Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Trout, RainbowJust a few days ago, I waded into a shallow stretch of the Cumberland River, and over a four hour period, I caught and released 44 rainbow trout, many of which were well over 14-15 inches. The undressed Mepps Aglia, size 0 and 1, with brass or nickel blades accounted for the majority of the fish caught. I have been a trout fisherman for about 29 years, both spin and fly tackle, and I would never seriously consider spin fishing for trout without a box of Aglias, Black Furies, and Aglia Spin-flies. Mepps simply manufactures the best commercially available spinners in the world. Bottom line.
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Carp - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black)These lures work! Ive never had a catfish hit harder then they do with these. Cast them toward cover and let them settle before you reel. If the fish are feeding its a guaranteed strike.
Lure: Aglia Long
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black)I have found a favorite with the Aglia Long #2 w/ hot Firetiger blade. Within the last week, I have caught Crappie, Bluegill, Large and Small-mouth, and believe it or not several Catfish (on a spinner!)I love it.
