We designed our Patented eXtreme Duty™ Bow Mount Anchor Nest (US D862,356 S) to hold our 26, 32, and 40Lb Fixed Fish Fighter® Columbia River Edition Anchors. It mounts securely to the bow using the supplied hardware.  Our XD™ Anchor Nest is made out of heavy-duty aluminum alloy and will last for generations. Anchor retrieval is made easy from almost any angle with our self-centering 4″ roller design and side load rope guides, both are custom made by us out of Marine Grade King Starboard®. We went above and beyond with this XD™ model giving it specifically designed and machined outer rollers to make retrieving your buoy and anchor as smooth as possible. To top it off, we added a quick set rope cleat on the back to quickly set your anchor rope to any length you want.

We worked hard over the last 2 years designing and perfecting the best anchor nest we could possibly make. From our locking system that will hold your anchor in place while running rapids or during that long boat ride home when your pounding wave after wave. To the computer designed V roller system that was designed to help get your anchor and anchor ball out and over the bow when you retrieve it to our rope guides and self-locking rope cleat. We hope you can see that Our XD™ Bow Mount Anchor Lock is built for the hardcore fishermen and will take anything you can throw at it.

Sold Each and comes with mounting Hardware. NOTE: Will Hold Most Brands of Columbia River Style Anchors. Will not work with FFP 40 LB Folding Anchors.

    Sure there are plenty of other anchor nests in the market you can purchase, but none of them in my experience stand up to the quality, design and durability of the fish fighter anchor nest. The way the anchor locks in while sitting in the nest gives you confidence in knowing that no matter how rough of a ride you endure, your anchor will be secure. The fish fighter staff definitely had pulling the anchor in mind when they designed this product, The rope sits perfectly where it needs to and there are no sharp edges or catch points for the rope. Highly highly recommend this product, especially when it is paired with the quick mount system.

    Purched and installed this nest. Install was straight foward. Wished they would have used some bolta and nylock nuts instead of pop rivets on a plate for easy bolt hole access but was still successful. Did not use their anchor I had my own and still works due to the oversized rollers and guides. This item made well and name branding is excellent. Well done fishfighter. I am not a professional or a guide I just enjoy fishing. Proud to have your name on my boat. If I could post pictures I would. Have a good one
