Hester's Umbrella Rig and Lure Retriever
If you troll umbrella rigs or X-Rigs, you need to have one of these on your boat. Simply attach a long piece of line to the eye and slip the retriever over your fishing line. The weighted retriever will follow the fishing line down to your umbrella rig and allow you to pull it free of whatever it's hung on. Works 99% of the time. And when you've got nearly $30 worth of tackle hung in a tree below the surface, this handy accessory will pay for itself the first time you use it. A must-have for everyone who trolls artificials.
Don't leave the docks without one of these in your tackle bag. You will need some sash cord for deploying the retriever (not included).
