I have seen many shore and boat anglers fighting to get their snags out. When watching them I have noticed how many times they get snagged up when reeling their lines in. They have to remember that when the reeling back their lines most often they are dragging their hooks accross the bottom just waiting for the first snag to grab ahold. Remember this simple step when your going to reel in your line. Snap the rod tip up and keep it up while reeling fast keeping the hook of the bottom. This will help cut down the number of snags you get, and save on your tackle bill. Hope this little tip helps a few of you out.
