William S. Gray – Bull Pasture River, Deerfield,Va., Virginia
Lure: Trouter Kit - Plain and Dressed Lure Assortment
Fish Caught: Trout, Rainbow
I was invited to go fishing at a private hunt club about 20 miles outside of Deerfield,VA. All I kept hearing was how I was going to need to buy a minnow bucket and pick up a mess of them along the way. I didn't really have the means of carrying them. My truck was broke down and I was actually driving my 1969 Chevelle station wagon. Not the ideal fishing vehicle, but, if I wanted to go, it was all I had at the time.
A couple days before we left I decided I was going strictly artificial baits. I was laughed at.....at first. I stopped one afternoon at Bass Pro Shops and spent some time going through what I thought would be some good trout lures. Some I had used before and some new. I saw a section with the Mepps Trouter Kits and I picked out what I thought was the best one and went on my way. That was the best decision I made the whole trip. I say that because the decision to take the Chevelle was "not" a good one at all. Just on the outskirts of Deerfield the motor locked up in the old Chevy and I had to transfer everything into a friend's truck and head out...again.
Once we got there and got settled in for the night I was reminded about how well the minnows worked up here, so I picked out what looked as good as any minnow in the water and waited t'll morning to test my theory. On my very first cast I had a 16" rainbow, second cast a 14" third cast another 16" that went on for about 20 minutes. I had caught my limit.
I was catching 3 fish to everyone elses one. I was stunned, everywhere I went up and down that river it was the same until the middle of the 2nd day something big enough to swim upstream at about 100 mph snapped my line and swam off with the "magic lure". That one lure was tied and retied on three different rod and reel combos for a day and a half and never once stopped spinning correctly or gave any trouble. It was a mepps X-D dressed S-S with a white buck tail skirt. Though, that trip cost me over $4000, that $4 lure made it all worth it. I'd lock up two engines to fish like that again."Thanks Mepps" William S. Gray Newport News,VA.

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Trout, Brown
I love the Aglia, it is really the only lure I use when I go trout fishing any more. Thank you, Mepps.

Lure: Little Wolf
Fish Caught: Trout, Brook
After watching the video of this product it reminded me of an old lure my cousin had. The slow wobble of this spoon made it appealing to me, especially when I first tried it for spring brookies, on the first cast I reeled in and then.......Bang!!! a nice 19 inch brookie. Over the course of the next three days I caught 13 brookies. One word to describe this product awesome!
Gilbert Arroyo – El Paso, Texas
Fish Caught: Redfish
Nothing grabs the attention of a redfish quite like the shine of a Mepps Saltwater Syclops! I've tried other spoons, and spinners, even live bait but nothing works like Mepps!
