OLD FISHIN' TIPSTER'S
TIPS AND TRICKS


Got a question about fishing, that you have never been able to figure out?

Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.


Don't you just hate losing those $5 crank plugs?

Man, I have seen brush tops that seem to eat them like they were candy. Well, along comes old Fishin' Tipster, Weekend Semi-Pro and resident backlash picking champion, with the solution.

All you need is an extendable/retractable pole, like a golf ball retriever or a paint roller extension. I have one that is 4 feet long when retracted and 12 feet long when extended. By adding 30 inches of my arm, I can reach down in the water almost 15 feet with it (that is plenty deep enough for most crank plugs!!).

Get a spring-loaded dog chain clip, a small hose clamp and some plastic electrical tape. Affix the clip to the end of the pole with the clamp and then tape over the clamp well with the tape. The tape prevents the line from getting cut or damaged by the metal clamp.

"In the picture of our retriever rig, you'll note that you can also add a couple of short pieces of small chain to snag the hooks of those really bad snags. Bent hooks are cheap to replace. Lures are not!"
