              Still have a Big O. Not sure where you can get new ones, if at all.

                      Actualy the "Big O" and "Lil O " were named after my dad and I. Dad's passed now and everybody calls me "Big O" now.
                      Cotton Cordell was a friend of the family way back when he was selling live bait in the 50's/60's.

                          Big O:

                          Here you go.

                          I also remember seeing these somewhere the other day. I'm not sure it could have been at Gander Mountain or somewhere like this. I hope this helps.

                              Wow! A celebrity in our midst... I used the Cordell Big O quite a bit (no offense little O)... a great lure and it is good to learn of its namesake... thanks for letting us in on that.
