Lure: Black Fury
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernMille Lacs is widely known for it's "killer" walleye in the summer, and the frenzied perch in the winter. One fish that the lake is not known for is it's pike. Northern is what you might classify as a long lost secret. I discovered this secret shortly after my purchase of the Black Fury. I was on a, "well", tackle binge and I bought almost anything and everything. About a week or so after I went out to the lake, just for a cast or two, I went through a couple of lures with almost no luck. I was about to pack up and call it a day when I decided to use the Black Fury and, well, it lived up to it's name. The northern pike would not stop biting! It was the most fun I have ever had fishing. From that day on the Black Fury has become my lure of choice!
Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)I was fishing with a Mepps #0 size Syclops. I had doubts in my mind that it would work better than a worm and a bobber. Well I was wrong! I was surprised it worked so well. I had caught 40 bluegill, one right after the other. The Syclops is a real "Wonderful Bait." Thank You Mepps!
Lure: Little Wolf
Fish Caught: Trout, RainbowCaught 10 in one hour, all between 14"- 18". Using medium heavy action rod with 8lb. test. I'll try light action with 4lb. next time, can't wait.
Lure: Comet Mino
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernI was going through old tackle boxes and found a Comet Mino from 1973 that had never been opened before. So I opened the package and walked down to the river with my pole and made a few casts. On about the fourth cast I caught a 27" Northern Pike. I used that bait all night long and caught 7 more Pike ranging from 19-26". I was so impressed with the lure that I went to the store and bought more. I never leave the house to go fishing without a Mepps Comet Mino or other Mepps products.
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Salmon, Kokanee - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowHere is another great lure from Mepps. These little guys catch tons. They can out fish live bait on any given day and pound for pound, I can catch twice as many trout as a guy with flies can in an hour. I recommend these to anybody who sees me with them and they sometimes see me again and show me how their tackle box is now filled with them. Thanks for another great lure Mepps and countless more great fish!
Lure: Flying C
Fish Caught: Salmon, Atlantic - Steelhead - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)Once again the people at Mepps outdo themselves. I bought a few of these lures when my local tackle shop first started stocking them and took them out fishing the next day for salmon and steelhead. What a lure! In the first hour I had caught more salmon and steelhead than most of the other anglers who had been out their all morning. I was also able to land a nearly 27 lb. Landlocked salmon. It was nearly a record breaker! Keep them comin' Mepps!
Lure: Grab Bag Specials
Fish Caught: Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Trout, Brook - Trout, RainbowMepps has made their lures and deals the best money can buy again. I bought one of these specials for my birthday and wow! These lures are really cheap (I mean way, way, way marked down) and yet are still as great as their counterparts. I guess I should have expected that from Mepps. I have already caught maybe thirty fish on the spinners in this set and have been really happy with them. Thanks for making such great lures Mepps!
Lure: Magnum Musky Killer
Fish Caught: MuskyThis lure is one of the best lures I've ever used before. I was using it on the Wolf River and the musky just nailed the Magnum Musky Killer, the musky was 57 inches long and it weighed in at 34lbs. So it's the best lure I've ever used before.
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthI was fishing a really nice river that had just been opened to the public using a Mepps Agila Plain Treble when all of the sudden a huge bucketmouth nailed my lure. After about a five minute long battle in a small canoe, I landed, weighed, and measured the big guy. It was about 20 in. long and weighed a little over 4 and a half pounds. I use these lures to catch anything; from small trout to huge salmon. These are one type of lure that you can count on for any situation.
Lure: Spin Flies
Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowI love these lures! I've been using them for near to four years now and they are great. They often produce fish when no other lure will. I have caught probably eight different species of fish on these little lures and find them wonderful. I have been continually asked by other anglers what these lures were and where I got them after seeing me catch fish after fish in only a matter of minutes. If you don't have some of these lures than buy them and if you do, well you shouldn't be reading this, you should be out on the water using them!
Lure: Grab Bag Specials
Fish Caught: BarracudaIt had to have been like 3 am and I was dead tired. I was walking down the trail at dusk it was a clammy morning. I was sooo sick of fishin and then I grabbed my grab bag fulll of all these goodies. Then I went and tied on one of the Mepps spinners on and I had the time of my life reelin in them dang barracudas. It was outstanding I love Mepps they are a-mazing!
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Trout, BrownThe Thunder Bug is the most productive spinner for trout I ever used. It out fishes any other lure in my box, it continues to catch trout at a high rate. I would recommend this lure to anybody.
