Bass Pro Shops XPS Balsa Boogie Crankbait
Everybody wondered just what the heck long-time Ozarks guide Bob Martin was throwing. No matter who fished those Truman tourneys of the 80s and 90s, they didn't stand a chance against Bob and his "secret bait." And he kept a tight lid on it, because he knew that if the secret ever got out, things would never be the same on his beloved Truman Lake. Today, we're proud to present Bob's original go-to-bait, updated with state-of-the-art technology. The Bass Pro Shops® XPS® Balsa Boogie Crankbaits patent-pending chassis anchor the pull point/hooks and helps it run true on every cast. The balsa body is fitted with a precisely angled diving lip, which created a rolling, vibrating action that bass can't help but hammer. 3-D laser eyes, loud internal rattle, VMC premium hooks.

I like a more active wiggle in warmer water, but even then I find too much vibration makes for missed fish that hit from behind.
In colder water, a tight wiggle works better because Bass won't chase as far and want something that looks like it won't put up much of a fight.
