Thumbs down internal mast halyard-lost

I lost the halyard, and it ran up over the top of the mast and down inside. I believe it us bunched up at the steaming wiring. I've got the other end at the step of the mast, but it is kinked and not budging...

I thought I would get a grappling style fishing hook on some twine, weighted, and try to retrieve this halyard.
It was one of those moments that happens in slo-motion and you immediately start kick yourself for the obvoiuse things i could have done to avoid this!

All sugestions are welcome, I am hopeful someone has a good idea for me to pursue. Thank you in advance, David
