Testimonial:I have two Black Fury baits that I bought in the 70's. I still use them today in bass tournaments. After retiring from teaching and fishing bass tournaments for 31yrs, I still find them to be a very productive bait. I now fish the Bassmaster opens. This year as a co angler but not again. I will fish as a pro next year. I have nine sponsors.
Mepps has been an intrigal part of my many wins and top ten finishes over the long career. I still fish these same two when the situation calls for it. My son uses them now and I've allowed him to as I taught him secrets to using them. He is as hooked on them as I've been over all these years and loves catching bass on them.
Great product. Long lasting. Fish catching. Easy to use. Very versatile bait. Has worked for me in all conditions over time.

Testimonial:I bought the lure being a little skeptical seeing not very many reviews or product testing; even on YouTube there wasn't much. I bought the Black Fury in sizes 1,2 and 3. The number 2 & 3 are awesome! It's almost every other cast you'll get something on the Black Fury. The catch was almost 3lbs and I just recently caught an 8lb largemouth. It's an awesome lure and is a fish magnet. A must have for anybody who loves to throw a lure around.

Testimonial:Whenever I go out fishing anywhere I always make sure I carry AT LEAST 2 Black Fury's dressed. My personal preference is Black/Chartreuse in a #5. I have caught countless Northerns on these (and I only retire them after the paint and stickers are mostly shredded off by teeth marks). I currently have 3 of them with all of the paint stripped off and another on the way. They produce bar none. I had a fishing competition just this past week. Fishing was real rough as only 4 Northerns were caught. 3 of them were by me with the Black Fury. I have never gone out with this lure and not caught a fish. I am amazed at the successfulness of this lure and highly recommend it to all of my friends and anyone else who is reading this! Mepps has my loyalty and money for life!

Testimonial:Out breaking in new boat for first time with wife and son. Stopped and casted a Black Fury in 10 feet of water. First fish was a nice smallmouth that I released about 5 feet from the boat as it jumped and danced on the water!!!!!!!!! LOL. Boated two more and released. Wife caught several rock bass and son, well, he caught a cray fish and a small clam!!!!!!! He was using a Black Fury too. I guess they do catch anything!!!!!

Thanks Mepps

Testimonial:I have found that Black Furies work amazingly well in two situations: In and around rocky shorelines and reeling them fast over spawning fish. I caught nearly a ten pound largemouth last year right next to a rocky shore.

Testimonial:I have often said that most largemouth bass anglers spend a lifetime hoping to catch at least one that weighs 5 lbs., or more. Yesterday, I was "lucky" enough to catch 4 that weighed a total of 29 lbs., 15 ounces, with the larger one being 9 lbs., 5 ounces, and the "smaller" one 5 lbs., and 15 ounces. But "the big one got away'! I hooked one which I brought to the boat, and just as I reached for what looked to be a 10 + pound fish he broke the swivel, and left with my Black Fury lure. Mepps lures are the best for crappie, and bass!!

Testimonial:First time ever fishing with this lure. This evening I caught my largest bass of my lifetime at roughly 23in. which state record is 23.5in. I'm impressed and will definitely be using Mepps more often. I'm hooked.

Kendall

Location:Cedar Creek, Oregon, Oregon
Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Steelhead
Testimonial:So, it was a thunderstorm kind of day; warm, rainy, sunbreaks, typical. I decided, hey, I'm gunna head down to Cedar and see if I can get me a fish or two. I had bought 2 Bluefox MJ's #4 knowing that with those I was going to get something. I get down to the river about 6:30pm, not as many people, so that was going good. There was one guy fishing where I wanted to fish, so, I just went down stream 15 yards or so. First cast, snag my brand new spinner up, put on my other MJ and continue casting and I make it about 15 casts before I lose that spinner. I used two more Bluefoxs in the process, losing a total of 4 spinners. There's a lot of line out in the water. So, I look in my tackle and see I have a Black Fury spinner #3 and I say what the heck.. 3 casts in, and a few prayers, and I thought I snagged up on some line again, next thing I know a huge fish is jumping out of the water and I'm thinking, whoa, looks like a fish. Then I realize I have the fish on. Yahooo!!! I landed that baby she weighed just over 11 lbs and had eggs. It was chrome and beautiful. Thank you Mepps.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:This lure works fantastic in deep rocky water where visibility is low. It retrieves smoothly and casts perfectly (as in weight). I use the No. 2 mainly and catch about 8 trout per day in the 9-11" inch range. The dressed lures even attract 2-3 lb. bass in at times. Overall a great lure made by the best in the business.

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial: I was fishing with a group of guys who never saw a Black fury combo killer before and asked if they really work?, Using a #3 Chartreuse Dot and the supplied Mister Twister I hooked a nice 4.5lb Largemouth after only about 20 minutes, now they know.

Fish Caught:Musky
Testimonial:I was fishing with my father when I saw the musky. Well, I threw on a whole assortment of lures, but, only my Mepps spinners were coaxing it. So, finally I threw on a Black Fury and bam! 4-foot monster.

Testimonial:I am a huge fan of the lime green(chartreuse dot) colored #3 Black Fury spinner. When I look back at all of the fish I have caught recently, 90% of them have been caught using the Black Fury. I love this lure! It is the only lure in my tackle box and I will go in after it I lose it on a snag (speaking from experience!!) I have even converted one of my non-believer friends into using them. I guess he finally got tired of watching me catch all the fish while he got skunked. Please, please, please NEVER STOP MAKING THIS LURE!!!! Thank you for such a great product and all of the joy it has given me in my fishing adventures!!

Sincerely,
Jordan

Testimonial:The Aglia might be my spinner during the day, but, when it comes to low light evenings or overcast days where there is little sunlight, I go to the Black Fury. Yellow and florescent red are my faves. Just throw it and reel it in. It catches anything. Thanks, Mepps, you are my number one lure.

Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth
Testimonial:Um, well, I happened along the Black Fury by accident really. Although I only have 4x 16' bass in my freezer, in the last 1.5 months, I have caught more than 60 Smallmouth Bass ranging from 6" up to 16". I have two severely abused Black Furry lures(#4's) with paint chipping off, and The fish honestly will not leave it alone. Wish I had a camera to show what I'm saying. I have never had this much fun fishing.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bowfin
Testimonial:My dad, brother and I have fished a small pond that feeds in and out of a creek for about 4 years now. We had been fishing with just a worm and bobber for about 3 of them and only caught carp, bullheads, sunfish, and the occasional small bass. Then, this year we tried some old Mepps that my dad had and I could not believe the results! We usually use a Mepps #3 in any lighter color because of the muddy water. But, everytime we use the Mepps, we catch the most and biggest bass we have ever seen out of such a small creek. We, today, caught about 15 1-3 pound bass in just about 2 hours! Such a great lure! Thanks Mepps company! I have never seen a lure so good!

Testimonial:I'm ten years old I was fishing with mom,dad,and grandpa. We were fishing a lake called Horse Head. On our third stop I started getting small bites on my 6th cast there was an explosive hit I reeled the line up to the boat and there was a northern on my line. Mepps this is an awesome lure.

Henry

Product:Black Fury
Testimonial:Me and my dad were fishing the Wisconsin River. When my dad saw a muskie, he tied a spinner on and tried to hook it by the tail to try to get it in, but, the Muskie had other ideas it turned and grabbed the spinner and went. Three minutes went by, but, the muskie spit it out and swam up river I tied on a Black Fury and casted up river where the Muskie went for, cast it struck it was on practically all the to the shore, when it spit out the lure straight at me I dodged. I'm glad I didn't lose the lure though.

Location:Leven River, Loongana, Tasmania, Australia
Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Trout, Brown
Testimonial:Headed off to the upper reaches of the Leven River this morning to fish above the Loongana Bridge which is still open as it is classed as Rainbow waters. Beautiful morning when I left home, sunshine and very little breeze, the perfect start to the day. When I arrived at Loongana, some 86kms from home, it was a different story. Quite a lot of cloud cover on and off and a very cold westerly wind, plus the odd light sprinkle of rain to top it off. The river had a nice amount of water flowing and was very tannin in colour, so decided to go to a little larger Mepps than I normally use. On with a #0 (2.5gm) Gold Black Fury and off I went. Certainly glad I had the thermals on as the river was like ice.
Was only on the forth cast and had a hook-up, and it was a nice solid medium sized brown and the colours of this fish were brilliant too. A quick photo and back it went, worked my way upstream for another 500mtrs or so and did not have a hit or a follow, so time to move further upstream. Drove up a few kms and took a little track that ran off to the left this led me down to an old wooden bridge and over the river to a nice little reserve. Started working my way upstream once again and after 20-30minutes of slipping and sliding along, I finally hooked another solid little brown which also had it's photo taken and then released. Fished on for another few hundred meters before calling it a day. And though I could only catch 2 browns from the only two hits I had, it was a fairly reasonble few hours on the Leven River. I doubt that I shall return again until the next season around Jan - Feb 2013, we'll see how it fishes then. The Mepps Black Fury once again showed how good they were as without them, I doubt that I may have caught a fish. Cheers from " The Mepps Spinfishing Guru of Tasmania"

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I just got back from my annual fishing trip to lake of the woods. Before the trip I picked up a couple of the the Black Furys with the all yellow dots and yellow dressing. It was the first lure I put on when we got started going casting for bass and pike, and it's the only lure I used the whole trip! I caught fish steady with it and eventually had to cough over one of them to my dad so he could keep up! Great lure.

Fish Caught:Crappie (Black)
Testimonial:My friend and I were fishing around 1 p.m. in the afternoon in early May 2012 on a private pond in Pickaway County, OH. I was using a Black Fury #2 and was fishing around downed tree limbs and an old oak stump. I caught a 13 & 14 inch Black Crappie with the Black Fury #2. I would recommend this lure to anyone who likes to catch big fish. It's definitley convinced me to buy more of these type of lures. This was the biggest Crappie I've ever caught.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Crappie (Black)
Testimonial:I fish ponds & at the lake from shore. I've been fishing from shore all my life. I use the chartreuse blade with chartreuse tail. It's the best bass & craippie lure ever. I use the orange blade & tail on clear days. I use Mepps to find bass & craippie fast, then I go to worms. Keep up the great work Mepps Company.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:This lure is awesome. I was slaying bass with this. I caught a 15.5 incher and a 14 incher with around 10 minutes in between each other. It was the fluorescent orange with Black in a size 3 blade. These were the first two considerable fish I've ever caught on an artificial lure. I'm 13 and I beg my dad to take me fishing every weekend in the summer. Thanks, Mepps!

Testimonial: HAVE USED THE BLACK FURY FOR MANY YEARS, GREAT LURE, HARDLY LETS ME DOWN. PICKEREL LOVE IT BURNED. ALTHOUGH I REALLY LIKE THIS LURE, IT IS NOT MY ALL TIME FISH CATCHER, THAT LURE WOULD BE THE ACME KASTMASTER. I USE ALL SILVER TYPE THE MOST, COME IN GOLD, & OTHER COLORS. BUT MEPPS SPINNERS ARE A GREAT LURE. MANY A TRIP HAS BEEN SAVED BY THEM. A GREAT LURE THAT I WOULD TELL EVERY FISHERMAN TO BUY AND USE. JEFF COSTIGAN.
