Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Chum - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)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.
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!
Fish Caught: Grayling - Salmon, Chum - Salmon, Sockeye (red) - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, RainbowThis Lure will work! I went on a Fly fishing trip with Spinning Rods only! The other Guys on the trip looked cool casting their Fly rods, but they couldn't keep up with the lures I bought from Mepps! I caught many species with this Lure, Thanks Mepps!
Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Kokanee - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)In the annual Soldotna Trustworthy Ice Fishing Derby, which covers the lakes on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, I caught a "Strait Flush" (char, kokanee, lake trout, rainbow and pike) using the #1 Mepps Syclops in Hot Orange. It also caught the largest grayling on the #1. In fact, it was the exact same lure! (I never lost it) I can't say enough about how great this lure is for ice fishing although I catch fish all summer on it as well.
Lure: Aglia Ultra Lites
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Grayling - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Cutthroat - Trout, RainbowThese are great with a 4"9 ultral-lite rod and 2lb test line. I wish I could find them in more stores. WalMart always has a few... but never enough!
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brown - Trout, Sea/SpeckledI have used the Thunder Bug spinner in several colors and sizes. The Blue Tail Fly/silver color is perfect for sea trout. If the fish are there, they take it. Also, the regular brown trout are glad to see one of these spinners. Either brown or yellow in March. I have caught 15-20 brown trout within a couple of hours fishing. A little trick to stop the spinner from twisting the line is to bend the eye 30-45 degrees. Be careful not to bend the shaft below the twisting, or you will end up with a spinner that doesn't work at all. Bending the eye down a little not only stop the lure from twisting the line, but also makes it go in the water in a S formation. The fly lies straight out behind the lure, the eye follows the line, and the body lies in a 30-45 degree angle. Some times the lure will even fish much better after performing this little trick. Some Dragon Fly nymphs have this position when swimming in the open water, or when they are ready to strike a pray.
