The slip-sinker rig eliminates the resistance, as a walleye strikes the bait the angler free spools the line allowing the walleye to swim away to eat the bait for a hookset.

The slip sinker rig is made up of three components, a hook, sliding weight and a stop.

You can make slip bobber rigs rather easy or buy them at sport shops.

To make a slip bobber rig simply start with your stop attached to the fishing line, you can use a piece of string or a rubber band knotted on the line thread on a small bead then the bobber.

When you pull the rig the stop catches the sinker as it moves along the bottom allowing the bait to look natural for an easy meal.

The sinker is the most important component, it must be heavy enough to get the rig to the bottom.

They can be purchased pre-tied at most sport shops or you can make your own.

Fishing the slip sinker rig is quite easy, after a cast allow the rig to sink.

After each twitch maintain a taut line while the jig sinks back to the bottom. If your line is not taut you won’t feel a strike, sometimes you will feel a distinctive tap, other times you will feel light pressure as if the jig is hung up. When fishing with jigs a must have is a fast action sensitive rod so you can feel even the lightest taps, the fast action gives the power for an immediate hookset.

Walleye are known for picking up live bait and dropping it as soon as they feel any type of resistance.

Most often walleyes relate to bottom structure, leader lengths of 18 to 36 inches works the best.

When walleyes suspend at a certain depth on a piece of structure (rock pile, crib, or submerged hump) the slip bobber rig is highly effective by presenting the live bait at a pre set depth, putting the bait right in their face.

For hooks the smaller the better, size 6-8 octopus to maintain a natural look.
