It works, but depends on how far down into the rocks you are. I've gotten a jigging rap out of rocks and I've also not been successful with rocks...but again, overall I get way more back than I lose.
Seems like many times in rocks it is the front hook that gets you....if the lure retriever can slide down and push that hook forward you should be able to save it.

And doing the math, once you save 2 lures, you have paid for the "Hound Dog"....anything after that I look at as a bonus! Haha....

Greetings Lakewood,

It sounds to me that you are winning more than losing with your lure retriever. Maybe you don't get them all back, but your getting enough lures back to make it worthwhile. I will look into getting one of these.

Thanks for the suggestion!

I just wanted to add that if rocks are a concern, tube jigs rigged to dart will work just as well as jigging rap style baits. Don't push the jighead all the way to the tip of the tube. Leave a bit of tube beyond the jighead, opposite the tentacles. If you don't push it far enough, it will drag head down and not dart up. You've now made a balance jig out of the tube which is all the rapala is.
