Big Game Float

There is no better float made anywhere in the world than these BIG GAME FLOATS. They are perfect for working giant catfish, trophy muskie, prize northern pike, walleye or striped bass. They contain the equivalent buoyancy given once to the 'old' 5" cork for wooden floats used on the nation's waters for working giant suckers and shad minnows on. The 12" model will hold up a one-pound live sucker and its equalizer sinker weight.

Constructed with South American balsa wood, a SPECIAL SLIP-N-LOCK line-attaching device, and a through-glass stem, Gapen's floats are the strongest, most sensitive balsa floats on the market today. This is Gapen's Hungarian import. We do so because they are the WORLD'S FINEST in quality and performance. Constructed of South American balsa wood, quality epoxy paint and finished with premium clear varnish. Slip-N-Lock fishing floats are fitted with newly-patented snaplock attach/release devices. Fluorescent red float tips, set high above float, create easy visual contact for the angler who works live bait such as chubs, fatheads, sucker minnows, shad, worms, crickets and dead bait, for species such as bluegill, crappie, bass, walleye, catfish and big game species.


How the Slip-N-Lock Float Works

Slip-N-Lock balsa floats hosts a NEW attaching device which allows the angler to easily attach or detach the float from his line. By simply slipping the line through the slot on the side of the lock device and pulling the sleeve down. All the way to lock, partway for slip-floating. (click on "How-To-Use" for more details)

Gapen's Slip-N-Lock floats are constructed with a fiberglass core, high impact finish, durable balsa and durable locking device. They are GUARANTEED against breakage for ONE year from the time of purchase when used under normal fishing conditions.

5 of 5 Center Pin Fishing July 25, 2018
Reviewer: Ray from Holly, MI United States  
The big game floats are perfect for center pin fishing and the slip or fixed float feature is easily adjustable while wading. I like the high, bright orange, stem for visibility.

5 of 5 Great Bobber, Great Company November 6, 2014
Reviewer: Michael Hay from Port Edwards, WI United States  
I hesitated to write this review because I wanted to test these bobbers out.  I purchased a single bobber this summer and decided it was great, and wanted to try the rest.  They all work similarly, but what I like most about them is both ease of use, and the visibility.
Over time, it seemed as if some of the clasps needed to keep the line in place cracked.  After contacting Gapen, they graciously sent me better rubber replacements that look like they will work much better.  

Great Bobber, Great Company.  I will probably never use a different bobber again.
