Steve Heiting, editor of Musky Hunter magazine is an excellent musky fisherman. As a member of the Mepps Field Staff, Steve was very influential in the design of the Giant Killer Sassy Shad.
"I really like this lure, Steve comments. It's a bucktail and swimbait in one lure. To put it simply... This lure is hot!"

Fish Caught: Musky
I love fishing for muskies with bucktails. I had been reading about a trend in musky fishing - soft body lures. When I went to my favorite fishing store and saw the Mepps Giant Killer Sassy Shad, I knew that this lure had to work. The first day I used it, I hooked a 38" musky on Lost Land Lake in a spot that I have never even had a bite!
My friends on our trip decided to purchase a couple Giant Killer Sassy Shads. The next day out, my friend, Rick, was using the gold blade version. He got a knot in his reel and as he was fixing it with his lure dangling about three feet above the water, a very nice northern jumped out of the water to get his lure but missed it!
On the last day of our trip, I had to go back and fish the spot where I caught the musky, still using my Giant Killer Sassy Shad. I had another nice musky on but I lost this one.
This year when we return, I already know what lure will be on when we hit the same spot as the year before - the Mepps Giant Killer Sassy Shad!
