Best Bottom Bouncers for Walleye

I was looking at some bottom bouncers and I can’t believe what people use. I’m surprized more walleye fisherman don’t buy my bottom bouncers, they out perform all others in many ways. For one thing they walk the bottom on two legs and so the won’t spin. They are fully weight adjustable, you can add or remove weights with ease and any egg sinker will work. If the sinker gets caught between two rocks and won’t break free, the weight will slide off saving your sinker rig and your spinner-rig, which aren’t cheap or easy to make.

Another thing they do that others can’t do is have a low price. This is because they are so simple to make. Wire, swivel, weight. No pouring the weight onto the wire, it just slides on. And they also work as a slip sinker, you can feed out line in current, or let a fish “take it” without feeling any weight at all.

To use these all you have to do is slide the sinker on then tie on your leader rig. It comes with a match swivel so you can use the exact same size swivels so they won’t stick. These are large strong swivels designed for big fish and rugged fishing. Give them a try, if your like me you won’t be able to use anything else. Oh ya, they work for Catfish too, they keep your line off the bottom in current and won’t roll with the current.
