Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Barracuda
Testimonial:The dressed XD size 3 with white (silver blade) and yellow (gold blade) is a killer for the hybrids. I tend to troll with these lures and it doesn't take long. It also attracts all the other fish in the lake. If it wasn't for the pickerel I wouldn't need to order so many of these :)

Testimonial: The lure I reach for first, no matter what I am fishing for is a Gold size 1. It's always catching me trout at the small lake near where I live, catching my limit, even when those right near me are catching nothing. I like how it makes me look like a great fisherman by just knowing the right lure to use. People ask me what I am using and I just tell them to switch to a Mepps spinner. You made Mepps my favorite lure when you first sent me your Fishing Guide 20 years ago and I have been using them and catching fish ever since.

Product:Little Wolf
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown
Testimonial:Have been using Mepps all my life. But, when I first bought a Little Wolf, it was gold. It became one of my favorites. First day I used it while fishing at a small lake near where I live in western New York, I caught 3 largemouth bass,at least 5 bluegill, a couple of crappie, and 4 brook trout in about a hour. I then passed it on to my wife so she could catch some fish, since the live bait she was using had only caught her a couple of bluegill. This gold Little Wolf and others that I have bought this season, have been producing every time.

Testimonial:I love Mepps!! I only really use Mepps, not just spinners, but, I ordered replacement Minos and use them on spring crappie and sunny spawn. I catch 3 fish to everyone else's!!! How you ask? I don't have to get a minnow out of minnow bucket! Plus, I use Mepps on fly rods with a sight indicator. Between St. Croix and Mepps I will continue to dominate anyone I fish with!!!

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye
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:I LOVE the Aglia spinners. My son and I use them as a "go to" lure for pretty much anything we fish for and ALWAYS have luck when we do. Thanks for making such an awesome product Mepps!!!!

Product:Black Fury
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Blue - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow
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:I bought this lure at Bass Pro Shops a while ago. While fishing in a local marina one day, nearly every cast was another catch. I have used it at fishing derby's the past two years and have won for biggest fish both years. Can't express my newly found love for these lures!

Testimonial:From 0 to number 5 these baits always work. Best baits in the world. My go-to bait every time I'm out. These lures will catch just about everything. Caught my 38-inch northern pike out of the Great Miami River. My mounted 29-inch northern. Catch smallmouth all day long with these. Double blades are also great. Silver blades with white bucktail. Also, the ones without a bucktail with the orange plastic piece works great. Great product, good prices. Wish I could fish for a living.

Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Rainbow
Testimonial:I felt compelled to give a testimonial on the "go-to" lure in my tackle box, the Mepps Comet Mino. I have been fishing with this lure for 35 years and it never fails to catch fish when nothing else will. I have caught many species including: Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, Perch, Trout, and Crappie. It works in ponds, rivers, lakes, and streams. In short, if I only had 1 lure to fish with, it would be the Mepps Comet Mino! Thank you for all your quality products!

Testimonial:I went fishing at a local river on Saturday and no one around me was catching fish but me! I was the only one using a Mepps lure, everyone else was using bait. I caught my limit in 45 min. while I only saw one other person catch a trout.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye
Testimonial:The Syclops lure year after year proves to be the TOP lure in my tackle box. I used to use only orange, but have recently found that experimenting with different colors has a huge reaction to fish strikes depending on the weather, water temp, etc. This past June in Canada, Northern were chasing the orange, but slamming the silver Syclops. It made for a wonderful trip and an addition to my wall with 38" Northern with a 16" Girth. Thank You Mepps!

Testimonial:These Mino spinners have been one of the greatest lures I have ever used, everything likes them, to the point that I have several of each size in three different tackle boxes. When nothing is biting on anything I throw in, all I have to do is throw one of these in and let the fun begin. I prefer the chad, but also have the Rainbows just in case the weather turns bad, seems the worse the weather, the Rainbows work better. These are also good for SEA TROUT in southern FL. Great all around lures.

Testimonial:This is the best lure ever. I have them in all sizes, even a few that used to belong to my dad. They have the best feel in the water, you can tell when a fish is even thinking about eating it. I will have this lure in my box 'til I'm in one.
Thanks

Product:Aglia Streamer
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Trout, Brown
Testimonial:Bought them in Maine never having tried them before. Typically fish for Bass with soft baits and other spinners. With other guys in the boat catching nothing, these still find fish. Completely sold on them for all types of fishing in New England. Stronger hooks would be better though. Heavier set ups would be nice too for bigger fish. The treble hooks do make for a few more landings. I find the brown color works best for more species, but all have caught fish every time I tie one on the line. I would absolutely buy a wider variety of larger sizes and colors if they were available.

Testimonial:There are some days when we will fish with only one lure, and that is, the #5 Aglia dressed white with a silver blade. On every trip to Maine, we stop at Cabela's and buy as many as they have because we know they will be beaten to a pulp.
They are attacked by pickerel, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and northern pike. It is a phenomenal lure and will oftentimes save a trip from being blah. Thanks MEPPS!

Testimonial:I got my my first Mepps lure last year because I ran out of lures and needed some new ones. It was one of the best decisions I've made getting one. I got the Aglia Plain Treble Hot Firetiger #1. I caught easily over 50 largemouth bass with around 20-25 of them all over a foot long last season. The largest of the season was 18 inches. So far this fishing season I have caught over 30 and around 20 have been over a foot long with the longest around 17 inches. I've caught 2 channel catfish both around 13 or 14 inches, one this season, one last season. I've e caught 2 perch this year both around 11 inches long and I've caught 2 small bluegill this season, none last season. I only have that one lure and it has never disappointed me. I want to get a few more that are a little bigger for some bigger fish. This has to be the best lure in the world. I can't wait to try all the different types.

Testimonial:I am the third generation of my family to fish this river. I use the Aglia plain treble in all sizes #0-#3 wading the river and when we use the boat I use #3-#5. We catch hundreds of trout a year in our waters when we aren't flyfishing for them and these lures are the only ones I trust when me and my buddy go kayak fishing for bass. It is the single best lure on the market today.

Testimonial:I've been bass fishing for 35 years, I caught my first 9 1/2 lb bass on a Fluorescent Orange Mepps Black Fury . Chartreuse Mepps Black Fury #3 is my best friend. When I don't want to search a long time for bass, I'll use the Black Fury, with the first 2 cast if I don't get any hits I'll move. Normally within 2 cast the fish are there. I've caught 2 to 3 lb crappie easy. This is the BEST lure made , next to the plastic worm . lol

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.

Derrick Broeckel

Product:Thunder Bug
Fish Caught:Bass, Rock - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker)
Testimonial:This is the best panfish lure Mepps makes especially the #00 size. I like to suspend it from a bobber and tip with a tiny piece of nightcrawler. When you shake the bobber the blade goes crazy and it brings the fish into your bait like a cat to catnip. The panfish you catch are usually bigger than with a plain hook as well. I like the Cricket color alot as well as the all silver bait.

Derrick Broeckel

Location:Ice Fishing Wisconsin Lakes, Wisconsin
Product:Bantam Syclops
Fish Caught:Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Walleye
Testimonial:This bait in the #00 size is a phenominal ice fishing bait. I use it as an attractor, I take the hook off and tie a dropper about six inches to a foot long from the split ring and add a very small ice jig. This bait works great on pannies and on walleyes when tipped with a minnow or waxie. It adds weight to get your bait down quick, and adds alot of attraction, something I find necessary especially when jigging for perch, crappie, or walleye. I have had some sucess ice fishing bluegills with this setup but it doesn't seem as productive as for the other species, the added weight may be a little too much for spooky bluegills.

Fish Caught:Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker)
Testimonial:Man, this is one of the greatest lures I have ever used! My family and I went up to Seeley Lake, mostly to boat, 'cause I'm the only one who's crazy about fishing in my family. I waded into the water next to some lily pads. As I cast my Mepps Aglia out, I see a nice two foot long pike swim by. Excited, I cast my Mepps in his direction, and two seconds after it was in the water, I see the pike swallow it, and I caught my first pike. I also caught countless perch, another nice pike, and one of the biggest sunfish I've ever seen! This is one of the greatest lures I've purchased.

Testimonial:These are great with a 4"9 ultral-lite rod and 2lb test line. I wish I could find them in more stores. WalMart always has a few... but never enough!
They may be small... But I have caught trout well over 20 inches on them!
One of my favorite's!
