with the engine in gear and running a useful trick for winding a rope in

I usually anchor in the 80 to 120 foot range. Occasionally shallower, but usually that range. It's not as bad as it seems (well, it isn't with my ground tackle.)

Pure brut force. A bow roller helps, and a decent pair of gloves.
