    AnchorLift Anchor Puller Resources

    The articles in this section are presented to help you better understand our AnchorLift and Anchor Ring anchor lift products. Included are helpful instructions on how to use an anchor lift and information to help you select the best product for your style of fishing.

    Q. What size rope or anchor line will work with the AnchorLift and AnchorLift Pro?
    3/8” to 5/8” is recommended.

    Q. What materials are the AnchorLift and AnchorLift Pro constructed from?
    The AnchorLift is made from marine-grade nylon that has stainless steel reinforcements at all wear points for added durability. The AnchorLift Pro is made from high strength aluminum and has an anodized finish for corrosion resistance. Both models have stainless steel hardware.

    Q. What size buoy do I need to raise my anchor with the AnchorLift?
    A buoy’s lifting capacity should be higher than the weight of your anchor. Using a larger sized buoy is fine and will raise your anchor faster by increasing the amount of resistance to pull against.

    Q. What kind of buoy comes with my anchor puller?
    Both the AnchorLift and AnchorLift Pro can be purchased with or without buoys. The buoys we sell are the A Series buoy made by Polyform which have a limited lifetime warranty. You can go to http://www.polyformus.com for more information on the buoys.

    Q. What is the AnchorLift warranty?
    Limited lifetime warranty on both the AnchorLift body and Polyform buoy are standard.

    Q. How do I know if I need the AnchorLift or Anchor Ring anchor puller?
    The AnchorLift is designed to work with an all rope rode. The Anchor Ring is suggested to be used when you have a rode with at least 15 feet of chain.

    Q. What are the benefits of the AnchorLift Pro?
    The AnchorLift Pro is designed for heavy-duty applications and rigorous conditions. Aluminum anodized body is virtually indestructible.

    Q. Can the AnchorLift be used along with an anchor winch or windlass? Not recommended. The purpose of the AnchorLift is to do the job of a winch or windlass when they are not practical options.

    AnchorLift Disclaimer

    • Always operate vessel in accordance with Coast Guard and other applicable regulations and guidelines.
    • Use extreme caution when anchoring in moving water and when letting out and retrieving the anchor line.
    • Always keep your anchor line free of tangles and away from the propeller.
    • Do not use where loss of property or safety may be at risk.

    Anchoring your boat with the AnchorLift system

    1. Slide the AnchorLift over the end of the anchor line, threading the line under the bolt.
    2. Knot the anchor line near its end and fasten the line to your boat.
    3. Release the anchor by sliding the bolt to the up position, allowing the anchor line to slide through the AnchorLift.
    4. When the anchor and boat are in the desired position, toss the AnchorLift into the water.

    To raise your anchor

    1. With the AnchorLift on your anchor line, motor your boat forward around the anchor, taking care to keep the anchor line clear of the prop.
    2. Proceed slowly – at roughly 5 knots – until the anchor has released from the bottom, then increase speed slightly – 6 to 8 knots. Do not continue forward if the anchor does not break free.
    3. The Anchor line will slide through the AnchorLift and float the anchor to the surface.
    4. When the anchor reaches the surface, shift into neutral and pull in the slack anchor line.

    The AnchorLift was invented on the Columbia River – to meet the needs of the salmon, sturgeon and steelhead fishermen. Fishing on a big river like the Columbia requires lots of anchor line. These fishermen grew tired of pulling in their anchor line by hand and needed a better way. Ironwood Pacific Outdoors developed the AnchorLift to meet this need. The AnchorLift Pro was later designed based on requests for a more heavy duty model. Now the AnchorLift is used by anglers across the United States.

    • Salmon fisherman on the Columbia like the AnchorLift for its easy-to-use functionality, and to save time pulling in hundreds of feet of anchor line.
    • Catfish anglers in the Midwest and South like it for the quick release function when they got a runner on the line.
    • Shrimp fishers off the shores of British Columbia like to hook their shrimp pots to the AnchorLift and pull up their pots just like an anchor.
    • Anglers on the Great Lakes use the AnchorLift to retrieve their anchor and lengthy anchor lines.
    • Recreational crabbers can use the AnchorLift to pull up their crab pots quicker and easier.

    I bought my anchor puller for my charter boat. We fish in rivers a lot and pulling the anchor is tiring. This amazingly simple but extremely tough piece of equipment has saved me tons of time and money. Great product!!!!
