I'm the happy new owner of a Tarpon 120 that I will fish most often on small rivers and lakes . I was wondering if I should run a basic anchor set up or a trolley system ? What do ya'll think ? Thanks for any help .

Jason,

Here are the pics i promised... my idea of installing right behind my seat was so that i could anchor off of either side of the yak.

BFM, Neat idea. Do you have a trolly system too and if so how does it work? Going straight across to the right or left then making the right angle down the yak, if that makes sense?

Dougg,

Haven't decided if i'm gonna do a trolly or not but i am certainly leaning in that direction just to have the ability to position myself better on the anchor.

Looks good. How many feet of line is on that reel? If it is a reel.

Thanks for the pic as BPS is having some tech diff.
