Mepps bucktails and marabous were voted America's favorite musky bucktail by the readers of Musky Hunter magazine.
The Mepps Musky Marabou features a top quality, heavy-duty #7 Colorado blade and a rugged easy-spin clevis. Solid brass components mean every Musky Marabou is perfectly balanced and extremely durable.
Other features include a heavy-duty split ring for easy marabou tail change. The split ring also eliminates the leverage a big fish can exert on straight-wire musky lures.
All tails are hand-tied with the highest grade of marabou feathers for outstanding durability and lifelike movement. Mepps time-tested tandem hook assembly incorporates heavy-duty extra sharp treble hooks. The Musky Marabou, with its easy-spin low-drag blade, can easily be cast all day long. In addition, its drag-resistant high-flow marabou tail gives the Mepps Musky Marabou more lift and lifelike movement. Retrieve it at a medium to high speed, bulged just under the surface or burned over the top of weeds.

The #7 Colorado blade on the Musky Marabou produces a hard audible "thump" as it's pulled though the water. In addition, this Colorado blade produces a pitch higher than any other blade we tested in its size-class. This is understandable, considering the Colorado blade spins further out from the body of the spinner than any other blade Mepps uses. Also this blade weighs 8.5 grams. making it just a little lighter than either the #7 Aglia blade used on the Mepps Magnum Musky Killer, or the #6 Aglia Long blade on the Mepps Giant Killer. Both these blades weigh 10 grams. Because the Colorado blade is slightly lighter and it spins out and away from the Musky Marabou's body, this lure can be retrieved at a medium to high speed, bulged just under the surface or burned over the top of weeds. It's no wonder the Musky Marabou, with its pulsating marabou tail, is a favorite of trophy bass, pike and musky fishermen worldwide.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, NorthernI have used many inline spinners and was going to start building my own because most musky spinners use a regular skirt or tinsel, I decided to try the Mepps Musky Marabou in Hot Firetiger(orange yellow and green.) Much to my surprise musky wasn't the only fish we caught with it, we caught plenty of pike on it also, but the biggest surprise was when I caught 4 largemouth in 4 consecutive casts and the smallest was 3-1/2 pounds and the largest was just over 6lb; for Illinois waters that is a rare fish on a bait for musky!!! After that day, I set my mind not to buy all the components to make my own cause the Musky Marabou is what I would use as a template, maybe when I get some free time I may build some, but for now my 16 Musky m
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, NorthernNever been a big fan of bucktails as they have never produced as well as some other baits. I had to try a Musky Marabou 'cause of how fluffy it looked in the package. I bought one to try and now I have basically every Musky Marabou Mepps makes. I like to troll over the weeds with the Marabou and have caught a ton of largemouth over 5lbs???? Who would have thought largemouth would attack the Musky Marabou, but, they do; and, there all monster bass no small guys with this lure. it also has caught me more northern than I can count, the largest being 45-inches, and we have only got a couple of smaller 35 or so inch musky, go figure the Musky Marabou has caught me some of my biggest bass and pike and only a couple of smaller musky. Once the big musky start to come a little shallow late in the season, I'm sure that will change! Thanks Mepps, but I think you need to re-name the Musky Marabou to the predator Marabou 'cause it catches all the predators.
Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, NorthernThe Mepps Musky Marabou is one of the most productive lures day-in and day-out in my boat. As a full-time musky guide, I need lures in my arsenal that I can count on to produce fish, even under the most adverse of circumstances - the Musky Marabou does just that! While the bait works well from opener through fall, it really seems to be at it's peak during the summer months when worked on a medium to fast retrieve - use a quick crank of the reel handle several times during the retireve to get the marabou to really pulsate, and hang on as a monster pike or musky hammers it!
Fish Caught: Bass, StripedHello, Jim, Michael and the entire Mepps sales and distro team. I want to thank you for providing excellent yearly press releases combined with monthly newsletters. These efforts are what is the patient and appreciated job related duties and work related criteria all industry companies should be following and executing. The lack of these efforts by other industry manufacturers and distro/media companies are the main reason why the industry is in an economic downward spiral and the excuse of the nationwide economic downturn is not the scapegoat most are using.The entire Mepps Team's enthusiasm and support for anglers, sporting goods and most of all each other relate in the catches and consistant intrest many anglers still have when it comes to catching fish in both fresh and saltwater fisheries. I am proud to say that the Marabou and large Tiger Musky Marabous acquired years back were field tested in the lower branch channel of the Delaware River by a selected and historic fishing and Gun Club member known as Lenny Rychychowski. This club is dated back into the 1800's and Lenny's proficiency in angling is exceptional. The sad thing here in New Jersey is water polution, clarity and most of all the unlikely sportsmanlike fish care and fishing pressure which has been adding to a shortage in population of many species of fish. Limits and on most adventures and guides any catches are far and in between....however, the Tiger Musky Marabou and the Large sized Marabous combined with most any spinners from Mepps Gallery of a wide variety of glossy, gleaming and feathered trimmed lures which I call Chicken lures...well...Lenny caught many a Striped Bass and a heck of alot of limits of Bass and many species of panfish including perch and bowfin on a wide array of great Aglia lures from Mepps.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, NorthernI have only been into musky fishing for a couple of years and this lure was the best one I have used to date. I started musky fishing at 10 years old and always look forward to opening morning. I caught my first musky on a yellow, green and orange tail(Firetiger). This fish measured 39" and is still one of the biggest fish I have ever caught.
Fish Caught: MuskyI've been fishing for musky on a lake known for big fish since I was 13. I am now 33 and just caught my first musky. I tried all other bucktails and lures with no result. I just recently got a Mepps Musky Marabou and suddenly I had A 50 inch monster boat side . Despite the power of a 50 inch musky on a summer day, I found the lures were durable and continued to use it the rest of the day without even any adjustment. Another thing I liked about the lure was it was easily removed from the fish allowing her to fight another day. That was the best day fishing yet!
Fish Caught: MuskyIn one day me and my dad both had success catching Muskys on this bucktail. My dad caught the first on a white one with a silver blade and weighed in at 8lbs. About 45 minute,later I caught one using a black with a gold blade that weighed in at15lbs. I would highly recommend this lure to anyone wanting to catch a trophy Musky, and I have caught many Northern Pike on it as well.
Fish Caught: MuskyI have used Mepps spinners since I was a child. In the last 20 years I have been Musky fishing but have drifted away from the Mepps line and used other spinners. This past August, I came back to the Mepps line in a BIG way! On our annual fishing expedition to Canada, my partner gave me one of his Mepps Musky Marabou spinners to try. I boated 3 Muskies that day! A 50+ incher, a 35 and 46incher on the Musky Marabou spinner. In fact, the largest musky bent the spinner 90 degrees between the upper and lower treble hooks and was still hooked good all the way into the net!
