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.

5 of 5 Good to be back September 9, 2021
Reviewer: Paul Wargo from Harsens Island, MI United States  
Went back to slow trolling after many years of jigging or casting, and was happy to see the Bait Walkers were still available.  Seems like they work even better now with new crankbaits.

5 of 5 Bait Walker August 6, 2021
Reviewer: Daniel Nielsen from NORFOLK, NE United States  
Got the product in really good time, at least two to three days quicker than expected.  Have used these products in the past and have always been quite fond of them.  These are performing and meeting my expectations and I will be ordering some other sizes.    Would love to see them in more stores in my area.  Very great product for the way I fish.

5 of 5 Fantastic Customer Service August 1, 2021
Reviewer: Steve Cannon from Farmington , NM United States  
I purchased a few trolling sinkers from Gapen. It was a small order, but it and I were treated as though it was a million dollar purchase!! The notifications of order receipt, shipment, and follow-up are absolutely incredible! I will purchase more items as needed from Gapen!

Reviewer: Matt Goodrich from Newport, WA United States  
Your customer service is outstanding!  I received my order only to find that the contents were missing.  The Mail service sent me an empty package.  Informed Gapen and they reshipped the order promptly.  Thank you for your timely and efficient response.  Love using your Bait-Walker.
