Cotton Cordell Big O Squarebill Crankbait

The Cotton Cordell Big O Squarebill Crankbait is the first advance in the Big O since Cotton Cordell transformed Fred Young’s wooden carving into plastic in 1973. Now equipped with a tougher lip, they still retain that original fish-catching action, buoyant body and cover-deflecting ability as the original. Available in today’s hottest color patterns, the Cotton Cordell Big O Squarebill Crankbait is made right here in the USA.

Customer Reviews

Comments: Now that these are made overseas the quality is not like one that was made years ago. I am sure that they still catch fish, but I will reach for an old one first to catch those East Tennessee brown fish.

Comments:  I first used the Big O Smoky Joe and Chrome Black in the early '80's and this lure took every game fish it came across, smallmouth bass, walleye and pike,even some aggressive Brown Trout on my home waters of French Creek and the Allegheny River

Comments: Up here in Canada, they sell these in 3 packs. Comes with the chartreuse, perch and pearl red eye. I have caught so many different species with all 3 colors on different lakes. Pearl color is excellent for trouts on a slow retrieve. I use the Perch color for mostly pike and the Chartreuse for all types of bass and sunfish. What's good is you can burn them on the retrieve and they don't roll over like most squarebills. They give off a good vibration on the tip of the rod so it's easy to detect strikes. The durability is there as well. Mine are so beat up but are still in tune and still catches fish everytime. I have hundreds of hard baits in my tackle box but I still end up going to these 3 when I have to produce fish. Pair it with a wacky rig worm and you'll have a productive day of fishing for sure.

Comments: 4 years ago I swore by these baits as they flat out caught fish, fast forward to now. They still catch fish but you will need 15 of them to produce 2 fish. I don't know what happened to the quality of their bills but they suck and break if they hit anything. I will not buy another one if my life depended on it.  Very crappy quality

From: Robert: NC

Comments: I have caught over 400 bass river and stream fishing with the chart black back orange belly. Of course it's discontinued and over priced on EBay.

From: Brian: Pikeville, Ky

Comments: All around awesome bait.I go to Canada every summer and the big "O" just kills the pike every time, and the lg.mouth and small mouth killem as well! It'the go to bait when the fishing gets slow. Have caught crappy and walleye on them as well!

From: John: wooster,ohio,usa

Comments: STOOPID Bait!! I bought one on a whim because Wal Mart is selling these things for $1.50 and was blown away by it's reliability. I bought the chrome black one and it is a tank coming through cover...the finish is nicked up pretty good now but I bought all I could get my hands on..change out the cheapie hooks and look out..
