Default ISO: Ideas on retrieving floating discs

I usually end up throwing sticks to make little waves to push my disc towards shore. But I've been in situations where the disc sits in the middle of a calm pond with no wind and only a few things to throw to make a disturbance. What do you guys do to retrieve such a disc?

I am assuming that this is not the disc "gator" you are referring to...

I've seen a wire hanger, a plastic bottle or two, and a string contraption, but I'd need MacGiver to set it up...

Don't tease yourself with floating discs.
Throw discs that sink and move on.

I agree with Broken Shoulder on this. I think it would be more frustrating to see a disc floating that I can't get than to just straight up lose it.
