Despite the fact that it is the best hellgrammite that one can be able to find anywhere, the Minster Twister TwisterMite won’t do you any good in situations where the fish is not feeding. Fish usually needs to be enticed in situations where the bite gets tough. Here is where a Mepps spinner comes into play.
Mepps spinners are not designed to imitate anything and this makes them very different. Mepps spinners usually get the fish to eat by simply appealing to the fish’s survival instincts. “I don’t know what that is, but it’s invading my territory and I’m going to kill it.” Or, “Look at that. I can have some fun with that.”
So how is this done by the spinner? Well, it’s very simple. Vibrations and splash are used by spinners to attract fish. The source of the vibration, as well as the flash, is the revolving blade. This is the only fishing lure known to posses this unique feature.
This simple fact gives Mepps Spinners the ability to catch fish in areas where another lure will not be able to do so. To well explain how a Mepps Spinner works let’s look at this example. If you have ever played with a cat then you will have noticed that if you feed a cat all the food that it wants it will stop eating and might even go to sleep but if you happen to tie a toy to a string, the same cat will wake up and strike the toy. The cat here is not hungry but simply being enticed to strike. That’s exactly how Mepps spinner work, the fish sees it and it can’t help but go on the attack.
