We have all had annoying hang-ups or snags. One great idea is to take a paper clip and feed it through the eye of a large 2 or 3 ounce sinker. When you get snagged up, just slip the paper clip around your fishing line and let it go.
Keep your rod tip up and the line tight, the sinker will slide down the line and whack the lure. If this doesn't work the snag loose, just shake your rod tip and the sinker swinging around should knock the snag free.
I just love any tips and tricks that can save a few bucks, and hopefully this one will help my readers!
