You can buy the anchors at any pier that allows king fishing. 30 pound mono for that 4/0
Id go 20 on a 4/0 to get more capacity
How far you figure on pitchin' that anchor, Pirate? :D

The 4/0 is Talking about his fighting rod. On an anchor rod I go 25 mono all the way to my anchor
DOH! My mistake. I also lean toward more line over strength once you are safely above what you are likely to set the drag at.
use the search bar up top, there have been many discussions on pier fishing for kings, use search words like Pier, King, Kings, Anchor. Kinging.
