Rod/reel retrieval in 25' of water - 10/21/19 05:11 PM
My neighbor just lost his grip and threw his best ultralight rod and reel out of his hand. That was problem number 1. Number 2 was he snagged the marker bouy that I threw out right where the rod went in and moved it. I locked in the GPS coordinates. Another problem is it is only a 5' rod and the bail is open. We threw some slabs and dragged the bottom recovering all kinds of carp except the rod. I went back with some larger striper slabs and no luck. I even threw my cast net for while. Anyone have any better ideas? The bottom is clean as far as snags go.
