The Comet Mino is one of Mepps most popular lures. It will catch just about any fish that swims. Bassmaster magazine named the Comet Mino one of the 10 best bass lures of all time. All Comet Minos are carefully airbrushed to ensure realism. Their erratic swimming action makes them appear to be a wounded bait fish.
Comet Minos come in sizes #00 through #5. A #00 is an Ultra Lite spinner. In fact, you can get the #5 Comet Mino with either a 3" or 4" Mino.
Comet Minos are perfect for casting or trolling. Gold blades are polished brass. Silver blades are genuine silver plated. Painted blades feature a proprietary blend of epoxy and acrylic finishes. All Mepps Comet Minos run at mid-depth.
The image you see behind the lure is a picture of the actual sound waves created by that particular lure.
To hear how your Mepps spinner sounds as it’s being pulled through the water place your cursor over the lure photo.
The #3 Mepps Comet Mino blade produces a sound similar to the #3 Aglia blade with a couple of exceptions. Because the Comet blade spins closer to the body of the spinner, the Comet blade produces a sound with a slightly lower pitch than the Aglia blade. The Comet blade also spins just a bit faster than the Aglia blade, so the steady series of "thumps" the blade produces during the retrieve are closer together. The sounds these blades produce are similar, but, by listening to one right after the other you will hear a definite difference.

These blades may produce similar sounds, but, listen carefully and you will have no problem hearing a definite difference.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernI was stationed near Madrid, Spain for 6 years with the U.S. Air Force. I used to go to 3 three bodies of water near each other. All three were on the way to Zaragoza, north of Madrid, nesr the city of Guadalajara. My chief and I were out on a rubber dingy going back and forth between the river and the lake. We were both using Comet Minos and in the course of 4 hours we each caught 12 Northern Pikes apiece. That is one of my best fishing memories. Sadly, the particular Mino's hook rotted out but the plastic body is still good. Are there replacement hooks for them. I'd like to rehook it and give it a place of honor on the retired shelf. Thanks for a great product. My first ever testimonial. I still have some Mepps lures and the mini tackle box they came in that I purchased in the mid 1980s. Some are pretty beat up but still combat ready! :)
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Sunfish (shellcracker)I bought the Mepps Rainbow trout Comet Mino on Saturday 4/23 and I went fishing 4/24. I went to a spot I never caught fish at. I was really just using it to shake the rust off and it was a real open spot so I wouldn't get tangled or caught on anything. So I get there and there are three other people fishing. I ask "Hey, you guys catch anything" They said "No we haven't" They were there an hour before me. So I set up shop and I cast out "bam" big sunfish, probably the biggest I ever caught. Then, I cast out two more times, bam! Caught a largemouth bass. These guys were looking at me upset and asked what I was using, I told them. I ended up catching 5 total on the day at a spot I never caught fish at before.
Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthI have been sick for six months. Coming from the doctor, all I had was my trout tackle in the car. I put on a Mepps Comet Mino on my ultra lite trout rod and caught a 2 1/2# Largemouth Bass. After being sick and missing half the season, just catching one bass made my day.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Blue - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Trout, Brook - Trout, RainbowI am 53 and have been fishing Mepps spinners since I was 4 years old from as far north as Fairbanks, Alaska, to as far south as Oakville, Texas. When it seems that nothing is biting, the Mepps Comet Minos sizes 00, 1, 2, or 3, always save the day as do the Aglia with squirrel tails. I saw my father catch Salmon and Grayling on Mepps while I have caught Largemouth Bass, Smallmouth bass, Spotted Bass, Guadalupe Bass, Rainbow Trout, Brook Trout, Green Sunfish, Longear Sunfish, Redear Sunfish, Redspotted Sunfish, Warmmouth, Rock Bass, White and Black Crappie, Blue Catfish, Channel Catfish, and once a silver shad. I have caught panfish barely larger than the lure to Bass over 4 pounds. All the Mepps products are winners. They are fantastic.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, RainbowI felt compelled to give a testimonial on the "go-to" lure in my tackle box, the Mepps Comet Mino. I have been fishing with this lure for 35 years and it never fails to catch fish when nothing else will. I have caught many species including: Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, Perch, Trout, and Crappie. It works in ponds, rivers, lakes, and streams. In short, if I only had 1 lure to fish with, it would be the Mepps Comet Mino! Thank you for all your quality products!
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - WalleyeTo sum up this spinner anything that will feed on shad or minnows will hit a Mepps Comet Mino.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernAs ridiculous as this lure looks it has caught more northerns than any other lure in my tackle box. The spinning blade attracts them while the body provides something for them to home in on so the northerns rarely miss. I used one with a #3 silver blade because that was the biggest one I could find and it caught fish. I recently ordered a big one with a #5 gold blade because I have had good luck with gold and I'm glad I did. Thanks Mepps!
Fish Caught: Bass, SmallmouthThe water was getting really low and really clear. Therefore getting harder to catch fish. So, I went to one of my favorite spots along the Schuylkill River and I casted a size 1 Comet Mino. Before this, I never caught a fish on it and was still to be convinced. On the second cast, I got him. He gave a pretty good fight for his size. He came out to be around 10 inches. It may not seem big, but its average for the river I fish. Also, it's not the size that counts, but the fun you have reeling it in.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Perch, YellowThis is the best lure ever. I have them in all sizes, even a few that used to belong to my dad. They have the best feel in the water, you can tell when a fish is even thinking about eating it. I will have this lure in my box 'til I'm in one.
