One of the most common mistakes anglers
make is they don't think about spooking fish until they are actually fishing.
Long before they have made their first cast, they grab their anchor and start
their best impersonation of an Olympic shot-putter, firing their anchor into
the lake with a thunderous boom.
You will find yourself with a lot more happy endings to your angling adventures if you gradually lower your anchor into the water.
