Sabiki stuck inside BaitStick

Anyone ever get their rig stuck up in their stick? :rotflmao

Jokes aside, any ideas for getting it out? The swivel broke so the weight fell off. The rig is stuck up inside. I can't reach it with pliers.

    Don't know if it will work, but try a vacuum cleaner. Or pull the butt cap off and shove it thru with a coat hanger

    Try running the hose from the reel end, should blow it out. If that doesn't work, put bubble gum on a coathanger and stick it. Yeah, very experienced with the sabiki devil :banana

    I second the water hose. Had to do it once and it flushed it out.

    Take a piece of wire leader about two feet longer than the rod. About two inches from the end bend it back against the main wire. Now take the unbent end and thread it from the reel end out the tip. From the tip end fish it out slowly. The hook at the other end will snag the rig and pull it right out. Used this method more than a couple times.
