Hi Dig in Anchors. We have a customer with a couple of questions about your Mfg # DSMM-BK Dig In Anchor. The customer asks the following:
"What is the thickness of the material, and will it definitely fit a 2018 Merc 115Pro XS?"  Your assistance will be greatly appreciated. 
Best Regards.

Hi There, I have a customer with a few questions on Mfg # DP-8-WT.
How does the Dig In Anchor work in moving current? Will it hold?
How difficult is it to push the anchor in hard sand and oyster shell bottoms?
Thank you,
Michael Pollak, West Marine Product Advisor.
Answer: Michael, thx for the questions.
1. Our anchors work well and hold the boat in a moving current. Best system is a Fish Hunter package for both ends of the boat.
2.) Hard sand just takes a tap on the handle to set the anchor pole. Hard oyster shell bottoms take a little feel to find a good securing hole of fissure in the oyster bed. Hope that helps.

Hi, So there is a strongish current or 15 mph wind; How do I get the poles out without a huge effort?Lets say my wife is going to pull them. Likely installation is on a 22 foot pontoon boat.Thanks Dan
Answer: Dan, Get this question frequently. If the pole locks in the mount. Use the trolling motor or main motor to ease tension off the poll. It will straighen and slide up easily. Hope that helps.

To Dig in Anchors. My first trip after installing the 8ft anchor was to Indian point in the Everglades, Florida. We deployed the Dig in Anchor into 4 ft of water and cast out our lines. To our surprise, the first fish we caught was the juvenile Jew Fish Pictured above. We also caught Tarpon, Trout and Bonnet head shark. Thanks to the Dig in Anchor we are able to hold the 18ft Boston Whaler in the skinny water...... I recommend your product highly. John Goody

I am interested in this system for my Bass Tracker FishinBarge 21 pontoon. The concern I have is I need to mount both a bow mount and a stern mount as I fish a rather windy Lake Okeechobee in Florida for crappie fishing. With my pontoon the deck wall is mounted rather close to the edge all the way around, especially the back end of the boat. At the front of the boat I at least may be able to utilize one of the 3 entry gates to mount one but I don't know how to work around the issue of the back end. Can you advise me on this? I am a senior adult with a certain amount of lower back issues that I fear will seriously affect my ability to fish if I have to continue to have to lift anchors out of the water. I appreciate your feedback on this.
Answer: Steve, I looked up pictures and a video of your Sun Tracker Fishin Barge 21 pontoon. Yes the wall are very close to the edge. I think you idea is correct. You can install the mounts at the entry gates. Hope that helps
From: Dan Pagel (9/21/18)
LIKE A PHONE,I LIKE TO ASK YOU. Can i install off my motor bolts. Dan Pagel
Answer: Dan, I called your phone number. FYI... The voicemail is full and I could not leave a message. Yes, you can install the Standard Motor Mount using the motor bolts.
From: Dan Gragtmans (9/4/18)
Hello. Question for ya. I’m from southern Ontario and I hunt diver ducks in lake st Clair. I hunt out of an 18 foot pontoon boat that has a blind built on it (about 4 high off the deck). Will the pontoon package hold well in 2-3 foot waves, 15-20mph winds, in 4 feet of water? We set up our decoys, then leave the spread to pick up anchor and go retrieve the ducks. Also, we always hunt with the bow directly into the wind, would it make more sense to mount both brackets on each corner of the bow rather than one bow and one stern? Dan Gragtmans
Answer: Dan, Yes... our systems will hold your boat
From: Carl Kanas (8/15/18)
Good afternoon, I recently purchased a used bass boat that has the mount for a Dig In Shallow water anchor. However, there was no pole included with the purchase. I would like to buy either an 8 ft or 10 ft black pole to use with the mount. I tried to order it via the website but was not having any luck. Can I please get a price quote to replace the missing item. Thank you! Carl Kanas
Answer: Carl, first let me appologize for the website. Hired a company to build a new website and they screwed it up.
Congrates on your new boat. Tried to call your number (9543035597). Phone rings twice and then goes dead. Hope that helps
From: Nick Hillmer (8/16/18)
Hello, I purchased a motor mount and 6 foot anchor pole this summer. It works great. They only thing is that I would like to get a longer anchor pole for deeper water. Do you offer a 2 piece 12 foot anchor pole. It would be nice to get a 2 piece for ease of boat storage. Thanks,Nick Hillmer
Answer: Nick, thanks for the question. We do not offer a two piece anchor pole for boats. What we have found is that the joints will break. For a full sized boat the joints are just not as strong as a solid anchor pole. Hope that helps
From: Jerry Agathos (7/27/18)
Hi, can i just buy the 12 ft pole ? I live in Australia & i will pay all necessary shipping costs.
Answer: Jerry, thank you for your interest in our anchor systems. This is not an easy under taking. If you are willing to be patient and work with us, we will do our best to ship a system to Australia. Hope that helps

From: Neil Orta (7/1/18)
I have a pontoon that has no deck space bow or stern. I see you have a transom mount that may work for the stern what option would be best for the bow?
Answer: Neil, can you email me a picture or a video of our pontoon boat..?
From: Bill Hattaway (7/26/18)
I have a 2200 V Pathfinder bay boat. Could I use two transom mount poles vs transom and bow mount poles? Or, will one pole be sufficient for this size boat? Thanks, Bill
Answer: Bill, thx for the question. For your 2200 V Pathfinder bay boat we recommend a fish hunter system (2) mounts & (2) Poles.One for the bow and one for the stern. You could use two stern mounts boat that size boat will swing in the wind or stiff current. Hope that helps
From: Joe Smoak (7/23/18)

Can I buy just the pole and two mounting clips? I received the transom mount already. Also, I can’t see big pic of the camo poles. Can you send that to my email so I can see the pattern?

From: Matt Walters (5/21/18)
I need just the yellow 12’ pole. What would that cost? How much for shipping to 39740 address?
Matt Walters
Answer: Matt, Thx for the question. We have to ship thru UPS, USPS and FedEx will no ship over 8ft. The shipping for one 12 foot pole is ridiculously expensive ($179). We recommend that you purchase our 12 Ft poles thru one of our Retailers like West Marine. Then you will not pay shipping costs. Hope that helps.
From: Mark Behlok (5/8/18)
I picked up a pair of Dig In poles, the ones that come apart which would be perfect to store in my boat. Are those pretty good, the guy at West Marine said they tend to bend at the threaded pieces.. Anyways, I need to see how to order just the motor mount bracket in Black, Starboard side if possible. I only see the packages online, and I don't need the poles, just the bracket itself. Regards,Mark
Answer: Mark, glad you could get the poles and not have to pay a ridiculous shipping fee. First, the segemented anchor poles will NOT take as much bending pressure as the solid poles. Solid poles will handle over 900lbs of side force, segmented poles 300lbs. Segmented poles are more for Kayaks. Hope that helps
From: Rick Kody (5/3/18)
What do you recommend for a Yamaha 210 FSH? It has the 2 tier swim step area.
Answer: Rick, we recommend (2) 3 Inch Deck Rise mounts and your choice of pole lengths. Hope that helps
From: Jorge Rodriguez (5/22/18)
I have a Topper 1542 jon boat. Do you have a system that will work on this boat?  Jorge Rodriguez
Answer: Jorge, thx for the question. We recommend a 5 Inch Transome Mount and a 10Ft anchor pole (you pick the color) for your Topper 1542 jon boat. Hope that helps
From: Lucas Rivera (5/21/18)
I would like to purshase the trolling motor mount only, what is the cost? Thank You. Lucas Rivera
Answer: Lucas, Thx for the question. The cost for a Trolling motor mounts is $191.00. Hope that helps
From: Mark Fink (5/13/18)
Hello, Do you sell the standard motor mount for the dig in anchor by itself? If so, what is the price for the chrome and the black finished ones? The motor mount is made of aluminum? What is the internal diameter of the tube that the anchor slides into? I already have some fiberglass spikes but I do not have a mount for the boat, just been using rope tied to boat cleats. I see most of your setups are one anchor at the front and rear of the boat. Is there any reason to not put an anchor on each side of the outboard and not do one up front? This is reference to a fiberglass 18-19 foot bass boat. Thanks in advance for your help! Mark Fink
From: Sean Goff (5/7/18)
I have a 1548 gator tough G3 that I mostly use for duck hunting. I'm having a little trouble with your website. My question is do you have a camo combo set up, meaning the whole thing? Front and back mounts with the poles. And if so what is the complete price on the whole set up? Or do you have to buy everything separate? Thanks Sean Goff
Answer: Sean, great question. What we recommend for your 1548 gator tough G3 is a Standard Motor Mount, 3 Inch Deck Rise Bow Mount and (2) two 10 fott anchor poles. All in Camouflage. Hope that helps
From: Joseph Albanese (4/13/18)
I am putting together an article on shallow water anchors to appear in the June issue of On The Water (http://www.onthewater.com). Specifically the article covers alternatives to Power Pole-type anchoring systems, including Cajun anchors and stake-out pins. I would like to include your motor mount bracket in the piece, and was wondering if you could provide me with one for review. As writer, I primarily cover fishing, conservation, and DIY subjects. My works have appeared in Outdoor Life, Field & Stream, and Sport Fishing. For examples of my work please visit www.josephjalbanese.com. Thank you for your consideration. Tight Lines, Joe
Answer: Joe, thanks for contacting us. We would be honored to participate in your article. Please email me at mgrady@diginanchors.com or call me at 386.308.7745 so we can get shipping information. Hope that helps.

From: David Rowan (4/10/18)
