If the anchor does not come free:
♦ Tie the anchor line to a cleat and go forward slowly.
♦ If the anchor still does not come free, circle slowly and try to loosen the anchor.
Be careful to keep the line from wrapping around the propeller.
♦ Try to free the anchor from several different angles—and don't give up easily. The chain or the anchor may be hung up. Don't put the boat or passengers in danger.

These boats are exactly what the name implies. They are meant to be used for fishing. Most fishing boats are powered by outboard motors, and many also have a trolling motor mounted on the bow. Bass boats can be made of aluminium or fibreglass.
