Bad news about the anchors. Not tripped? Or not tripped the Salar way?  Yes, same here on the mackerel. Could only find a few, just enough to last me a few hours. Dogfish all day except a small but very pretty undulate.

Started off grey and overcast.
There was a big swell running off the back of the island.
Because of the scarcity of mackerel we even took frozen with us.
The conditions were not to bad for putting the miles in so we headed to an offshore reef.

Cod and Pollock were obliging, and have to say we tried putting back as many as we could, keeping only the fish that would not go back.

I use nylon string.

As Hugh says, experiment to find out what works.

I have found that 3 turns of my string holds in any tide and needs 11 knots to get it to snap.

Just have a look around your local marina. You will see what others that have similar. Anchors. Boats. Use as a trip. I use. A single plastic. Cable tie

There are two schools of thought on tripping: (1) chain tight along the anchor shank, or (2) loose. The loose way means the boat is held with the trip thread so the link needs to be strong enough to hold the boat but weak enough to break out with a strong pull. The Salar method is the second one - this will break out even if the anchor is round a bar or pipe and can swivel, whereas the first method won't. Either way you also need to carry a quick way of over-riding the trip in case you have to anchor in an emergency and don't want to accidentally trip. I carry a link with a snap shackle at each end so I can quickly attach one end to a chain link and the other to the anchor eye.
