Sportsman's Workbench

Readers' original ideas on shortcuts and inventions.


When chasing my favorite inshore and nearshore species, I often have to anchor up in many different depths throughout the day. In order to simplify the process, I tied loops in my anchor rope at 15-foot intervals and attached a carabiner to the bow cleat with a short length of line. Now I can simply clip off to the desired depth when I reach my favorite spot. To keep it all neat, I use an extension-cord reel — which fits nicely in my anchor locker — to wind up my anchor rope.
