Bass Pro Shops Baitcast Pic
great little tool
Every once and a while I will get a nasty birds nest with one of my baitcasters, and thats when I reach for this tool. It is really a money saver because I don't have to cut and trash expensive flourocarbon line.

Bait Cast Pic
Cudos to Bass Pro for offering yet another unique and useful item. I have seen this tool in the Bass Pro catalogs for years, but It wasn't until I recently read the reviews that I realized it had a small hook on the end of it. That intrigued me enough to buy one. I wish I had done so a long time ago. There is no substitute for using the right tool for the job. One use during a tourney can more than justify the price. I don't know how long mine will last and I don't care. I only know my tackle box will always have one in it.

Let's face it...
...It happens to all of us every now and then! In the heat of the moment you look down and see your line buried in the spool or tangled beyond comprehension. This tool works much better than my banana-hands at getting that line out without cutting off. My braid will sometimes get buried in the spool after a huge fight, trying to free a snag, or even the occasional casting error. Although the metal is easy to bend, this tool is cheap enough to replace, and will exchange repair time with casting time. A winner!

This is a MUST for baitcast reel Fishing!
Started fishing with spinning reels some time ago. I still use them once in awhile and you don't need this tool for that. I switched to the baitcast reels and if you forget to get the settings of the reel right before the 1st cast in the morning, your going to have a bad day! Try and get the backlash out with big fingers? Forget it! Ain't gonna happen! This tool has saved me many hours getting that nasty little loop that stops the line comming off the reel! HIGHLY reccomended device! I broke the plastic off my 1st pick so I bought some more!
My friend like the this pick so much that he was going to make one. Didn't happen!
Instead I bought 4 MORE! and gave him one as well as another friend!
This pick saves you a ton of time and gets your lure back in the water FASTER than without it!
