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).
The Min Min lights are famous in aboriginal folk lore, and we chose MinMin as the name for our fishing 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
MinMin has a realistically contoured baitfish profile and a vigorous action.
Trolling or casting
Good for trolling across shallow sandflats for flathead, skimming weed beds, or casting in streams for trout.
Hardware upgradeFitted with #10 hooks as standard, MinMin can carry #8's for a better hook up rate on larger-mouthed species.
This little fishing lure is reliable for collecting your blue water live baits. Troll around bommies or shallow reef patches and it will get hit by bonito, tailor, and slimy mackerel, to name a few.
The lighter your line, the better it performs. We like fine gel spun line which transmits vibrations better than nylon.
