Product:Comet Mino
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I was stationed near Madrid, Spain for 6 years with the U.S. Air Force. I used to go to 3 three bodies of water near each other. All three were on the way to Zaragoza, north of Madrid, nesr the city of Guadalajara. My chief and I were out on a rubber dingy going back and forth between the river and the lake. We were both using Comet Minos and in the course of 4 hours we each caught 12 Northern Pikes apiece. That is one of my best fishing memories. Sadly, the particular Mino's hook rotted out but the plastic body is still good. Are there replacement hooks for them. I'd like to rehook it and give it a place of honor on the retired shelf. Thanks for a great product. My first ever testimonial. I still have some Mepps lures and the mini tackle box they came in that I purchased in the mid 1980s. Some are pretty beat up but still combat ready! :)

Testimonial:This is possibly the greatest fishing lure ever devised, it can be fished deep, shallow, fast or, slow. I caught my personal best bass, my personal best pike, and my personal best trout on this lure. I have never had a better lure than this, the next time that I see this lure I will buy 10. Thank you, Mepps!

Testimonial:If I could have just one fishing lure in my tackle box, it would be the Mepps Aglia dressed #5 Silver/Brown. B5ST S-BR

It consistantly catch pike and large perch. For big pike, I rely on the Mepps Giant Killer.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye
Testimonial:My family and I head north to Ontario, Canada every year. The first few years we would take tackle box among tackle box with everything and the kitchen sink. The third year we stopped at a small tackle and bait shop in Red Lake, ON and picked up a couple of the Mepps Syclops. Figured we would give them a try. The clerk said they worked well. Have not looked back since. They work especially well for Pike, troll with them and you'll get plenty of walleye. I lean towards the Firetiger. Every year I bring one home that didn't get lost and it is just mutilated and scarred from catching so many. Great lures. For the price there is no reason to not have at least one. Thanks Mepps.

Testimonial:I remember I showed up to a spot my friend showed me and I really wasn't sure what kind of fish were in this pit. I just had a gold undressed Mepps number 2 size spinner on and I threw it in the corner of this pond. Next thing ya know I thought I had a big snag, but, sure enough I reeled in a 36" northern pike...

Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:(#5 Gold Aglia) Sometime mid-80's my father said he was going to teach me how to catch a northern pike. By this point I was catching plenty of northerns myself, but, I think he just wanted to prove to me he could still out-fish me, lol. So, he casts out the Mepps and told me this is the speed you should retrieve at, and he was going on and on, and then he said, when you feel that hit just set the hook like this, and as soon as he said that he hooked a pike! We laughed and couldn't believe he hooked a fish during this "lesson". I remember it being a smallish "hammer handle" as he called them.

Testimonial:(Mepps used #5 Gold Aglia B5 G) We were fishing with my cousin who was about my age, so three of us were in the boat. By this time, we had a 1984 Grumman 14 foot aluminum boat equipped with a 15HP Evinrude electric start. Perfect little boat and a nice upgrade from our old 12 foot Starcraft rowboat. My father decides it's time to show me and my cousin how to work a Mepps through the openings in the weeds. He casts his Mepps and as he is reeling in he is telling us how you have to work that lure down Bleecker St. and then you turn it up Jefferson Ave(streets in Utica, N.Y. where we grew up). As he turned that lure through a different path in the weed openings, a big northern pike slammed it. Me and my cousin just about jumped out of the boat as that fish hit close to us. Well that big fish took the Mepps straight down and there was no stopping her. The line didn't break, but I remember my father pulling up a nice bunch of weeds and no fish. Just another great memory and I credit the Mepps!

Over the years, we have easily caught hundreds if not thousand of fish on the Mepps. Everyone I fish with I show them how effective they are.

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:Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I live in the south of England where there are many lakes and rivers near me. I nagged my sister to get me a Mepps that I wanted so she got me a number 1 in silver. Long story short, the first time I went out with it I lost it in a tree, but, a month later my dad got it back. And, since then, I've caught more fish on it than anything else. Perch, here, love it and I caught 13 on Halloween under an hour which is still my record and will stand for many years probably. It's quite simply the best lure money can get you.

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.

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!

Product:Musky Marabou
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:I have used many inline spinners and was going to start building my own because most musky spinners use a regular skirt or tinsel, I decided to try the Mepps Musky Marabou in Hot Firetiger(orange yellow and green.) Much to my surprise musky wasn't the only fish we caught with it, we caught plenty of pike on it also, but the biggest surprise was when I caught 4 largemouth in 4 consecutive casts and the smallest was 3-1/2 pounds and the largest was just over 6lb; for Illinois waters that is a rare fish on a bait for musky!!! After that day, I set my mind not to buy all the components to make my own cause the Musky Marabou is what I would use as a template, maybe when I get some free time I may build some, but for now my 16 Musky m
Marabous I bought have been doing the trick. I would recommend the bait to people but the downside is the Marabou loses the colors relatively quickly and after a number of fish the Marabou comes undone. I wish they would sell a Musky Marabou with a quick connect so you could change marabou colors, like a gold blade with one all black and another tail section with all red or red and black. I wish they would sell just the marabou pieces by themselves, out of my 16 baits only 7 are still in good condition, the others are so worn there isn't enough marabou to even cover the 2 treble hooks or the marabou is so faded you almost can't tell the colors cause they're so faded. Make a Musky Marabou with a way to change the marabou and with a clevis to be able to switch blades and it would be the perfect lure, swap blades and colors quickly, charge a little more and put a different color blade and tail with each lure as most of us musky guys would buy them all up from you!! Thanks for a great lure and hopefully you take some of my advice and I will never build my own if I can buy a reasonably priced perfect bait

Location:Beaver Dam River, Lowell, Wisconsin
Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Bass, White - Pike, Northern - Walleye
Testimonial:The Gold #00 Syclops was a killer bait. I found it on shore one day and never knew Mepps made spoons and since the white bass run was on, I was psyched to try it out. And, man did it catch the whites bad. I outfished all of my friends who were tossing small Daredevils and Twister. I caught some walleye and pike while I was at it, too, but as soon as I went to try a different bait, I didn't catch a single fish after. I guess they just love the erratic action of the Syclops.

Product:Syclops
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:Just returned from our annual fishing trip to Anishinabi Lodge in Ear Falls, Ontario. We really only need one lure, since we caught all types of fish on the same lure. That lure was the 1 oz silver Syclops. Our party landed several northern in the 35 to 40 inch class, several walleyes 18 to 24 inches, jumbo perch, smallmouth bass, and lake trout. It was amazing.

Eric Weiman

Location:Connecticut River, Rocky Hill, Connecticut
Product:Double Blade Musky Marabou
Fish Caught:Pike, Northern
Testimonial:Black spinnerbaits with large blades have been catching pike on the Connecticut River so far this Fall. After multiple trips throwing a black spinnerbait with willowleaf blades with no luck, I made the switch to a black Double Blade Musky Marabou this past Sunday morning. This was my first time using this lure. Not more than 30 minutes into throwing it, I was hooked up with and boated a 37" pike weighing 14lb. My biggest pike so far, by far.

The lure was super easy to burn over the top of dying weeds using a 7.0:1 baitcasting reel spooled with 30lb. braid on a 7'4" heavy bass rod.

The large gold blades put out lots of thump and are very visible in the stained river water. The black marabou puts out a nice outline for the fish to target as well. The lure ran true right out of the package and the blades spun effortlessly and never got themselves hung up on the trebles or the shaft. And after the tangle with this very nice northern, the lure still looks and operates like new. The marabou tail also has a great expanding and contracting action when bulged.

My Double Blade Musky Marabou is now my number one lure choice for pike in the CT River. Thank you Mepps!

Product:Musky Marabou
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:Never been a big fan of bucktails as they have never produced as well as some other baits. I had to try a Musky Marabou 'cause of how fluffy it looked in the package. I bought one to try and now I have basically every Musky Marabou Mepps makes. I like to troll over the weeds with the Marabou and have caught a ton of largemouth over 5lbs???? Who would have thought largemouth would attack the Musky Marabou, but, they do; and, there all monster bass no small guys with this lure. it also has caught me more northern than I can count, the largest being 45-inches, and we have only got a couple of smaller 35 or so inch musky, go figure the Musky Marabou has caught me some of my biggest bass and pike and only a couple of smaller musky. Once the big musky start to come a little shallow late in the season, I'm sure that will change! Thanks Mepps, but I think you need to re-name the Musky Marabou to the predator Marabou 'cause it catches all the predators.

Testimonial:I caught a 26", 33", 23" Northern Pike and a 15" Smallmouth Bass at Lake Vermillion using a #5 Mepps Aglia. They were all caught in weedy and rocky areas in a bay and put up quite a fight.

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.

Product:Black Fury
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.

Ryan

Location:Kewaskum, Wisconsin
Product:Musky Killer
Fish Caught:Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, Northern
Testimonial:It brings a tear to my eye every time I think about this lure. The white blade and white tail Musky Killer has produced more fish for me than any other lure. I caught a 49 inch muskie last summer with this lure and countless northern and smaller muskie. It is a feeding frenzy every time it is thrown in the water. You can run it as shallow as you want and even have the blade create a wake on the surface. Perfect for shallow casting over weeds for monster fish. If you throw this lure you will not be disappointed. Great job on the lure, Mepps.

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.
