Remember these little buggers? Keating Floating Sinkers are now considered vintage fishing tackle. What makes these sinkers so unique is the action they’d put in your bait, these are not sinkers in traditional sense.
The hollow tube was designed to slowly sink a fisherman’s bait to the bottom, while giving it a few twitches for realistic action.
The company claimed “if left motionless in the water, it will sink, retrieved slowly, it will rise, retrieved at full speed it will skip along the surface of the water.”
Anyone one who used the tackle knows the Keating Floating Sinkers didn’t actually work the way they wanted them to. But still, even if they didn’t work really good, now they make a great collectibe for a any fisherman who loves vintage fishing tackle.
