Location:Private Pond, Kansas
Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:It was another tough, tough day at a private pond near my in-laws. The conditions couldn't have been worse and after 1.5hrs and only 3 fish to my name...I was ready to throw in the towel. I threw just about every lure I could think of that would work in shallow weedy conditions and was ready to throw in the towel until I remembered how easily it was to keep an Aglia right above the weeds in this shallow water.

I started throwing a Silver Dressed Aglia #4 and caught a fish on the very first catch. To prove it wasn't a fluke, I went from catching 3 fish in an hour and a half to 20 Largemouth Bass per hour and even a couple of hawgs. I don't know what it is about this lure, but this is definitely not the first time this lure has saved my fishing day.

Exact same situation December 2014. I caught absolutely nothing in nearly 2hrs and my Silver Dressed Aglia #4 immediately began catching me 16x Largemouth bass per hour.

This is the real deal, folks!

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.

Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)
Testimonial:I've caught many bass (and other fish) for many years on Mepps dressed Aglia lures.

One experience I recently had was a farm pond in SE KS. I fished for an hour in December and not a single bite. I put a Silver dressed Aglia #4 on my line and caught 16 largemouth bass in the next hour. 2 of which were easily over 4lbs.

It's a must-have lure for those tough days on the water.

Testimonial:I have been trolling spinners and crankbaits for 30 years. I have tried every spinner on the market. For 2 years I fished the pro bass circuit in the 70s. I fish at least 2 days a week. When you are tolling there is absoleutly nothing that will catch as many fish as the Mepps XD spinners. You need to use a ball bearing swivel and 10lb braid line or 8lb monofilament line. Saturday my son and I went fishing and caught one 5lb Walleye, 3 crappie over 12" and 19 white bass on these Mepps XD spinners. We also caught 12 hybrids that were an average of 2 lbs. And, we threw back 6 crappies over 11" long. The Mepps XD is the most reliable bait you can use while casting or trolling.

Product:Timber Doodle
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:Mepps spinners and spoons are excellent outside of brush and weeds. When it comes to dropping the bait inside of cover where the big ones hide thats when the Timber Doodle comes into play. Floating vegetation where you have to fish slop is where the Timber Doodle works best. Just cast it and drag it across the top and shake it in the open pockets and hang on. Sperotic weed beds won't hang it up and where there are logs and trees, use the 1/2 ounce and drag it on the bottom and short hop it like a bass jig. Dynomite addition to the Mepps line up.

Testimonial:I can't say enouph about the Aglia. I have cought many diffrent kinds of fish with this spinner. The Aglia will catch anything. This spring I have already caught hundreds of bass and haven't used hardly anything else.
I have already caught three award-winning trout for the Mepps Awards. Monster trout that weighs up to and including the three pound class. Last weekend I caught the biggest crappie of my life. A one pound nine ounce white crappie out of a farm pond. I will have a pick up soon in the picture section on this site. I have used Mepps for over twenty years (about 1989) and love and respect anything Mepps puts out there. This spinner can run at almost any depth as long as you retrive it slow enouph to turn the blades and you can run it as low as five to eight feet. I use the 1/4 ounce #3 for bass and trout,#0 and #1 for crappie and other panfish, #5 for large bass and carp... anything really big. I have been a fan and always will be forever. Mepps is a part of my life and thats something I will never regret.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye
Testimonial:I have fished the Syclops for so long I don't remember using any other spoon. The Syclops can be casted, jigged or trolled. It is deadly throgh the ice or casting for bass. The #00 is excelent for crappie and trout and the #1 and #2 is promising for bass, walleye and other larger fish. I dont think you can fish this spoon wrong, just put it in the water and pull them out. Silver, gold and the black-and-white are good colors. The colored spoons are good with single hooks with a Mister Twister Grub.

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.

Product:Timber Doodle
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:The Timber Doodle has ben around for over twenty years for one reason. It simpaly catches fish. Throw it in the weeds, trees logs or fish it in slop. You can't go wrong. Fish it like a bass jig hoping it off the bottom and it's dynomite. Thanks again Mepps for years of pleasure.

Testimonial:What does the Aglia "not" catch? I have caught everything from bluegill, crappie, bass and even a few rainbow trout for Mepps awards. The Aglia plain catches everything that swims.

Testimonial:I have not been shut out using this lure. I have had two of these lures one black tail with yellow dots and one black tail with the different tinted green dots(Hot Firetiger) and both have been quite successful in landing nice size fish.

Testimonial:I'm a long-time Mepps fisherman. Just recently tried the Thunder Bug line. I'm catching an astonishing number of panfish on the Cricket color (dark gray), both single and treble hooks, both plain and dressed. Can't wait to try the other colors.

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Catfish, Channel
Testimonial:Every year I catch channel catfish on various Mepps spinners. Catfish bait fisherman can't believe it. One day I got to Atchison SFL early. There was a guy sitting on a picnic table, had been camping. I walked up and caught a nice 5lb channel on my first cast. He walked over to some other campers and said "did you see that guy catch a catfish on his first catch? I've been fishing all night without even a nibble." You never know what fish will hit a Mepps.

Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:I've caught many a Bass with the Aglia Dressed spinners and I always keep several spares in case a tree limb gets in my way.

My brother, Jim, always said my Mepps weren't any better than other spinners 'til the time my brother and I were fishing in Foss Lake in Oklahoma and I was catching bass after bass - Finally he asked if I had another like it and I said it was the only one like it I had - Good day for me but he got no fish - I finally convinced him Mepps really do catch more fish.... Enough said?

Product:XD
Fish Caught:Bluegill (Bream, Brim)
Testimonial:I have been using Mepps spinners for as long as I have been fishing. If I had to go into the wilderness and bring just one lure to catch fish to survive on it would undoubtably be a Mepps spinner, and my first choice would be a Mepps XD spinner. The size 0 XD dressed is the best Bluegill lure ever and catches the BIGGEST bluegill of any lure I have tried. I've also caught some of my biggest trout and crappie on the XD spinner. I NEVER leave home without a good selection of XD's.

Testimonial:Now folks I've been fishing with Mepps Spinners since the early 1960's and they catch fish. I brag on My Mepps Spinners because they work. If you need one, either call Shep or call me because my tackle box is full of 'em and that is what's on my line. Mepps Spinners catch fish that is all there is to know.

Product:XD
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Walleye
Testimonial:I have been using Mepps spinners for over 25 years. My favorite fish are panfish (crappie, bluegill, white bass, redear sunfish, etc.) although I have caught my share of walleye and bass. I have found the XD spinners in size 0 dressed single or treble hook to be among the most deadly lures for large panfish. The brightly colored ones (firetiger) are particularly awesome. I basically fish them slow and steady, trying to keep the lure spinning just off the bottom. If I know the body of water I'm fishing has BIG panfish this is my go-to lure. In addition to the panfish I almost always catch a nice largemouth, walleye, or even channel catfish on these spinners. I don't ever leave home without them when I fish.
