Bob – Brunswick Hills, Ohio

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White

The silver with red is money. I fish this at the dock in the morning and afternoon before and after walleye fishing on Lake Erie. I can remember only one time I didn't catch a bass of some type. The guy I fish with on Lake Erie was so impressed with it that he had to have one. He also has a lot of success with it.

I lost one after a giant sheepshead slammed it at the dock. broke my line and took off with the lure. Had to buy another one and upgraded the line so it didn't happen again.

Anthony Boschi – Merritt Island, Florida, Florida

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

My Gold Syclops promptly arrived today and I caught numerous Seatrout. The lure casts perfectly and works really well.

Ray Feldwick – Tampa Bay, Florida

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Redfish - Trout, Sea/Speckled

The salt water Syclops is an amazing all species lure. The 8 gram and 12 gram lures in both gold and silver are my go to bait on the Tampa Bay flats. Throw along the mangroves to catch redfish and snook. Cast in 3 to 5 feet over grass and use a steady retrieve to catch speckled sea trout, blue fish, Spanish mackerel, jacks and more. Jig the small syclops to catch pompano and snappers.

My grandchildren love catching lady fish, a poor mans tarpon. At 12 to 16 inches, they hit hard and put up a leaping fight guaranteed to excite children and get them into fishing. You can fish a school of these fish and easily catch 50 per person.

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern

I used the blue platinum Syclops #2. I caught 3 pike between 24-34" and a decent sized largie all within 30 mins. Best fishing day of the year.

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Mepps Syclops hands down is the BEST Lure to use on Rainy Lake. It outperforms everything else and catches multiple species of fish. I've caught several trophy Northern over the years on this bait. I prefer size #3.

Tyler – Valley, Nebraska

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye

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.

Josh White – Beaver Dam River, Lowell, Wisconsin

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, White - Pike, Northern - Walleye

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.

Jim Fritz – Ear Falls , Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

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.

Duncan Campbell – Grand Lake, New Brunswick , Cayman Islands

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pickerel

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.

Graham – Erie Canal, Brantford Ontario, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

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.

Jeff – West Branch Lake, Upper Peninsula, Michigan

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

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.

Joshua Murrow – North East Kansas, Kansas

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

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.

Will Knapp – Corpus Christi Bay , Texas

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Redfish

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.

Mike Skenadore – Legend Lake, Keshena,, Wisconsin

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern

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.

Steve – St. Marys River Power Dam, Sault Ste Marie, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

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

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake, Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

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!

Thomas Winger – Oseetah Lake, Saranac Lake, New York

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

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.
