Advice on Anchor Choice for Thursday Cove Anchorage, AICW Statute Mile 1132

Thursday Cove Anchorage - Click for Chartview

This neat little anchorage lies just off the Florida Keys Inside/ICW route, immediately north of Jewfish Creek. You don’t want to be caught here with fresh northerly winds, as we were one inky black night. You can’t take my word for it – it’s a really bad idea! HOWEVER, during southerlies, this is a GREAT spot that we really like!

I found here bad holding in mangrove mud mixed with leaves. Perhaps you can do better with a plow anchor.

Bottom is mostly turtle grass, which is difficult for most anchors to penetrate. I agree that this is NOT the place to be in any kind of a norther.
