blade lures - problem

I've been fishing blade style lures lately and I've been fishing them deep and hopped off the bottom. I've found this technique successful.

Now the problem I have is that I keep loosing them when i get snagged. I put some W hooks on one on Saturday. I caught a few bream and then snag..... lure lost.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how I can make these lures more snag resistant. I'm thinking of trying single hooks? or only 1 x W hook on the end of the lure. Any suggestions appreciated.

Matt

Just get yourself an excellent product called Tackle Back lure retriever.
I saved a lot of lures using it and always keep it in my boat.
One lure saved and you get your money back.
Cheers,
Alex

I was told that using a single barbless hook turned upside down so the hookpoint face upwards is a very snag resistant technique.








I tried that on a brand new Zipbait Metal Beat, 1st cast, it got snagged.....

I bought a tackleback the next day.

Does the tackleback work for shorebased anglers? Would the angle of the line stop the tackleback from reaching the lure? I'd really like to know as I've currently been wading in to retrieve my snagged lures!

It does work from a river bank, but not all the time. You do need to have a bit of an angle in the line for the tackleback to run down (need to have the line as tight as possible too). If the angle is too low (eg fishing a shallow river), the tackleback sometimes just sits in the middle between the rod and the lure and no amount of shaking and waving the rod will get it down to the lure. Using a light line also makes it that bit harder. Hence, if you can get well above the snagged lure in some way (eg if the snag is deep or the river bank is high, or you can stand on a bridge or on an esky or in a tree or something) it will usually work. Like others have said, only has to work once to get your money back on it. Make sure you have a long length of cord or very heavy line tied on it so you can have a real tug of war with the lure, or the retriever itself if it gets snagged.

O.K. thanks for the advise.

I found these on the net, has anyone used this type of lure retriever?

Harks,
I've started using a smaller red wolf retreiver with the same design after losing 2 tacklebacks in as many trips. Have only had to pull 3 snagged lures so far but it seems to work. All lures to date have been knocked free by the lead weight, none of them had their hooks caught by the chains.

Panger, I've never heard of Red Wolf lure retrievers. Have you got a weblink or pic? Where can you get them?

Cortinaboy,
I think they are distributed by Purefishing. Never saw them before either. I asked the local tacklo if he had any lure retrievers and he found them out of cluttered corner of the store. Didn't even know he had them.
