Steinhatchee River in northwestern Florida
, I snagged a man killer...
Someone had put a kind of grapnel into a plastic milk crate, filled the crate with scrap metal, and then filled it with concrete.
It weighed a ton and had pointy, rusting metal hooks sticking out in all direction. A total nightmare, and there was no way I could get over the bow without scratching and dinging up the topsides and rail, not to mention the threat of lockjaw.
Luckily, a couple young guys came along in a powerboat and hoisted the whole thing aboard their boat, and untangled the mess for me (I had another anchor down, by this point.)
They disdainfully called the monster "a redneck mooring".
