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.

Walker Weights July 27, 2017
Reviewer: Cris Goodale from Adel, IA United States  
I could not find 3/8 oz weights in stores so I ordered them direct from Gapen. Service was excellent and they were mailed immediately, Shipping and handling was reasonable.   They were exactly what I wanted.  I would recommend Gapen to anyone who needs products they supply.

Bait Walker order July 26, 2017
Reviewer: Avid Walleye Fisherman from Cedar Falls, IA United States  
Gapen Company was expedient at filling my order. However, some of the materials included in my order were not up to comparable standards with the rest of the order. I contacted the Company and they replaced the substandard materials within a week at no charge.
Overall it was a good buying experience and I will continue to support the Co.

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.
