Trolling Sinkers
Clip-on Sinkers
Bottom Bouncers
Get better control of the depths, keep your lures free from debris, walks on two legs, won't spin, tangle free, less knots, easy to use & store. Clip-on sinkers and bottom bouncing slip sinkers, the best trolling sinkers around and the price is hard to beat. I caught 3 Walleye over 11 pounds using these Clip-on Sinkers at Lake Erie! They work on the mississippi River too! The slip sinkers are a must have for rivers and lakes. No more tieing knots all day with a 3-way rig, just run line through the sinker and tie to leader, just one knot!

Palisades Park Mississippi River 2011 - I stopped by Palisade park while in Savanna to get some photos of the Mississippi River. I walked out on one path that has a perch overlooking the bluffs and just before I got to the narrow edge I noticed a wasp had a nest in the dirt right where I was going to step. If I had made one more step I would have stepped on the wasp and probably would have been attacked by wasps while on a narrow edge with a 100' drop. Those bluffs are dangerous.
