Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow

I am a 45 year old woman I have been fishing since I was 3 years old. First started with my grandfather. He had always used nothing but Mepps spinners. So I followed in his foot steps. I try new lures on occasion but have found its a waste of time for me. I will only use Mepps to catch the fish!!! They are the best!!

Jordan Kay – Wisconsin, Illinois

Lure: Minos

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Blue - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Perch Mino and Rainbow Blade combo is crazy. I have had multiple musky over 40" hit it. Make sure you are using the correct gear.

Charles W Taylor – Virginia

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Crappie (Black) - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Rainbow

There is something about that extra flash that will out fish other baits. A number 1 slow rolled will slay trout. I have also caught my person best bluegill on a number 3 along with a 4.5lb bass on a number 1.

Gabe Resto – Beaverdam Creek On The Wicomico River In Salisbury, Maryland

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Striped - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, White

I wish I could select Hickory Shad as well, they can't resist a size 0 or 1 plain silver Aglia. A white dressed size 2 Aglia cast right in the spillway wash was the ticket for the stripers.

Kevin Osina – Bethany Lakes, Allen, Texas

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

This lure works like magic. You throw it, they bite!!

Gabe Resto – Bell Creek, Wicomico River In Salisbury, Maryland

Lure: Aglia Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I tied on my ultra lite for the last couple casts to see if anything would bite a lure instead of nightcrawler, and two casts later my personal best bass waked out of the brush and slammed it. The perfect lure!

Luke Rice – Private Pond, Calhoun GA., Georgia

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Trout, Rainbow

The Mepps Aglia Flashabou is a great lure. I used the chartreuse blade and chartreuse tail color (size 2) in a stocked pond and caught a cooler full of fish. I caught one nice bluegill, four or five small bass, and about a dozen rainbow trout. Two of the trout were about two pounds a piece! I lent my trusty silver Mepps Mino to the owner of the pond, but he only caught one trout and one bass with it (most of the time I love to use the Mepps Mino). Today I used the right color and was well rewarded. Thank you one again Mepps for making the World's #1 Lure.

Ralston Heath – East Lake Toho Florida, Florida

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White)

I originally bought one from a store because I thought it was cool looking (something different). Since then I have caught a lot of fish with it. Including the ones I checked above and add in Florida Gar. After only a year, it is seriously bent, beat, chewed, and wore out. But still catching fish. I consider it my don't get skunked lure.
Since it has seen such abuse, I ordered nine more. Best lure since the Comet Mino. PLEASE, keep making them. If not, let me know when you are going to stop making them so I can stock up.

Luke Rice – Lake Ocoee, Tn, Tennessee

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

The Mepps Mino is the best lure I have used yet. If you want to catch fish, this is the lure to get. Yearling Bass eat this like candy. Thank you Mepps for making such a great lure.

Ralston Heath – Lake Tohotakaleaka FL., Florida

Lure: Comet Mino Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I use the 00 Comet Mino as my "unfair" advantage, so I never go home skunked. When nothing else works this lure does. Caught lots of 'gills and bass. Too bad they don't make the gold mino anymore, but mine still works.

Captain Jeff – Chautauqua Lake, New York

Lure: Grab Bag Specials

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker)

You can't beat the Mepps grab bag specials!! They always give you a great assortment of spinners and colors. I use these regularly with customers, The Aglia, Black Fury, Syclops, Musky Killer are just a few of my favorites. Love of the surprise of what's in the grab bag since they are always different. And I like trying spinners and colors I would not have normally chosen, then have them catch lots of fish. Thank you Shep/ The Mepps Man! -Capt Jeff

Steven Lyon – Lake Anna, Virginia

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

I originally bought this lure back in 1980. This lure was my favorite lure to fish from in the canal I had in back yard in North Lauderdale Florida while I was in Elementary school. I could catch bluegill and brim all day long with this lure. Now move forward 40 years later. I just started getting back into fishing and dusted off my childhood tackle box. I caught a fish on the first cast with this lure in Lake Anna Virginia. I then caught 5 more within 15 minutes only to get the lure snagged and my line snapped. My heart sank, at the loss of this lure and to my pleasant surprise I looked online and found that this same exact lure is still being made and sold. I instantly bought the same one I lost and then a couple new ones in other sizes and colors. Thank you Mepps! Your loyal customer.

Ryne Hansen – Pend O’Reille, Bayview, Idaho

Lure: Trophy Series

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow

Silver Mepps No. 4 are the best, most consistent lure I’ve ever used. Over my lifetime the biggest, and the most fish I’ve ever caught were all on Mepps.

Leonard Rex – Private Pond, Johnston County, North Carolina

Lure: Comet Mino Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I caught some nice bream with a Mepps Comet today. It always seems to produce.

Skipp Washington – Village Oaks Man-made Lake, Novi, Michigan

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Sunfish (shellcracker)

This is truly an extremely versatile lure. In one day and on the same lure (#2 Thunder Bug Bumble Bee), I caught 9 med. largemouth Bass, 4 Bluegill, 2 Crappie, 1 huge Pumpkinseed, 2 massive Bull Bream. I have but one suggestion, make this in a size #3 and you will have covered all the game fish in the Sunfish family, including big Largemouth and Smallmouth. Something about the sonic properties of this lure fish find irresistible! All in a days work.

Ben – Central Iowa, Iowa

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

The smallmouth can't leave this bait alone -- just caught my PR this evening! I tend to not like fishing treble hooks, so I was pleased to pick up the Black Fury Weedless Combo Killer, which features a single hook and a soft plastic keeper for Mr. Twister Curly Tail Grubs (3 grubs are included in the package). I was suspect of the bayonet-style keeper at first, but it seems to work fine, even in the faster currents of the rivers and creeks where I do most of my fishing. Hooksets are automatic, and fish stay pinned while doing their smallmouth acrobatics. I bought the #2 size in white/black and it casts well, but now I'm wishing I would have picked up the #3 size as well for when I need the extra casting distance. Great product, Mepps, and a good value -- would buy again!

James T Brooker III – Squirrel Creek, Oklahoma

Michael Rigney – Eastern Shore Maryland, Maryland

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (Black) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel

Best lures ever.

Skipp Washington – Village Oaks Lake, Novi, Michigan

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White)

The Thunder Bug is extremely versatile and durable. I've caught Largemouth, Crappie, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed all on the same lure (Bumble Bee), all in the same lake, all on the same day! It casts a country mile, an advantage fishing from shore, and comes in great Match-the-Hatch colors. The weight allows count-down capabilities which puts you at the right depth for Strikes. Hydrodynamic and sonically sound. These lures do not spook fish. I only wish they made these in sizes 4 and 5 with fluorescent colors, perfect for big Bass, Walleye and Salmon. Hint, hint!!

Bob Hayett – Lake Lenexa, Kansas

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

The Cricket Thunderbug is one of the very best bluegill lures I've ever used. This is not surprising, since crickets are known as a great bluegill bait. I've caught maybe hundreds of bluegills on the Thunderbug in many lakes in Northeast Kansas. Lake Lenexa is a small flood control lake with very clear water for a Kansas lake. The darker color of the cricket Thunderbug is perfect for clearer water.

Steven Johnson – Creek, California

Lure: Trout Pocket Pac - #0 Aglia Wooly Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

I scored three of these to fish a local creek. We were not catching anything until I tied one of these on. I made my first cast and reveled on how cool they look in the water. My second cast I scored a Large Mouth Bass! My friend decided to tie one on as I caught Bass #2 and #3. He also caught a Bass on his second cast. We slayed (followed by releasing) a dozen more Bass and Bluegills before the Sun went down. I will be buying lots more of these! The single hook is great! Hits were always hook ups!

Ethan Koski – Basswood Lake, BWCA, Minnesota

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

I've caught tons of fish on my Comet Mino, but the most excellent fish I caught was a 39in. northern pike. It was massive. It had a diameter of 15in. It took an hour to fillet it. And the same day I caught a huge 28in walleye. I'm for sure telling everyone I know about your guy's Comet Mino. I have never caught so many fish on one lure. I'm a 14 year old kid from Minnesota that doesn't have a job, but loves to go fishing and never, I mean never, had so much fun with one lure. I'm for sure going to save up some money to buy another one of these. I'll make sure everyone I know, knows about these.

Deloria James – Great Lakes And Tributaries, Michigan

Lure: Aglia BRITE

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Crappie (Black) - Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink - Steelhead - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye - Salmon, Chinook (king)

At 64 I've fished extensively throughout the Upper midwest from Northern Lower Mi. to Northern Mn. and everywhere in between for over 50 years. I am never without multiple styles and sizes of Mepps spinners. They have been my "go-to" lure all my life and I've caught everything I fish for on them. They always produce when nothing else will and never disappoint. This new "Aglia BRITE is my new favorite style. It amazes me that I will catch fish with it when with buddies who are using something else get skunked. Keep supplying us with these!

Derrek CUmmings – Blanchard, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker)

Mepps are ALWAYS my go to lure. The only reason I ever switch, is to keep things interesting! But almost all of my fish have been caught on Mepps spinners! Great lure for Pike anywhere from 2ft to 12 or even deeper! The fish smash the lure so hard they almost always set the hook themselves! Mepps are just overall great lures and you never know whats gonna be on the line when you throw one and hook into something!

Chuck Wechsler – South Carolina

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pickerel

"In my experience, the best and most versatile lure for fishing dark-water rivers and creeks in the South is the Mepps Comet Minnow. This little lure is deadly on largemouth bass, crappie, bream, warmouth, and pickerel, or what we call jackfish in the South. Truly an awesome lure. - Chuck Wechsler, editor, Sporting Classics magazine

Best Lure ever

I have using them for over 40 years

Robbie Burns – Lake Fryer, Texas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Walleye - Barracuda

I bought the lure being a little skeptical seeing not very many reviews or product testing; even on YouTube there wasn't much. I bought the Black Fury in sizes 1,2 and 3. The number 2 & 3 are awesome! It's almost every other cast you'll get something on the Black Fury. The catch was almost 3lbs and I just recently caught an 8lb largemouth. It's an awesome lure and is a fish magnet. A must have for anybody who loves to throw a lure around.
