  M50 MinMin (shallow)
Origin of the name MinMin
MinMin is a western Queensland aboriginal word meaning will-o'-the-wisp; "anything which deludes or misleads by luring on" (Macquarie Dictionary). We think that's appropriate.

The MinMin lights are famous in aboriginal folk lore. It was a natural choice to name our lure because of its meaning, Australian aboriginal heritage, and connotation of small size.

"These bite-sized lures are perfect for bream spinning in small, snaggy creeks. MinMins come in a wide variety of colours. I like the pink ones but find more natural colours work well, especially in clear water."

Jim Harnewell, Editor, "Fishing World Magazine"

Baitfish shape
MinMin has a realistically contoured baitfish profile and a vibrant action.

Trolling or casting
Good for trolling across shallow sandflats for flathead, skimming weed beds, or casting in streams for trout.

Hardware upgrade
Fitted with #10 hooks as standard, MinMin can carry #8's for a better hook up rate on larger mouthed species.

Marlin baits!
This lure is reliable for collecting your blue water live baits. Troll around bommies or shallow reef patches and it will get hit.

Line size
The lighter your line, the better it performs. We like fine gel spun line which transmits vibrations better than nylon.

Tropical Perch (TP)
As an irrigation impoundment, Lake Copeton's water level varies dramatically. Best fishing occurs when water rises rapidly over land exposed for months or years - giving a rich harvest of invertebrates. Small lures like the MinMin excel at these times in the shallows.
