I’d find a bunch every year down on the shores of Canadice Lake when I was a kid.  It seemed like the biggest deal to find a lure.    Sometimes you’d hit the jackpot with a CP Swing or Mepps swung around a high branch; not too high for a 14 year old kid though…… :)

There’s a creek near me that flows into the lake ,it’s overhung with branches and they hang there like ornaments on a Christmas tree .

A pole saw works to get many of them .

Ive been thinking of buying some snorkeling gear and going along the piers around here .

That’s a nice haul you got .

we have an old shallow farm pond that used to hold some good bass. one day my little brother and I decided it was time to get lures out of the branches. took up a 22LR rifle and a brick of 22LR thunderbolts. took turns shooting until the limbs would fall. then weighted trebble hook and heavy line we snagged the limbs and pulled them to shore. many were ours but we always let friends borrow lures that they lost at some point. lol "i used to have one just like that but i lost it at some where I don't remember." they'd always say.

My best find was in the overflow side of the Sabine River that comes out of toledo bend reservoir. We got alot of rain and they opened up the overflow. The stripers ran up that side instead of the hydro dam side. Everyone was there losing  lures. When the water finally dropped my buddy and I filled a 5 gallon bucket. We took them back and split the loot lol.

Years ago I had access to a, while not technically private beach, just as good as one since there was nowhere for the public to park.  I was working nights then, so would surf cast for blues or float eels for bass, pretty much every single day for months.  Waking down the high tide line to where I liked to fish, I'd find lots of large swimming lures, usually Rebels or similar, any floating lure.  Eventually I ended up with a big box of them, some good, some very old with their hooks mostly gone. Thing is I never used them myself, eventually just throwing them all away. lol
