When choosing your pontoon anchor you must think of the size and weight of your boat. You also must think about where you will be boating the most. If you boat in a lake with a sandy bottom you may want to buy a fluke anchor or a danforth as these work best in this area. However if you boat mostly in a rocky type area you would probably want to buy a claw or hook anchor.

When you are buying your anchor for your pontoon it is also important to think about how much you will be using your anchor and for how long. This also affects your choice of anchor between perhaps a smaller anchor to a large anchor. Overall the best pontoon anchor depends on where you will be boating and how long you plan to anchor. If you plan to anchor for a long time and are boating in a sand area the best anchor of choice would be the danforth, fortress or a fluke anchor. It is also important to use a lot of chain. If you were to be boating in a mud bottom area these anchors would also work. However if you were to be boating in a rocky bottom area the best anchor of choice would be the hook anchor
