If you don't have dog, what is best fishing lure to retrieve ducks?

Any guys have good wise experience on this one? I have a medium action fishing pole, and wondering what everyone that retrieves with that are out of reach?

I know i need a good dog, but for now asking about this

do you pinch them in so that it still grabs the duck, but so you can get hooks out i guess?

do those float? how long are the ones you use, that work good?

Largest Spook size you have, 3 treble preferably. If you weight the back end by using a very large/heavy hook it makes snagging much easier because the nose will be angled upward. Heavy line is essential

Zara spook is what I always used. That's why my dog's name is Zara now.

We used to make something similar to this. http://www.ebay.com/itm/VINTAGE-FETCH-IT...=item43cf0644d7

Ours had 3 wire hooks on the end, looked like a grappling hook Body was made out of Styrofoam, the wires twisted together and shoved up a hole drill in the middle. We had to add weight to it to get some distance. With a Zebco 33 you could fling that sucker across the country. Foam at Hobby Lobby, wire from coat hanger.
