Go-Get-It Retriever

Recommended Posts

Anyone try one of these? Thoughts? The reviews on Tackle Tour were pretty good.

Never used the pole retrievers but have heard good results from guys who have.

 

I have the 44 mag lure retriever and the BPS one as a backup. If you can find one, that 44 mag is a beast at getting lures back. Paid for itself a bunch of times with the swimbaits already.

I don't have that particular brand, but I always carry a pole type lure retriever in my boat was well as one of those heavy weight hound dog types.  In different situations, one will work better than the other.  Over a season, they will pay for themselves.

I have.  Bought the longest one.  First one they sent me one of the extensions would not lock.  Called them and they were great about sending me a replacement no charge.  Fished with it for about two seasons or so.  Then on my new one one of the fasteners broke.  Did work to retrieve a couple of lures, but I think that it is a little difficult in getting the bait in the correct position to knock it lose.  I have not tried the other "pole" retrievers so I can't say that one is better than the other.  If I were going to buy a knew lure retriever today it would probably be the "plug knocker" type that you send down on the line to knock it loose or catch the hooks with chains to pull it loose.  Hope this helps.

I have the Frabill, 15 foot with a METAL COIL at the end....about $40.   Telescopes and works extremely well!  Saved several custom crankbaits and Vision 110's!!

 

Well worth the money.

I use the BPS with the chain.  I've taken an old bait caster and reeled the string up on that.  I then used an old bait casting rod and cut it off.  I put the reel on that and I have saved numerous expensive cranks!

I use the same one. Not only great for retrieving my baits when I get snagged up but also very good at getting lures others have lost in the trees  :eyebrows: Paid for itself many, many times over.

I like the Frabill because treble hooked baits you can actually snag the treble hooks and pull a bait loose because sometimes you can't just push a bait loose like if the hook is buried in a piece of wood or a rope hanging from a dock or something. I'd much rather straighten a hook than lose a bait.

I'm not sure Aaron. It's been a while since I have seen him advertising.
