Trolling Sinkers
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!

Rock River Photos

The Rock River is a wide river with lots character. It has lots rocky shallows and many deep holes. It is a great Catfish river, but also has Walleye, Smallmouth Bass and lots of other fish. Below the lower dam at Sterling Rock Falls the river is shallow in most places and requires a boat with a jet drive motor. There are some deep holes that hold Catfish and other fish in the cold months. Fishing the dam area is always good for Walleye, Smallmouth Bass, Stripers and Catfish. The large Flathead Catfish will go there to spawn in the summer. You can pretty walk anywhere in the river around the dam, unless the water is high.

The pool above the upper dam all the way to Dixon Illinois is all deep and great for skiing. There is some good fishing on that pool as well. The dam tailwaters can be good in the colder months for Walleye.

The pool above Dixon has some shallow areas and can be hard to navigate without a jet drive. It gets less fishing pressure and has good fishing.
