You can put it on one of those retractable dog leash's if you wanna be fancy! LOL


Heck, I thought, breaking a rod and using a good reel, was Fancy. LOL. A $9 leash seems basic. And more compact. I like your adding key ring idea.

I have a telescoping pole with a heavy wire spiral that works for me. I have used just weights with a swivel to hook on your line and have a "birddog" that I have used. My advise is that if you fish crankbaits get a lure retriever tat works and you will be money ahead and catch more fish because you will throw it where the fish live!

yea, it pretty much turns into something like the daiwa plug knocker after you add the chains and key ring. Ive heard people using the busted rod too. Didnt end up putting mine on a dog leash when i put it together.....so its still just on a marker buoy...but i really do need to do the dog leash deal with it

Great advice! thumb

I use the Jewel Hound Dog Lure Retriever myself. bannana2

I got the frabill telescopic one. Paid for itself shortly, I was stupid not to buy one years ago, if your a crankbaiter its a must. I tried home brewing the plug knocker type and just couldn't get it to work. I'm convinced the pole style works better but of course if your caught deeper than 20' you have to use the plug on a string style
