Dear pilotwingz,

I agree, you need a drift anchor. If you know an excavating contractor or logger they surely have a few sections of broken binder chain laying around. You can wrap the chain sections in duct tape to make it a little more quiet but I've never seen the need for that.

You don't need much, the object isn't to anchor hard it's just to slow the drift. It's also a good idea to rig the anchor line to your boat with a couple of bungee chords. That eliminates the potential of an abrupt grinding halt to your drifting boat. Sudden stops can be ugly if guys are standing up and fishing, trust me on that.
