Description History
The Gapen Bobber stop is a high-performance, easy-to-use way to fish deeper waters. Gapen silicone bobber stops work all day and stay in place. These are very easy to use.
Bass anglers use these stops for creating drop shot and worm rigs. Walleye and panfish anglers are able to easily make deep water rigs using the Gapen bobber stops.

Gapen Bobber - Float stops are used for many types of rigs. This is the fastest, easiest way to set up a slip bobber with this device. Simple, easy to use and no fumbling - quickly add a bobber stop to set the depth for your float. Have two or three sizes on hand for different fishing. They come in three sizes to match line thicknesses. They are very durable and will STICK in place all day long - unlike the cloth bobber stops which can slip. If you need to adjust the bobber stop's depth- simply wet the line above the bobber stop- and slide it up to fish deeper.
  • Insert your line in the large loop
  • Pull one stop onto the line off the wire / plastic starter
  • Pinch both sides of line
  • Pinching the stop, pull it all the way up onto line.
  • The short piece of line should come free
  • Slide stop to depth
  • Find the depth the fish are feeding at and you can catch a lot of fish!
Multiple uses for setting up fishing rigs, slip bobbers for deep waters, weight stops for sliding rigs and also for bulk egg sinker stops for larger floats.

3 sizes are based on thickness of line. Choose the stops that match your line and have at least 2 sizes in your tackle box. Size 1 is for slip bobber rigs on lighter lines (2 - 4 lb.). Size 2 is for medium lines (6 - 9 lb.) and the heavy-duty stop size is for beastie-thick lines. Lines 10 -15 lb. demand a much thicker, stronger stop.
Wetting your line above the stop will help you adjust the stop's depth. You may need a bead below the stop and in-between the float - but most of our floats in the bobber section will stop nicely on these nylon bobber stops without the bead. If you want a bigger visual indicator- you can add a bright piece of string below the stop.

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 slipfloating. GUARANTEE: 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.
