The Start of Anchor 911

My obsession with anchor fishing started in the Chesapeake Bay near the James River Bridge fishing for Croaker. With less than Idea water conditions I watched as other boats anchored on a drop off reeling in fish after fish. (I mean Big Fish)

We drifted by because our anchor would not hold bottom. After about an hour of this torture I headed back to the dock, got in the truck and made the trip to a nearby West Marine. $120.00 dollars later I joined in on the catching. (Big Fish)

3 weeks later I found myself cutting the rope to this same anchor after an hour of trying to free it from a hang. Luckily this was in Lake Gaston and only about 20 Minutes from home. I tied on a drink bottle as a marker and returned the next afternoon with a contraption made from rebar with the help of a coworker. I was amazed at how little time it took to recover my anchor and Anchor 911 was born.

Fast forward 20 plus years and I am finally making my dream available for other boaters like me. My quest to accomplish this has led me on a path filled with a lot of trial and error. I have always had 4 goals in mind with making these retrieval devices.

  1. It has to be made in the USA.
  2. It has to be affordable
  3. It has to operate as simple as possible
  4. They must be made of high-quality materials.

I believe our products live up to each and every one of these goals. If you have ever lost an anchor or have fear of losing your anchor, Anchor 911 is for you. Give us a try. I am confident that you will be very satisfied. Put on Anchor 911 and enjoy catching those “Big Fish”
