Problem draining pop-up tub stopper

Hi, they installed a pop-up drain stopper in our tub. It is... well, stopped up. I unscrewed the top to try to unclog it, and I cannot get the pop-up part out. I know it has to be hair. I have tried pliers and a screw driver. Any tips about how to get this thing off so I can deal with the drain (pic attached)Name:  13615248_304932363174442_8379589219502545083_n.jpg

Use a flat blade screwdriver in the center. Unscrew counter clockwise (lefty loosey).

TY, I will try it again, perhaps I was going the wrong way. I could've sworn I tried it both ways though
