Let’s face it, fishing lures can be expensive.
In fact, I have seen some lures that cost as much as $100 apiece. Don’t believe me? Check out a previous post on the most expensive swimbaits.
However, the idea of spending that kind of cash for a single lure makes me, as well as others, quite nervous.
Now I am not discouraging anyone from spending a lot of money on fishing gear. I understand that in most cases a higher-priced lure is most likely going to perform better than a cheaper option.
The part that makes me most nervous about fishing with such an expensive lure is what comes next. After buying a lure we attach hooks to it and then we proceed to launch it into the unknown.
Yes, we target areas where we know there will be laydowns, brush piles, structure, etc. All the while hoping (sometimes praying) that our lure doesn’t get snagged.
So it is not so much about making that initial investment that makes me nervous, but rather it is the idea of losing that money in a brush pile or a laydown. Not to mention the time spent trying to get it back or going to the store to find a replacement.
So what can be done?
Well if you are tired of losing lure after lure, you can have come to the right place.
In this post, we are going to talk about a simple tool that could save you hundreds of dollars a year in fishing gear. It is a lure retriever.
What is a lure retriever? Which lure retrievers are the best?
Let’s talk about that….
