    Water levels change frequently, even on framiler runs. When in doubt beach the boat and take a walk.

If you cannor find a solid object, use another vehicle with a trailer hitch.

    A NON stretching rope is needed so there will NOT be a rubber band effect that rebounds the anchor towards the vehicle(s).

    A pry bar will not work because it is steel and will stick to the magnet and will not separate the anchor far enough from the magnet anyway.
    This guy is dangerous smart.

    My vote still goes for betting guys at the bar...................
    A creek and a couple hours are all the medicine most of us really need!
