I have the same problem with getting hung up in rocks where I fish, although there are only tidal currents, unlike a river. Since I started doing this, though, I haven't lost another weight. When I'm ready to reel in, I'll take up the slack in the line, not really pullin in at all, just taking up the slack, then I'll tighten my drag up pretty tight, hold the rod tip high and give it a hard yank, almost like a cast in reverse. Then just reel fast and high to keep it off the bottom as it comes in. If I just pick up the rod and start reeling, I'll get hung up almost every time.

I still can't really fish any lures there besides top water stuff, and swim shad. Pretty much everything else I've tried there ends up in lure heaven.

Hope that helps!!
