Fish Caught:Pike, Northern

Product:Double Blade Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:My fishing partner Steve and I tried over ten other lures to catch pike we knew were in his lake. Once we found the Mepps Double Bladed Aglia black spoon with gold skirt we finally started catching instead of just fishing. Both of us have caught over 5 pike over 30 inches and I caught a 40 inch monster that I'm very proud of. The Mepps Double Blade by far has outperformed the rest of the lures on the market designed to catch these stealthy monsters. Our lake is small but the pike are huge if you can get em to bite and this bait has shown us both how me pis stands alone in a dependable lure. The pike we don't get to hit follow this lure all the way to the boat on many occasions. That in itself makes fishing exciting and interesting.
Thanks Mepos for making another fine lure.

Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Steelhead - Trout, Lake
Testimonial:Absolutely lights out when it comes to lake trout spawning in Lake Michigan. The lakers come in the shallows and they crush the #5 silver Mepps like it's their first meal they've ever seen! Time and time again, I've used them and I have caught more fish than anyone that fishes lake trout in the fall. Great product and great times!

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:I have been fishing with Mepps spinners since I was a kid and have caught hundreds of different fish on them! I caught my largest Large mouth Bass to date on a number 4 Aglia plain! It was a 20 inch fish and not sure of weight because I released it! Mepps does it again!

Product:Aglia Long
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I have used the Mepps #3 Aglia Long for 20 some years and it is the best lure I have ever used. In fact, it is the only lure that I have in my tackle box. The only problem is that you do not sell them anymore. However, you have a young lady that works in your sales office that took the time to find me some. I would like to thank Mary Golbach for all her effort in finding us some more of the best lure there is.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:The number 2 Hot Orange Syclops is the best pike lure I have ever used. This lure is ALWAYS tied onto one of my rods when me and my fishing buddies are fishing our favorite U.P. lakes. I bought the number 2 which worked great, next year I'm going to try the number 3 which will hopefully attract the bigger pike. My only complaint would be the hooks, I replace the original hooks with sharper ones, which is no big deal. The Hot Orange is definitely a great color for pike. I also had some luck with the gold color, but the Hot Orange is the one that is always tied on. Thank you Mepps for a GREAT lure.

Product:Black Fury
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.

Rod Scripter

Location:Muskegon River, Big Rapid's, Michigan
Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:I was fishing out of my Kayak N of Big Rapid's. I launched and casted approximately four times when I got hooked on a rock, the water was very swift and hard to turn my Kayak around. As my line got tighter, I reached for my pole to release my line when the rod popped out of my hand and into the river. I was struggling to paddle upstream and thought my fishing was over for the day. I managed to paddle up to my rod and could just barely see the reel with all the rippling water. I took my paddle and scooped the tip of rod up and grabbed the reel and released the bail, what a relief. I managed to get my lure, a #2 Aglia bucktail copper blade, and my favorite I may add, out of the rocks. Well, about 6 casts later, I landed an 18" 2-lb largemouth. Now, that is an up-and-down adventure.

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Crappie (Black)
Testimonial:The first time I used a Black Fury Dressed treble, I caught a Largemouth Bass. There have been days when this is the only lure that has produced. A #3 Flourescent Orange and #4 Yellow have been equally successful. To my surprise, I landed an 11 inch, 1+ pound Black Crappie using a #4 Yellow Black Fury. I had no clue that such large Crappie were in this pond.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:All I have to say is dang! It seems to me that my white Mepps is one of the greatest lures in my tackle box, it hasn't failed me yet, I consistently catch some great northerns on it, when all else fails, my Mepps doesn't let me down, it kills me inside anytime I lose one, this is by far one of my favorite lures, hands down one of the greatest ever made in my opinion.

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:The #5 Black Fury in black/chartreuse and black/fluorescent orange absolutely slayed the pike while we were camping. Pike didn't just hit the lure, they crushed it with wreckless abandon. My number one pike lure by far. I wish you had more colors because I've bought them all.

Austin

Location:Lake St Clair, Michigan
Product:Comet Mino
Fish Caught:Musky
Testimonial:I got two Mepps Comet Mino lures a size 2 and 4 both with silver blades. The next day I rode my bike to lake St Clair and fished I was fishing with worms and not getting much. So, I decided to do some casting. I was using the size 2 for largemouth or a small pike, but, on my third cast hooked in to a 38.5 inch musky. No leader, no net, and 8lb test. Being on the end of the pier, I had to walk it down to the rocks where I grabbed it, measured it and tried to weigh it, but, my scale bottomed out at 14lb. Wrecked the lure, but. it was worth it considering I got it for free. Plan on getting more. It's a great lure, you never know what you will get with it.

Thomas Arnold

Location:Local Gravel Pits, Michigan
Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth
Testimonial:This lure is, and was my secret weapon until I left it mistakenly on the shore. I, like the others, cannot find them anywhere. I ask at every small time bait shop, large stores such as Cabelas and Bass Pro Shops, and no one has a clue what lure I'm describing. Guess it's a good thing if no one knows about them.... it'll be my secret lol. On the Mepps site is the only place I know where to get them.

Bryon

Location:Warren, Michigan
Product:Aglia Long Ultra Lites
Fish Caught:Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:One of the best trout lures out there. I love the Mepps Ultra Lite series. For my money they're the best trout spinners on the market. I use these when the water is particularly fast because the willow blade lets the spinner runner deeper in the water than the normal french bladed Mepps Ultra Lites. I've caught all kinds of trout on these and always have at lest half a dozen of both silver and gold in my trout box at all times. Can't miss with these little gems.

Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I recently went fishing with my grandpa who has all the gear and tackle but not the most know-how. I told him how when whenever I go fishing we always use Mepps spinners #3 and it is very rare that we ever go fishing without catching something. He didn't believe me at first, but he had a lot of Mepps in his box he said his friend had given him but he thought they weren't worth anything. He started to throw one out and about 15 minutes later he was hooked. He caught a 32" northern the first time we went out. Now whenever I ask him what he's going to use I know its going to be some kind of Mepps and we always catch fish.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Bowfin - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker)
Testimonial:I use the #3 squirrel tail/silver blade, along with some custom made Mepps. I always have at least one pole with it on, sometimes 3 poles. I outfish everyone with this lure alone.

Bryon

Location:Warren, Michigan
Product:Aglia Ultra Lites
Fish Caught:Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:This is the best spinner Mepps makes in my experience. I've been out more than once with a lot of people fishing an area and not getting much of anything while I'm getting trout to at least hit on every cast with these. I like all three colors(Silver, Gold and Copper) be sure to change it up often. These are a great trout lure, one of my best without a doubt but they also catch some BIG bass and panfish. Not to mention I've had good size northern pike go after these as well. All in all an awesome lure for any ultra lite fisherman and that's why I always have 5 of every color in my box.

Product:XD
Fish Caught:Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:I like using the number 0 XD when I need a bit of extra weight and need a spinner to run a little deeper than the Ultra Lite Series. A great bait in small streams and from shore for just about any kind of trout, but bass and panfish also love these little spinners. Silver/Black and Gold/Black are my two favorite colors. Something I love about these is how slow you can fish them and the blade keeps moving. If your a serious trout fisherman do yourself a favor and get some of these.

Matt Corliss

Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Musky - Trout, Brook - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:These are by far my favorite type of lures. I have caught many types of fish using these. I have caught musky, Large and smallmouth bass, Rainbow and brook trout all on a gold #3 brown dressed.

Bryon

Location:Warren, Michigan
Product:Aglia Ultra Lites
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:I absolutely love these for stream trout. Silver, Copper or Gold are all great and I keep at least half a dozen of each in my box at all times. Without a doubt my go-to spinner in streams. In faster or deeper water, I add a split shot about a foot from the spinner to keep the lure down deeper and I always fish it S-L-O-W. I prefer the single hook because I do a lot of C&R fishing and the single hook does less damage to the fish. As an added bonus they don't snag as easy as the trebles.

Bryon

Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:I love the size 0 single hook Mepps for stream trout. They're small enough for the small trout but still have a large enough hook and strong enough frame to handle bigger trout. Silver and Gold are my favorites and I like to use these in slower water ,but if your fishing fast water be sure to reel S-L-O-W or the bait will just ride too high in the water.

Bryon

Location:Warren, Michigan
Product:XD
Fish Caught:Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:I always have size 1 XD's in my trout box. I love these in faster water because I can fish them very slow and keep them in holes a lot easier than the classic Mepps. Silver and Gold are good standbys but I also like the brown trout and rainbow trout colors. I also love the quality of this spinner, it's worlds better than other sonic spinners.

Product:Gulf Stream Fishing Shirts
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Channel - Walleye
Testimonial:My daughter got me one of these shirts for Fathers Day. It is one of the most comfortable shirts I have ever had, and just like Mepps lures the quality is incredable. It is great on those really hot days because it has a good ventilation system. My favorite shirt and it won't be my last one either.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I can't say enough good things about this lure! If you want explosive action with anything in the water, USE THIS LURE! I have caught countless large Pike on this along with 16+ smallmouth casting it up onto the ban edge, with a slow to medium retreive. I always carry an extra one or two just in case. Good Luck!

Jason Hetzel

Location:Clinton Township, Michigan
Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I knew that pink colored lures are great for spring time pike. Sure enough, I tied on a #4 Hot Pink plain treble Aglia, and in came the northerns. These lures are absolutely amazing at catching fish. They will catch fish regardless of what weather/water conditions may exist.

Thanks Mepps for such amazing products!!!

Benjamin Christopher

Location:Waterford, Michigan
Product:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye
Testimonial:I use the #4 dressed Aglia I own almost every one. It by far is my best lure. It always delivers the big bass. I use a lot of rooster tail style lures and the biggist problem with them is keeping the spoon spinning. The Aglia hits the water and ALWAYS spins giving off a perfict vibration. I have even landed big hits, mear seconds after hitting the water.

bass 2lbs+, pike 35in+, shellcracker, walleye they all get it good.
