They have a buoy-bag tied to the anchor rope. When they are fighting a fish they throw the rope over. After they land the fish they go back and retrieve the rope attached to the buoy-bag "the anchor".

They have the anchor line on a float, and cast off when hooked up. Similar to what you can do when cobia fishing from anchor.

I find the show entertaining but I CAN NOT stand the fake drag sounds when a fish bites. Grates on my nerves.
