How to: DIY fishing anchor for your Stand UP Paddle board.

If you fish the flats on a stand up paddle board you know the most fun, but also at times frustrating part is the inability to stop efficiently when you hook a fish.

Through some trials and tribulation of buying and making different types of anchors, stake out poles and other mooring devices I find this is the most optimal answer.

For under $15.00 in parts you can get a local Walmart, it is very cheap and easy to make but also the most effective.

Once you hook up, you just use your feet to kick the anchor over. The bungee allows it ease to a stop so it won’t throw you off. The coated 5lb dumbbell will not scratch your board and pick up mud like most anchors out there.
