A recent birthday has resulted in my posessing a new pontoon boat. It's a Buck's Bags High Adventure 9'. Should be plenty of boat for what I want to do. I've never used or owned a pontoon before so I have a couple questions. It has an anchor system, what type and how heavy an anchor do I need? Is there a certain type of rope that is best for anchors? I'll be mainly using this for lake fishing, but I would like to take it on some mellow river floats if I get the chance. I'm already trying to figure out how I might be able to float the lower Yak around here and chase down some smallies. It's pretty flat around here, so I don't see that as an issue. Are there sections up in the canyon on the Yakima where this particular boat could handle? I'm hoping to get up to Hutchinson Lake this weekend to break it in with some bluegill fishing.
