Get Snagged Lures Back By Using Your Rod

We’re not recommending this system for everyone, but if you’re a tournament angler in a hurry, using your rod as a plug knocker is a fast way to get that crankbait back. Word of caution, this system can damage your rod tip, or worse yet, the line could break causing you to lose the entire rod and reel combo to the water. The standing wave technique is a safer bet that works well on snagged single-hook lures.
