Inserting hooks or eyes into existing mortar

I've got a net over my pond to keep animals and birds out but I need to install hooks or loops at ground level to attach the netting and keep it taught. After drilling the hole, what type or mortar or glue should I use to keep it permanently in place? I'd rather drill into mortar than stone.

Here is a pic of the area. I've got to install hooks or eyes at ground level for both ponds.

any pool company can supply you w/lead shield'd anchors,,, these are normally hook points for bungees attached to pool covers,,, doubtful your mesh has strength of std pool covers but the lags/bungees will work
