The Mepps Aglia spinner is the original French spinner. It is the World's #1 Lure. More trophy fish have been caught on the Mepps Aglia than any other lure. The Mepps Aglia is extremely popular with fishermen world-wide because it will catch just about any freshwater fish and many species of saltwater fish.
Lure size is important. The rule of thumb is use smaller lures to catch smaller fish and larger lures to catch larger fish. Keep in mind plain spinners present a smaller profile than dressed spinners, so they will appear smaller to the fish. This makes them perfect for panfish and small stream trout. Fishing with dressed spinners can produce larger fish, but, when stream trout fishing, you will probably catch more fish using plain spinners.
Mepps plain treble or single hook Aglias in size #00 or #0 are perfect for panfish (bluegills or sunfish) and small stream trout. They are very light, however, and require a nimble rod, equipped with a light action reel spooled with light line; nothing heavier than six-pound-test. Two-pound-test to four-pound-test is better. Aglias in size #1 and #2 are perfect for larger stream trout and large bluegills, sunfish and crappies. Size #2 Aglias are also excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye. These sizes are ideal for teaching youngsters the basics of spinner fishing, as they are heavy enough to cast well with light tackle, yet they are small enough to catch a wide variety of fish.
Size #4 and # 5 Aglias are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon.
Mepps single hook Aglias can be used virtually anywhere single hook lures are required. They are perfect for Alaska.
Mepps dressed Aglia spinners come in sizes #00 through #5. A #00 is a Mepps Ultra Lite and it weighs only 1/18 oz. These little trout and panfish lures are dressed with natural hackle. They are also available as wooly worms. The #0 Aglia Spin Fly is also a Wooly Worm. It too is perfect for both panfish and trout and weighs 1/12 oz. Larger dressed Aglias weigh up to 1/2 oz. (#5). The hooks on dressed Aglias in sizes #1-#5 are dressed with natural squirrel tail or bucktail.
Dressed Aglias (Ultra Lites and Wooly Worms) in size #00 or #0 are perfect for panfish (bluegills or sunfish) and small stream trout. They are very light, however, and require a nimble rod, equipped with a light action reel spooled with light line; nothing heavier than six-pound-test. Two-pound-test to four-pound-test is better. Dressed Aglias in size #1 and #2 are perfect for larger stream trout and large bluegills, sunfish and crappies. Size #2 Aglias are also excellent for smallmouth bass and walleye.
Mepps Aglias in sizes #3 and #4 are preferred by largemouth bass fishermen. In fact, the #3 dressed Mepps Aglia was rated the best all around lure for largemouth bass by the readers of Sports Afield magazine.
Size #4 and #5 Aglias are ideal for large rainbow trout and steelhead, as well as coho (silver) and chinook (king) salmon. Northern pike and giant tackle busting musky will inhale a dressed #5 Mepps spinner.

The Mepps Aglia is the classic Mepps spinner. Living up to its name, the Aglia blade has a classic steady beat as it is retrieved. In fact, a musician can count its quick beat... 1-2-3-4, 1-2-3-4. It's both lively and bright. Because the French blade on the Aglia spins at a steady 60° angle from the spinner's body, its sound is also steady and very easy to hear.
Fish Caught: Trout, BrownA size #3 Mepps Aglia has to be one of the most productive lures I've ever used. I've taken brown trout on this regularly especially early in the season. Fished over shallows in lakes it's a killer!
Fish Caught: Trout, BrookCaught on a #3 Silver Mepps 3, weeks after stocking. 2 pounds 9oz
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - WalleyeThe Mepps #3 gold with the brown tail is by far my favorite lure in my tackle box. I will not head out fishing if I don't have one. I have caught all of the fish listed above on a gold #3 with a brown tail. I typically target Northern pike, but will frequently catch Bass, and other fish, unintentionally. The best pike I ever caught was around 40 inches, but I have caught countless others over the years. Whenever someone asks my advice on fishing, I recommend the Mepps #3 and tell them that is all they will ever need.
Fish Caught: Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowThis is a very great product for use in lake or streams for trout.
Fish Caught: MuskyThe #5 Aglia is my favorite lure for Pike. I've caught countless Northern on these and my fair share of Largemouth and Smallmouth, but, my absolute best catch was the 45" Musky this lure helped me land.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernCaught and released nice 4 lb northern on Boot Lake, Becker County MN. Used Brown #3 Mepps Agila. Mepps is the best lure that you can find.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernI have been fishing with a variety of Mepps #5 Aglia spinners this year and have had the best fishing of my life. The whole family has followed my lead and we have been catching more Pike than ever before.Just a solid product, we are all hooked on Mepps.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernIf I could have just one fishing lure in my tackle box, it would be the Mepps Aglia dressed #5 Silver/Brown. B5ST S-BR
Fish Caught: Perch, WhiteI have caught many nice White Perch on Mepps Aglias, but once again I was thoroughly convinced that the biggest ones come on the Size 5 dressed Firetiger with the yellow row of beads. Today 6/23/16 about two hours into the outgoing tide, around 12:50 PM, next to a concrete bridge abutment I had that unmistakeable load up and agressive pull down of a very large WP. My river pole is an old 9' Berkely 70s vintage surf rod with Penn CC5000 reel and 50lb braid tied direct to the Mepps and 90lb test snap swivel for a little extra weight and movement in the tide. The perch was easily over two lbs and made a powerful run for cover in the tide. The NJ State salt water record is 2lb 12oz and I'm certain we were very close to 2-1/2 with this one.
