Yes they do, I have not gone that slow my self, but we did catch a good number of then while heading dead into the wind and we were at 1.5 to 1.7. I did consider bottum bouncing with them but never ended up trying. I would bet my paycheck that 1mph would still fill your live well!

I have been running them off 4 &5 oz bottom bouncers and yes they are still pulling fish down to 1.3 below that and your drifting

One of my favorite methods is to drift with bottom bouncer and harness. I am going to try the gambler in place of the harness and see how it does.

I think it would be lights out up

on the river too...better than spinners.  I need someone willing to do an airbrush job on these things.

I am thinking of learning. I have to order a large amount of custom colors. It makes it tough on a small business to make large purchases like that. I have one custom color on order but would love to be able to do my own!

Fishing out there is stupid easy once the Ohio fish show up but everyone who fishes for Waldo knows how color sensitive they can be...even when the bite is good, and it’s different depending on your harbor and the water color/light conditions/forage where ur fishing.  At the end of the day these spin n glow colors are tailored to west coast salmon and steelhead fisherman.  Awesome tho that you guys have found an alternative that outfishes the old school Lake Erie spinner rigs....which I HATE (not speed tolerant, excessive by-catch, etc.)

If this trend continues, I will order more custom colors tailored to the walleye fishery.  This week was the second most profitable week since I started Gambler Rigs 4 years ago.  My inventory is being depleted as fast as I can make them.  It will be a busy winter for sure!

      Hello All, Brian Gamble is a fisherman that knows his stuff.   We launch out of the same port.  He has a reputation as a fellow lake trout enthusiast,  so I have wanted to meet Brian for some time now.  Even so, it has taken me this long to finally spend a morning aboard his well decked-out boat.    We were a crew of three, with Keith, Brian's longtime friend, also there. Before the trip, I was fed some impressive, almost inconceivable statistics about catch rates and s

    • Storing Gambler Rigs

      Many guys have asked me how to store Gambler Rigs. I purchased these boxes from Amish Outfitters (at the recommendation of Silver Fox). They are the cutbait storage boxes and the hold 24 rigs (regular or magnum). These boxes will keep them in better shape. You put the hooks into the bottom of the foam and wrap them around the pad. They come with little pins that you put through the loop on the leaders to hold them in place. Here is a picture below for reference.     Sent from my iPhon

    • Pike Behavior - Head/Eyes out of the water

      Last night while fishing a LO trib, I witnessed a pike swimming very slowly with it's head just above the surface. Sometimes it would submerge so that just the front of it's mouth was out and other times you could see the entire head and eyes. This is the second time I've witnessed this. Both times in the spring........... Any theory on what's going on here?
