What sort of weight does everyone use to hold ground in a lake? When making these concrete home made anchors how are people attaching a chain to the concrete weight?

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

Check out a guy on FB, Ma CCa, I bought a lead boat weight from him, was really really good and he does differing sizes depending on you requirement.

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.
