Do many people use anchors here? Was seeing some videos about people rigging up and dropping 3 lbs anchors while fishing

I don't anchor in salt water Bay fishing.

I do, however, frequently clip on to things: Docks, Buoys, other structure. If the current is too ripping to keep myself in place through my kicks, its surely too fast to anchor. So I clip off.

In Freshwater lakes I will occasionally anchor, as the only thing moving me around is the wind.

I don't anchor, but I know most of the kids are nowadays. I have not even tied off to anything in the salt either..... OK that is not true I have. The anchor would be great idea and if you have room for it or would think it would help go for it. There are all kinds out there but I think the rock sack would be a simple useful option.
Just pull up on shore grad some stones place them in your bag and anchors away my boy. Just don't forget the rope. What a Face

If you fish the lakes up north. It is nice to have a claw anchor handy when the winds pick up or your day can be shortened. I used mine a couple of years ago and it saved my day.

Instead of writing the same thing over again, I just copied Ken's.
We do the same clip thing (except I use a 30 lb retractable dog leash) and no anchor thang.

I don't anchor any more. I have found if the wind is too hard to kick against line management becomes a problem as well (wind knots). The problems just seem to compound fighting the wind.
I try to plan my routes to take advantage of the wind. Kick out against it and let it blow me home.
