Yesterday was our 1st time spider rigging. overall it went a lot better than planned. Started off with four 10' BGJP's. The first 30 minutes, needless to say, was a cluster. After that all went pretty well. After getting in to our groove we decided to put out a couple more smaller rods. This is when this happens. Brand new Abu Garcia.

Every BnM rod, I've ever dropped over the side floated. I assumed that all BnM rods floated. I need to check and see if my Capps and Coleman float.

I've dropped a lot of BnM's as well and they all floated. This was an Abu Garcia...... they sink like bricks.

I've sunk 4 poles over the years ... Caught all 4 ...

*Double minnow rigged 6ft baitcaster
*5ft dock shootin rod
*14ft spider rig rod
*7ft catfish rod

Pitch a marker buoy out immediately ...!!!

Then get out the double treble heavy blade bait and start dragging ...

I just lost a Sam Heaton 12 ft. Bout 70.00 bucks,
Mine blew out of boat, getting older aint no fun.
Forgot to tie it down!!
You might could have put on a heavy weight and trebble hook if you had it and dragged it across the bottom. Your marker had it located.
I feel your loss!

Lol. As you can see, it went down right by the marker bouy. Was going to drag it up before we moved. But... I just so happened to remember it about 5 minutes after picking the bouy up. Go figure. [emoji52]

Waypoint would have worked if you had that option

The best thing to use for trying to grab a rod off the bottom is to use the old metal fish stringers. Open all of them up and have at it.....works very well.

Couldn't remember which one I was on....guess I could drag'em all! This on my honey hole by the way. Markers are on the bigger trees, on the outer edge of a grove of trees in 15 to 20 ft of water on a main lake point. Crappie are always stacked in it. 279184

Ouch,that hurts.Not familiar with your setup,but magnet fishing might be a good option in case of future mishaps.

+1 this is the best method for getting your rod back. It works better than a treble hook. I have retrieved two rods using this method.

It happens to all of us at one time or another. I can at least say I have caught more of other peoples lost rod & reels by accident (prolly 7 or eight) than I have lost myself... I have only lost one in many years of fishing.

I put my rod and reel on top of my brothers Bimini top and grabbed another rod and forgot about it. My brother saw it fall off the top at the last second. Gone to the bottom, a few weeks later a crappie guide friend found it. I donít know why the friend hasnít re- lined with new line and cleaned and oiled the reel and over nighted it to me (lol).
