Syclops

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye
Testimonial:My family and I head north to Ontario, Canada every year. The first few years we would take tackle box among tackle box with everything and the kitchen sink. The third year we stopped at a small tackle and bait shop in Red Lake, ON and picked up a couple of the Mepps Syclops. Figured we would give them a try. The clerk said they worked well. Have not looked back since. They work especially well for Pike, troll with them and you'll get plenty of walleye. I lean towards the Firetiger. Every year I bring one home that didn't get lost and it is just mutilated and scarred from catching so many. Great lures. For the price there is no reason to not have at least one. Thanks Mepps.

Fish Caught:Bass, White - Pike, Northern - Walleye
Testimonial:The Gold #00 Syclops was a killer bait. I found it on shore one day and never knew Mepps made spoons and since the white bass run was on, I was psyched to try it out. And, man did it catch the whites bad. I outfished all of my friends who were tossing small Daredevils and Twister. I caught some walleye and pike while I was at it, too, but as soon as I went to try a different bait, I didn't catch a single fish after. I guess they just love the erratic action of the Syclops.

Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:Just returned from our annual fishing trip to Anishinabi Lodge in Ear Falls, Ontario. We really only need one lure, since we caught all types of fish on the same lure. That lure was the 1 oz silver Syclops. Our party landed several northern in the 35 to 40 inch class, several walleyes 18 to 24 inches, jumbo perch, smallmouth bass, and lake trout. It was amazing.

Fish Caught:Pickerel
Testimonial:Went fishing with my grandson on October 18 in skinny water for Eastern Chain Pickerel. We were using the Hot Orange #2 Syclops equipped with a Siwash single hook, we hooked thirty of various sizes from 12 inches to two feet. We lost half as many. I have never seen a lure that they took so eagerly. This was my second great fishing with Syclops. A month before, we also H/R at least two dozen pickerel, some nearly 30 inches in length. Must find some #3 Hot Orange Syclops for next season.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)
Testimonial:Fishing at a local spot, always catching bluegill,shellcracker, pumpkinseed, and other panfish with my size #00 glo pink/white Mepps Syclops. All was normal, whacking panfish off the bridge, when a 20" largemouth bass strikes my lure, beauty. I use this lure for a variety of fish, all seem to want it. Great job Mepps, looking forward to more fishing.

Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:The number 2 Hot Orange Syclops is the best pike lure I have ever used. This lure is ALWAYS tied onto one of my rods when me and my fishing buddies are fishing our favorite U.P. lakes. I bought the number 2 which worked great, next year I'm going to try the number 3 which will hopefully attract the bigger pike. My only complaint would be the hooks, I replace the original hooks with sharper ones, which is no big deal. The Hot Orange is definitely a great color for pike. I also had some luck with the gold color, but the Hot Orange is the one that is always tied on. Thank you Mepps for a GREAT lure.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye
Testimonial:I have fished the Syclops for so long I don't remember using any other spoon. The Syclops can be casted, jigged or trolled. It is deadly throgh the ice or casting for bass. The #00 is excelent for crappie and trout and the #1 and #2 is promising for bass, walleye and other larger fish. I dont think you can fish this spoon wrong, just put it in the water and pull them out. Silver, gold and the black-and-white are good colors. The colored spoons are good with single hooks with a Mister Twister Grub.

Fish Caught:Redfish
Testimonial:Others had reported the fishing slow, but, we were soon into an amazing day of fishing. We caught redfish, speckled sea trout, lady fish, flounder and a number of other fish species that I haven't yet identified. All were caught on the gold or silver Syclops saltwater lure. A great product... I will have them next trip and would recommend them to anyone.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I went out after work on October 24th to fish for Northern. I caught a few nice northern but to my surprise I caught more than 10 largemouth bass. The largest bass was 3lbs with several being over 2 lbs. The strikes were aggressive and I didn't miss a fish. I am impressed.

Fish Caught:Salmon, Chinook (king)
Testimonial:I purchased a Hot Orange/Chartreuse size #2 two days ago, Sept 3, 2012 and went fishing for salmon last night, around 8pm. On the Third Cast, I hooked a 16lb Chinook length was 31-32".

I tried many lures from Pixies to other Great Lures for 3 weeks, caught not a darn thing, then this lure on the Third Cast produced a fish, a wonderful fish.

I also puchased a few other syclops a Glow Blue/White and a Glow Pink/White and also a Blue/with silver sticker on it, i tried the blue/ silver sticker and caught nothing yet. I have yet to try the Glow models.

I was the only one out of 18 ppl fishing there last night to pull a fish and guess what no one had this lure color and wham bam thank you mame for me.
Keep up the good work Mepps

Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye
Testimonial:The Syclops lure year after year proves to be the TOP lure in my tackle box. I used to use only orange, but have recently found that experimenting with different colors has a huge reaction to fish strikes depending on the weather, water temp, etc. This past June in Canada, Northern were chasing the orange, but slamming the silver Syclops. It made for a wonderful trip and an addition to my wall with 38" Northern with a 16" Girth. Thank You Mepps!

Testimonial:I live in Chicago, we have been to the Mepps store for a great tour last year. I'm a believer in Mepps and always use them. On our recent trip to the Adirondacks, I caught several fish smallmouth, perch and several northerns all using Mepps. I have converted several local fishermen to using Mepps it's a great product made by great people in Antigo.
