On a rough weather day we would double up the anchor and set 2 lines. If the anchors hung up, then pull harder and the tynes straighten and release. rebend, reuse. The system worked awesome. Sometimes we had birds landing in the set beside us before we were finished setting up. We hunted there in the 70's and 80's but haven't been there for a long time.
    Wow that looks like a P I T A !!!!!!!!! Thank god for the invention of longline clips!!! (And yes I know longline clips were originally invented for fishing)
    I love fishing but REALLY it is just a way to pass time until hunting season!!!!
