Scavenging fishing tackle

This video brings back fond memories.  When I was a youngster, my family spent a lot of time at Leech Lake in northern Minnesota.  From the time I was about 12 years old, I was allowed to take the boat out by myself (a heavy wooden 14-foot boat with a 7.5 hp Evinrude, laughable by today's standards of speed, but great for trolling and drifting).  I knew the locations of the logs on the lake bottom, and often tried to retrieve lures with home-made grappling hooks.
