Plug Knockers Pay For Themselves
Posted April 02 2012 - 12:28 PM
Ive pulled up Spinnerbaits,spoons,and just all sorts of bait fishing gear thats been lost by others while working to retrieve my own stuck lure.Its pretty neat because you never know what your gonna pull up. If the day is slow,ill mess around on a snag with my plug knocker to see what else I can pull up.
If nothing else,the blades on the spinnerbaits can normally be reused. If they are too tarnished,paint them...The bait fishing gear,well the hooks are normally rusted out,but you can usually get some swivels,large splitshot sinkers and bass casting sinkers out of it. The bass casting sinkers make great disposable Dropshot weights.
My personal plug knocker comes from Bass Pro Shops. Its a heavy weight and if the weight doesnt knock the lure loose,its got some chains that hang down to hopefully get into the hooks.
*NOTE* If you purchase this one linked above,the FIRST thing you should do is retie the line that goes to the retriever,its normally barely tied,and will likely get easily lost if not retied.
When Fishing,I practice C.P.R. (Catch, Photograph and Release)
Dinks are Dinks...Be easy on em, they cant help it

I have the Bill Dance model. It's literally saved me HUNDREDS of dollars.
And it's orange. I have the same brand. Inexpensive and works well.
