Pencil Bobber Tips

When fishing our pencil bobber, be sure to use a quality split shot. We recommend Anchor or Super Duex brands to properly sink the float. For optimum performance with your baited hook no more than 1/2 inch of the float should be above the water. Use slightly less shot and more float tip above the water for swimming baits so they don’t take the bobber under.

With the new Slip-N-Lock fish this pencil bobber slip-bobber style or lock it in place on your line.  Switch from slip float to fixed bobber by moving the slider at the base of your bobber. This feature allows you to switch float sizes. If you need more casting distance or the if wind kicks up, easily switch to a bigger float. You should also have a 7″ Pencil Bobber in your tackle box in case the wind picks up.  With the bigger float you can cast a little further.

The bobbers are made with South American balsa wood. Each bobber includes a quick line attaching device. They are built with a tough through glass stem. Gapen’s floats are the strongest, most sensitive balsa floats on the market. These bobbers are Gapen’s Fishing and are made in Hungary.

Gapen fishing bobbers are fitted with newly-patented snaplock attach and release devices. Fluorescent red bobber tips, set high above float, create easy visual contact for the angler.  Fish live bait such as chubs, fatheads, sucker minnows, shad, worms, crickets and dead bait. These floats are a must for species such as bluegill, crappie, bass, walleye, catfish and big game fish.
