If your in a nice sandy bottom ( as much of FL has), a fluke is the answer. a 6# fluke will hold like a 12 Shroom if it has good bottom.. I personally like the folding vinyl covered 10# anchor from Bass Pro. Stows easily , bites decent and doesn't cut up the boat ( which can be a problem with fluke anchors.)

As an aside, I like sailboaters type cam cleats for my ancors. These allow you to get off anchor with one hand/in a hurry if you need to. Just a tug up is all it takes.
