Bass Pro Shops E-Z Lure Retriever
Saved my marriage!
This lure retriever saved my marriage! I think after preparing for another trip into the wild north of Canada that if I had to buy one more lure my wife of over 20 years would have left me and the fish I caught but not happening now because for the first time I did not lose one single lure in over 6 days of fishing. This retriever worked perfectly and we got braver and braver as time went on with our casts and trolling not to mention jigging but neither of us lost a lure-that is a first. After last year I had to refit my tackle box and now this year I have almost no reason to go shopping again. Thank God it is almost ice fishing time! I always need new lures and stuff for that type of fishing!:-)

Great product--I've only had this a few days and it has already help me retrieve my stuck lures 3 times, so I guess it's paid for itself. The only problem is that the cord gets tangled and twisted easily, so I wrap it around an old line spool to prevent this. You could easily include one with the purchase and save anglers the headache of having to take the time to untangle it.

Opt for the spool/reel version
This product works well, but I would *highly* recommend getting the model that has the spool and reel to keep the extra rope under control.
I've used it a few times to retrieve some expensive crankbaits, so the retriever works really well, but not easy to handle the length of cordage.
I have used the non-reel version. The cord can get easily tangled and knotted during storage, and can be a HUGE mess when trying to use the product to retrieve your lure, you will have cordage everywhere, likely entangled in other fishing equipment on your boat.
Unless you like untying knots, opt for the reel encasing. It is worth the money.
