Description Float Fishing TIps
The Pencil Float is one of our most sensitive floats and one of the best floats for cold-water and tough bite fishing conditions. The Gapen Pencil Float is both a casting and pole fishing float, a fixed float (fixed depth) and a slip float or slider float. The float (bobber) is so versatile because of it's special SLIP-N-LOCK line attachment hook.

ALL GAPEN floats fish both slip-float style and fixed float style.

Use the Pencil float's SLIP-N-LOCK to add it to your rig and to take it off quickly. One of the only bobbers on the market where you can change floats without remaking your bobber rig. Simply slide the locking sleeve open and you can transport your rod and rig without the float bouncing up and down. When you are ready to fish - simply snap the hook on your line and lock down the sleeve - simple and fast to setup.

How the Slip-N-Lock Float Works

2 of 5 Ordered 5 inch pencil float August 20, 2020
Reviewer: Martin Barbarich from Wolcott, IN United States  
I was disappointed as the floats only measured 4 inches and were way smaller than I expected. I guess I will have to order the bigger ones but with what you charge for them and adding shipping, this is very expensive.

5 of 5 The perfect bobber for Panfish August 4, 2020
Reviewer: Roger from Marion, IA United States  
I use this 5 inch pencil bobber for fishing for bluegills from shore with my granddaughter. It reveals even the tiniest nibble on the bait, so never has to wait more than a few minutes before hooking a fish. Wonderful!!
