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.

Best trolling device October 19, 2016
Reviewer: Walter Yovanovich from Valparaiso , IN United States  
I have used bottom bouncers but they snag frequently in cracks in the rocks and are sometimes impossible to free.  These Bait-Walkers are pretty much snag free and easy to retrieve when they do get hung up.

2 oz. bait walker June 21, 2016
Reviewer: Gene Averhoff from Dorchester, IA United States  
I use these for lake trout on 25'-50' depth reefs near 90' bottoms.  They are great for getting a good "feel" of the bottom as it changes drastically and continually while I back troll.  Sometimes use 3-ways but this is my old stand-by rig for trout on a "portage-in" Canadian lake we've fished for years.  Tried the Poorman's Downrigger this year.  Worked just as well but was a bit cheaper to buy.  Just wish I could find new Sutton 33 spoons to pull behind them!  :)  (Hammered gold/silver finish)  Seems they don't make them anymore and the occasional deep-water pike likes to take them from me.  I'm about out of them.
