kayak Fishing Anchors & Anchoring Kits

Anchors, Anchor Kits & Anchor Trolley kits For kayak fishing

When kayak fishing it is often necessary to anchor in position or deploy a drogue to stop your kayak drifting too fast. When anchoring or using a drogue we would always recommend using an anchor trolley system.

CSG Anchor Kit, including dive reel, anchor and buoy for kayaking fishing

CSG Anchor Kit

The CSG Anchoring Kit contains the items required to anchor your kayak

including: a 1.5kg folding grapnel anchor, a divers reel complete with 80m of line, a length of floating line, a pick-up buoy and a zigzag cleat. This kit is designed to be 'quick-release' should you need to unanchor quickly. The divers reel is suspended in the water below a pick-up buoy. This is attached to the kayak via the zigzag cleat. If you need to anchor quickly you simply release the floating line from the zigzag cleat (positioned beside you) and the whole kit is left suspended from the buoy. This can then be retrieved when it is safe to do so.

PLEASE NOTE: Some people like to use a length of chain to connect the anchor to your anchor line. This is not included in this kit but can normally be sourced from a chandlers or DIY shop. We strongly recommend that when anchoring a fishing kayak, you use an Anchor trolley system such as the CSG Anchor trolley kit.

Canoe Shops Group Anchor Trolley Kit Allowing You To Deploy Your Anchor Front And Rear of Your Sit On Top Fishing Kayak

CSG Anchor Trolley Kit

An anchor trolley system is mounted on one side of your kayak and allows

your to safely deploy and retrieve your anchor rig from the cockpit of your boat, and then shuttle the anchor line forward or back to get yourself anchored from the bow or stern. This method of anchoring means that you do not need to clamber to the front or back of your kayak in order to deploy and retrieve your anchor, and reduces the risk of destabilising the kayak in swell, chop and tidal flow.

The CSG Anchor kit contains all the items required to rig a trolley kit to your kayak except for a cleat to lock the trolley kit in position. This is down to personal preference and can be purchased separately, but if you are purchasing the CSG Anchor kit, a "zig zag" cleat is provided with this.

  • 10m of Black Polypropylene Cord
  • 2x Stainless Steel Pulleys
  • 2x Pad Eyes
  • 2x short lengths of bungee cord to attach pulleys to the pad eyes - acts as a shock absorber and keeps the anchor trolley line taut
  • 1x Stainless Karabiner - to incorporate in the anchor trolley loop for the anchor line to pass through
  • 4x well-nuts - please contact us if tri-fold rivets are preferred
  • Installation Instructions
