The Gambler Wrecking Ball is a jointed jig providing a free-swinging action to any attached plastic that gives real life to the presentation. If you've fished the jointed jig heads you are probably already aware of how effective they can be in a number of different scenarios - realistically, the possibilities of the technique are endless. The key element of the Gambler Wrecking Ball is the joint where the eye of the hook attaches to the weight via a connection loop - this unique setup brings the trailing soft plastic bait to life enabling it to swim and kick freely unlike it would if the hook was fixed to the weight. Anglers can attach whatever soft plastic they'd like to the Mustad offset wide gap style hook - be it creature, craw, swimbait or worm - the plastic will come to life behind the football shaped weight. Most fishermen use a combination of a reeling/dragging retrieve to give the bait some swimming action, but also offering fish time to catch up to the easy prey.
