Aglia & Dressed Aglia Testimonials

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.

John Hunter – Tinicum, Pennsylvania

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Striped - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Snakehead

The Mepps number 5 dressed Aglia is my favorite freshwater lure. Its my number one lure for bass and snakehead. It catches anything that swims in freshwater!

Seth Smith – Penns Creek, Weikert, Pennsylvania ,

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Brown

Weikert parking lot October 5, 2020
Not a sole in sight, after fishing the main section and catching many fish I decided to trek down stream past the bridge. Coming to a deep hole in the back, I tie on a dressed Aglia 2 and toss it out into the limestone stream. 5-6 tosses later... SMACK! Big 24" brownie right in the corner of the mouth. Brown trout approved👌

Bob – Brunswick Hills, Ohio

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

The Mepps Aglia Brown Trout with Gray Squirrel Tail is a go to. We go to Lake Nippissing every year and have our own group tournament. I can bank on the Brown Trout with a Squirrel Tail to catch fish especially casting into the sun and a slow steady retrieve through the tops of weeds in the early evening.

Mike Buroni – Bartlett Lake, Arizona

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Channel

First two casts returned two different bites, two different species. I had no idea channel cats would attack the Mepps. Good job guys, I am forever a believer.

Jess Bridel – Kipawa Lake, Laniel, Quebec , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

New to fishing, my husband gave me a bunch of his lures to start off my tackle. One was a Mepps Aglia #3, rainbow trout with pink beads. He’d had it for over a decade and never used it (too pink). It quickly became my go-to. Out catching hubs. Shortly after catching 7 fish (bass, pickerel, pike) I caught a trophy sized bass!!! Sadly a huge pike, decided he liked it so much, he just had to have it.... I am desperately searching for a replacement- but believe it’s discontinued. I have friends all over Canada searching their local tackle shops for it.
That Mepps is amazing. Even my husband, who used to be allergic to pink lures, is sold on it and wants one too...

Bruce Purpura – Downeast Maine Lakes And Ponds, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)

I discovered the Mepps dual blade aglia spinner last year and have not put it down since. This lure catches just about everything that my ponds and lakes have to offer. I had never caught salmon, pike, walleye, or trout until I started using this lure. The bass LOVE it. I troll alot and using this lure on 1 rod and a different lure on the other rod, I will catch 90% on the dual blade. Can't say enough about it. Thank you for producing quality products.

David Fairly – Tanks Central Texas, Texas

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black)

I was always a true believer in spoons and live bait. A good friend of mine ask me what I was fishing with and just as I said before. He was knocking the fish out at every cast. Well I guess he felt sorry for me. he gave me a #5 Mepps and the fish never stopped hitting that day and still to this day I am a true believer in this life and consider this to be the world's best lure.

Bruce Bradley – Catalan Seco Lagoon, Artigas Uruguay

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

I have fished in Brazil and Uruguay and by far the best lure has been the Mepps treble silver. Mostly have fished 'lagoons', which are sections of seasonal rivers that hold water year-round. There are limited species but the action can be great. Mostly there are predator fish with the most common being tararira. Voracious feeders and fantastic fighters, with jumping common. They have walleye-like teeth and hard mouths. Another species is cabesa a magre, a bass-like form and not as good a fighter, but still fun to catch. Mepps silver 3 is best. Mepps spinners are my go-to lure wherever I go from the Arctic to the Southern Cone.

Kip Lohmiller – Lake Poygan, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bowfin - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (Black) - Pike, Northern - Walleye - Catfish, Flathead

As a kid I grew up using Mepps, in WI and MN. The 21 years I was in the Army, I didn't fish at all. After retirement my wife told me, I needed a hobby, so I took up fishing again, after nearly 25 years. And went and bought a bunch of Mepps and other lures. I can't lie, I am a spinner loving fisherman. Over the last 3 years I have used Mepps almost exclusively. And mainly the Aglia dressed #5 and #3. I have caught tons of fish with them, from Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike, Small Mouth, Walleye, Bowfin, Crappie, Catfish, and White Bass. I have been to Mepps in Antigo three times with friends to take the tour and get resupplied on my selection. Each time Bev and the crew have been awesome, and a big thanks to them.
Last year Mepps came out with the Aglia Bait series, and I ordered several different ones, but the Frog was my new go to spinner. I caught probably 6 northern over 32" and tons of bass, small and large mouth, I caught walleye, white bass and more. There are two really memorable days this last season that I would like to share. 1st, Troy and I went out in the morning on Lake Poygan and he was using the Dirty Shad and I was using the Frog, both from the Aglia Bait Series. Up until late afternoon I caught all Large Mouth and Troy caught all Northern Pike. Later that day things change up and we caught 8 White Bass in about 15 minutes and then I started to catch northern on my Frog and Troy, bass on his Dirty Shad. We caught 30 fish that day, it was crazy...... 2nd, My brother in law came up to visit and he has been fishing his whole life so its always a competition. The last day Troy, Jim and myself went out for a day of fishing. Jim "my brother in law" threw everything in his tackle box to include some crazy looking blue gill lure. Troy and I only used Mepps Bait Series. Troy and I caught a total of 20 fish, 10 apiece and Jim caught 4. A great way to end a week of fishing.......
On December 30, 2019 Troy and I went up to Mepps for a tour and to have some lures custom made. The tour was great and Troy and I put in our order. Troy got his lures the next day, WOW. I got mine on the 1st, WOW. The whole team up in Antigo was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot Mepps, you build the best lures and have the best customer service!!!!!!!! Troy and I are going to do some bass tourneys this year with only Mepps just for fun...... Have a great year!!!!!

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

Dear Mr Mepps,

I use your lures through out the open water season. Amazingly, I catch 8 different species on them in my lake. Tonight I caught a trophy large mouth. 6" mouth, what a fight. She is going to the taxidermist in the morning. Thank you again!

Tony Grimm – Kaw Lake, Oklahoma

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Striped - Catfish, Channel

The dressed Aglia is truly a remarkable lure. I went fishing at Kaw Lake and caught 5 different species out of the first 6 fish. Striper, Wiper, Largemouth Bass, Needlenose Gar and 2 Channel Catfish. For a lure that has been in production since 1938, that really says something about it’s effectiveness and the company that makes these great lures. I would like to send a big thank you to Mepps and the employees that work in Wisconsin and in France for building such great lures.

I've been fishing and guiding on the Nushagak River for 15 years, an undressed Aglia with a Hot Pink blade will draw strikes from just about every species in the river and a #5 is all I want to throw at Coho.

Simon Duringer – Rawthey, United Kingdom United Kingdom

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

I've fished with MEPPS since 1989 and they have always proved to be the #1 go-to spinner for Trout, Sea-Trout and Salmon. Yesterday, I had 2 nice fish (very unusual for a single day on this local river); 2 x Sea Trout - both on a Gold MEPPS Size 3 Aglia. You guys simply ROCK :-)

Hi
I wanted to share this story. I live on the Erie canal. In an approximately 50 yard stretch in a single day. Over approximately a 2 hour window, I caught the 7 different species of fish that I marked above using the same #2 plain silver Aglia. I found that to be quite remarkable and wanted to share this and let you know what a great product you have.

Cole Rochon – Middle Range Pond, Poland, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pickerel - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I fish 5-6 days a week on my lake from early spring to late fall. Mepps spinners have always been a go to when casting for bass. Today I pulled out a Mepps from my grandfather's tackle box (guessing 30 years old.) What followed was the single most amazing hour I've ever spent on the water. In one hour, I caught over 35 fish, and more amazingly, six different types! Large mouth, small mouth, chain link, brown trout, brook trout, and rainbow trout. I'm still in awe.

Kevin Grant – Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Brook

Hands down, my favorite lure for local brook trout and bass has been the Mepps Aglia. One of the absolute best ever from that line was the undressed treble hook Aglia with the fluorescent orange blade in a #0 or #1 weight. Lost the last one I had a few years ago. Sure do miss that lure. It absolutely slayed brookies here in Maine..

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!

Julie Winkelman – Lemon Lake, CO, Colorado

Shane Dinsdale – Nottawasaga River Wasaga Beach Ontario, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

I caught a monster salmon on a #2 Hot orange Mepps Spinner on my 10th cast. Felt like I was snagged up on something and then nothing. Then it hit hard. This was the first time I tried spinners during the salmon run. Now I'm hooked on Mepps for good. Thanks.
