Bait-Walker Sinker

The Bait-Walker Sinker was created to walk rocky bottom structure without snagging up. It was designed in 1975 by Dan Gapen, Sr. to work both live bait and lures, such as crankbaits, spoons, trolling flies and stick plugs. Research proved the Bait-Walker to be 85 to 90% snag-free on natural rock bottom in both lake and river. The Bait-Walker walks across bottom with little resistance, because less than 5% of the sinker touches bottom. Built with a patented flat back, the angler feels less than 50% of the sinker's actual weight. Example: a 2 oz. Bait-Walker pulls but 1 oz. or less, at rod tip. When engaged in a rock crevice, the user only has to back over the snag, pull hard, and feel the sinker pivot back on itself and out of the snag. When touching rough rock bottom, because the point of pull is up and above the sinker weight, this rig will help lift up off the bottom then settle back to bottom inches later.

Besides all these features, the Bait-Walker also acts as a keel sinker, providing line twist while trolling. Nothing will get live bait or your favorite stick plug down where fish hold--better than a Bait-Walker sinker. Rig up a Gapen Bait-Walker and bait walk your offerings across structure to catch more fish. Walleye rigs, lake trout trolling, catfish weight and salmon rigging couldn't be easier than with the Gapen Bait-Walker. Bottom-bounce your way to hungry bottom-hugging fish with a Gapen Bait-Walker today.

Last bait walker June 16, 2018
Reviewer: MARTIN REAY from PORTLAND, MI United States  
30 years ago l purchased my last group of bait walkers. Over the next 20 years I gave some to buddies, caught many fish using them as bottom bouncers and eventually left all but one or two on the bottom of many lakes. After looking in old hardware stores,  mail order and national sporting stores I finally found  gapen.com and now I am back to fishing with my tried and true system. Thanks

Reviewer: Ken O from Wichita , KS United States  
Started using these for walleye fishing 15 to 20 years ago. They really help keep your bait just off the bottom. Go through the weeds real well. Probably caught 10 master angler awards in Canada on them.
