CLOSED DUE TO COVID-19 The state government of Wisconsin has ordered all non-essential businesses to close. While we believe fishing is an essential activity, we are complying with the state mandate to help control the spread of COVID-19. Mepps is currently shut down until we get permission from our state government to reopen our operations. During our closure, we will be unable to build, ship or fulfill any orders. We thank you for your continued support and patience while we wait for clearance to resume business as soon as possible. We will update you as soon as our state government gives us permission to open. If you have any questions or concerns, please email us at

My Story

I was fishing with my husband on the Fox Chain. I was using a #5 Double Bladed Fluorescent Black Fury in about 8 feet of water. She came out of the water, and took several runs underneath the boat before we got her in the net. Looks like the first time she was caught, and she swam away strong. She was my largest musky to date, and I look forward to catching a larger one soon, probably on a Mepps since that is what we throw a lot.
