Well I was having a good day catching but then I had my first roll over. Glad I was wearing my life jacket. The water was much more shocking to me system then I would have thought on a day like today. Anyway I got 3 rods and some other gear in about 15 foot of water. I know the location pretty precisely. I tried dragging my claw anchor with no luck. Any advise for retrieving them apart from going swimming.

I wonder how a strong magnet would work? You can buy one for dragging the yard at Home Depot.

See if there's a local scuba or diving club and offer them $50 to get the stuff.

Take another rod out there with braided line and drag a bomber slab on the bottom you should be able to snag the rods. The bomber slabs are like $2 at walmart so you can take a few in case you get hung up and loose one. Sometimes with braid if you get hung up you can straighten out a hook but not always. Hope you get your rods back and sucks that you rolled over. I haven't rolled over yet but I did loose a rod over the side sadly it was in 48 ft of water at Texoma so I wasn't snagging and getting that one back.

Also invest in some rod floats. I did after I lost a rod and its the best insurance. They take some getting used to but they no longer bother me that they are there. Occaisionally the line will snag the float but its not a big deal.

Might try getting a metal stringer and opening them up and dragging.

I use a really big treble hook with a lead weight sinker at the eye for a "grapple", when needed. Treble hooks will snag anything but a fish. Heavy, non-floating line would help. Good luck!

Write it off to experience then go buy floats/tethers for your rods and tackle boxs or whatever.
I take only what I need,secure everything I take,I keep or can retrieve if need be everything I take.
Piling a bunch of junk on a yak for what if and maybe is "over thinking" and trying to appear professional to some level I heard several say as of late.

Went back out and snagged one of them today. Need a longer rope and a heavier weight to maintain better bottom contact.

Five inch flutter spoon might work, plenty of weight and easy to get loose if it snags. Glad you got some of it back. cheers

Big Diamond Jig with treble hooks, like you would use fishing for Bluefish in the ocean.
