Is the "white mouse" occurring on 1) the pick-up/original lift, or is it on 2) the forward stroke of your delivery after the anchor is set?
If 1) then you need to apply a bit more of a vertical or "shot-gun" lift to break the surface tension. The spiral or snake should be air-born.
If 2) you are probably waiting too long before you deliver the forward stroke. The anchor should barely "kiss" the water before you start your delivery.
Tight lines - tyler.
