Need some help from my friends

We went fishing today just north of the Stuart Causeway behind the Florida oceanographic society by the western manatee sign. Our anchor got hung up on something in about 5 feet of water.  We tried to get the anchor unstuck by using the boat engine and manpower. We didn't want to rip the cleat off the boat and our hands were starting to blister. I called Tow Boat US = not covered. Called the Martin County sheriff's department = not on the water today. I tied an old bait bucket to the anchor line in hopes of retrieving it next Friday. If anyone is in the vicinity and could help me out in getting my anchor back I would appreciate the help. I figure I have a 10 to 20 percent chance of seeing it again.
