how should I hook up my kayak anchor?

I got a kayak anchor for christmas, and I would like to know how do I hook it up? I don’t want to do the trolley style. I just want a cleat on the side of the boat around the back of the seat. My question is where do I put the anchor when I’m paddling so it doesn’t keep sliding all over in the boat? It’s the 3lb folding anchor. Is there like a clip or something I could put on to store it out of the way? Also what type of rope should I use, the deepst I’ll be fishing is probably 15 ft.

What is an ideal length of anchor line for Tampa Bay?

I have been practically washed out to the Gulf of Mexico too many times in my sea kayak and want to add an anchor. Whats a good length versus average depth for my fishing kayak?

does anyone use an anchor for a kayak?
