The Anchorman Wreck Anchors are not made from recycled rebar, they have a simple design and made from a durable material. The material helps eliminate anchor loss. These anchors are low maintenance and require only a can of black spray paint. They are perfect anchors for any size boat and will grab any bottom wreck/structure. These anchors are used by both everyday fishermen and charter boat captains.

Works great, even with anchor ball
I attached chain to top and zip tied bottom. Kept 30’ center console in place, even on windy days. Worked fine on hard bottom, which was my concern before purchase.
ProsTop and bottom attachment loops. Works with anchor ball.

Wreck anchor
I have a wreck that is small but holds a lot of fish. Bought this anchor to hold tight over the wreck. First time out grappled the wreck it was nonstop until I ran out of bait. Conventional anchoring I would drift on and of of the wreck. Come time to leave anchor released first try.
ProsVery well made.
ConsSome typ of permanent cap on anchor tips to pretect the boat would be nice. May not be practical though.

The Best Wreck Anchor I ever Used
I used the anchorman anchor today without a chain and made 5 drops. My old re- bar could never hold !
ProsNever need a chain which is the main reason for losing an anchor

You won't be disappointed!
I have used both the 12 lb. and 18 lb. anchors made by the Anchorman. Simply put, I have no need to use anything else when trying to stay tight to a piece. These things are solid, no problem holding a 45 ft. boat in moderate seas. Not to mention, they are easy as can be to pull, which makes jumping from spot to spot that much easier. If you are going to buy a wreck anchor, just buy one of these depending on your boat size and don't worry about losing anchors or bending out some cheap rebar imitation. One and done.
ProsEasy to pull Solid welded construction Wont bend under normal pressure Feel comfortable throwing on some sticky stuff

These easiest and simplest of wreck anchors
I've been using my anchorman wreck anchor for the last 3 years and time and time again I'm impressed by the release method of this anchor. The strength it's its hold. I've been lucky enough not to have lost one but if I do I would purchase another ASAP. Great anchor. And a must for seabass and toggers.

These anchors Rock
I am a Captain of a charter boat out of Belmar NJ . I use this Anchor for most of my wreck and Rock rock fishing. I have a 35 ft donnell and this anchor holds it even in the roughest of seas. I fish some real sticky stuff and never had the metal fail.... when i first bought this anchor i bought 2 expecting to destroy it fairly quickly w the amount of wreck fishing i do. well i still have the other one brand new in the locker on boat....

Is a chain reccomended? Would a chain make it more prone to hanging up? Thanks
1 Answers
For a wreck anchor you can tie direct to the anchor. Most people zip tie the line onto the shank of the anchor to create a release system when pulling the anchor up from the wreck. The chain is not needed.

Do the tines easily bend when up lifting the anchor, and can I use regular pull tight plastic ties
1 Answers
I went and checked out this anchor and I do not believe they would bend easily. Regular zip ties would work as a release for this anchor.

This past week I joined Patrick Sebile and a few friends to fish with Captain Tim Simos in the swirling rips of the Fort Pierce, Florida Power Plant to try for tarpon up top. Anyone who's fished for tarpon understands it's a battle... Read More
