How can a person find a rod that falls overboard?

Jim:

I am looking for a device I can place on a rod so that when the rod falls overboard the device will dispense a line and marker to locate it.

Tim


Tim:

I am on the road right now and do not have the big Bass Pro Shops catalog with me. But, if one is still made, it should be in there. There was one at one time.

However, it did interfere with casting and made the rod heavier and somewhat out of balance. What I use to recover rods lost overboard involves 2 items and a degree of quickness. I keep a float marker secured in a bungee cord at the front of my boat, right next to the trolling motor. I keep it real handy in case I see structure on the depthfinder up front, OR in case someone kicks a rod over. If either happens, I immediately grab the float marker and throw it right on top of where the rod went down. Then, I use a big treble hook with a lead collar on it that I have filed the hook points off of. I attached the hook to a line and simply drop it down along side the marker. By dragging that heavy hook around for a moment, you will most always snag the lost rod. In fact, it has not failed for me in the past 20 years and that has been a number of rods!!
