I just saw one guy's trick for using the rear pull for release. You attach your anchor rode at the eye at the bend (rear attachement point) and then lay it along the shaft of the anchor, securing it to the end eye with a zip tie.

If the anchor gets hung up, a strong pull from above will break the zip tie and then you'll (hopefully) be able to free it, now pulling from the rear eye.

I cheaped out and bought the "high tensile steel" $7.99 version. It's uglier than a plugged toilet. (Compared to the polished stainless steel version, anyway.)

Good fishing,
