Fred Young Big O crankbaits

Recommended Posts

If you are referencing the ones from cabelas I have 5 of them in 2 sizes. The only problem with them is one of mine has a cracked lip. I have had it for a ling time but just noticed last year so I stopped using it(not that it got used allot anyway). I do throw my other ones once in a while but I have yet to catch a fish on any of them, probably more me than the cranks. Hope this helps.

I bought one last year, but I must admit I did not use it.

The original Big O's were originally whittled by Fred Young well over 30 years ago.  They were the first of what the tackle industry called the alphabet plugs. Big O, Big N, Super R,  Balsa B, etc.  They demanded big $$ on the BASS trail back then since there were so few around.

I've used them on and off.  I've had better luck with a long discontinued Rogers bait called the Big Jim and of course, the old Balsa B's.

I have never used the ones made out of balsa, but I do use the plastic ones quite a bit.  I like the 1/4 ounce size ripped over the tops of weeds.
