You can't beat a bruce(claw type0 anchor with a length of chain for holding power especially in soft ground like mud silt or sand.still hold in gravel but need the chain to keep the angle of pull low.
A 2kg claw anchor on eBay can be had for £12

Exactly, though I can imagine with shipping etc it would be a tad expensive. They're not that tough to make.

I have one very similar which I use for retrieving the line if a fish has gone through snags , I thought it would
Do the job for keeping me in position while
Lowering rigs etc but at chanty last week when the wind got up i was just dragging the anchor about so was no good. Def needed something heavier.

Have you thought about hanging an aluminum stick of the side of your boat? I fish mainly from my boat and I have 6 meter ones with screw points. Kind of like prodding sticks, but thicker. They keep me in place for days. I imagine with an anchor you'll muddy up your spots and create floating debris. With a stick you won't have those issuess.

I know it sounds daft but brake disc rotors from a large car make for good mud weights on a lake

You are better with a Iron or Lead mud weight rather than concrete due to gravity, I made some concrete ones in the tins and were hopeless to be honest, it all depends on venue and conditions when I fish the big lakes I was using big Bruce style anchors with a good chain attached and rope and normally 3 to 1 with the rope so say fishing 30ft depth would have 90ft+ of rope out and pull into both back and front, some venues these are not allowed and use the Lead which are work fine
