Depends, where. When I used to do that sort of thing, it was $75 for the first hour and then, $50-75 for additinal hrs depending on the item, equipment needed, area. Ask Skip, he's more up to speed on the current rates.

go get yourself a big weight treble hook and try traging it around first maybe u get lucky and snag the line..

I don't think it would still be in the exact same place u lost it due to current...

How much is the rod/reel? Is it worth the trouble and expense--and risk--of having someone raise it? Also, that reel will probably need a lot of work and parts after sitting in salt water. Doesn't seem to add up as being worth it.

To hire a recovery diver would be very expensive - well more then the rod / reel. The visibilty in the upper bay is next to zero and it could take hours for a diver to bump into it.

I retrieve snagged or lost anchors ( and wedding rings ) for TFers as a favor. Most guys push a few dollars my way but I do it more for fun / adventure.

Since you have the numbers - try this. Rig a weighted jug line about 5 feet more then depth of water. Drop the marker - then try drifts around it with 1-2 weighted treble hooks - 5/0 size. Use a lot of weight on the trebles so they are more / less straight up / down.

Work out about 100 feet circle from the jug.
