12# for lakes in my pontoon also use 2 8# for my pram
I use an 8# mushroom and a 6# pyramid on my pram and they both work well. I figure the Outlaw is probably easier to hold than the pram (less drag). BTW, I mostly fish at Baum Lake, which isn't really a lake.... Hat Creek and Rising River and Crystal Lake all dump into it and it goes out through a powerhouse to become the fabled Hat Creek wild trout section.Michael your anchor should work just fine. I've been using pryamid style anchors in lakes and have not been disappointed.
