I started fishing the reef last year. I had some pretty good luck catching sea bass while drifting in the reef area. Do you think I should try anchoring, do I need to anchor to catch the other species on the reef. How much anchor line should I use and what kind of anchor.
Would appreciate any advive.

Thanks, Treypescatorie

I think your seabass catch will increase if you anchor, or better yet grapple on to the reef.

If you do anchor, get up wind or current and make sure you drop the anchor on clean ground. That wreck will eat up your anchor.

A grapple is easy to make and I am sure a search on this site will give you some good ideas to start with.

Good Luck

I highly recommend buying the book "How To Fish Wrecks,Lumps and Rockpiles" by Capt Greg Venturo.It will teach you proper anchoring technique so you can do it with confidence on any piece.If you love bottom fishing,its a must.It costs about $20 and you can get it at Terminal Tackle in Kings Park and probably a lot of tackle shops also or write to
