Mepps bucktails and marabous were voted America's favorite musky bucktail by the readers of Musky Hunter magazine.
The Mepps Giant Killer is an extremely versatile big-game lure that is effective in both fresh and saltwater. Bucktail and tandem bucktail Giant Killers, as well as the Giant Killer Mino are top producers of musky and northern pike. They also will catch striped bass and other saltwater predators. Plain Giant Killers are perfect for trophy king salmon.
This classic Mepps has always been a great producer of large fish because it’s so well suited for water depths of four to 12 feet. Big musky and trophy northern pike are found in these depths all summer long.
All Mepps Giant Killers feature a premium extra sharp, heavy-duty 5/0 hook, and produce a very definite vibration when retrieved. Tandem Giant Killers feature a premium extra sharp, heavy-duty 5/0 hook and heavy-duty 3/0 trailer hook.
Plain and Bucktail Giant Killers weigh 1-1/4 ounces. The Giant Killer Mino features a 4" airbrushed Mino and weighs 1-1/2 ounces. Tandem Giant Killers weigh 1-3/4 ounces. Regardless of which model you select, the Giant Killer’s heavy blade and solid brass body make long casts possible with little effort.
