Bagley Balsa B1 Squarebill Crankbait Review

Bagley Balsa B1 Squarebill Crankbait

The Bagley Balsa B1 Squarebill Crankbait has contributed to several victories in the Bassmaster Classic and remains a top pick among bass fishing enthusiasts. Its unmatched buoyancy and ability to navigate light to medium cover make it a formidable tool in timber and underwater structures.

Key Features:

  • Remarkable buoyancy
  • Square lip designed to maneuver through light to medium coverage
  • Use of a Heat Compression Molding process for enhanced strength and durability
  • Precise internal weighting for true tracking and effortless casting

This crankbait is unstoppable when targeting large, determined bass. Its square-lip design and buoyancy allow it to push through underwater debris and provoke fish into engaging with it. Its versatility is further evident in its ability to adapt to a variety of environments such as medium and light cover, making it ideal for use when fishing in small forage areas.

Tips for Effective Use:

  • Pair with light line, a sensitive rod, and a small reel to enhance the lively wiggle of the crankbait
  • Keep the lure in motion to optimize the square bill and balsa’s natural underwater bouncing motion
  • For larger bass preying on medium-sized forage, balance tackle with a slightly higher test and stiffer rod to allow for a stronger tumble through heavy cover
  • Occasionally pause during retrieval to allow the lure to re-engage its wobble motion

With the Bagley Balsa B1 Squarebill Crankbait, catching big, strong bass is no longer an elusive dream, but a reality waiting to happen.
