Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Sunfish (shellcracker)I'm a long-time Mepps fisherman. Just recently tried the Thunder Bug line. I'm catching an astonishing number of panfish on the Cricket color (dark gray), both single and treble hooks, both plain and dressed. Can't wait to try the other colors.
Lure: Aglia Streamer
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Trout, BrownBought them in Maine never having tried them before. Typically fish for Bass with soft baits and other spinners. With other guys in the boat catching nothing, these still find fish. Completely sold on them for all types of fishing in New England. Stronger hooks would be better though. Heavier set ups would be nice too for bigger fish. The treble hooks do make for a few more landings. I find the brown color works best for more species, but all have caught fish every time I tie one on the line. I would absolutely buy a wider variety of larger sizes and colors if they were available.
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernWe recently took a week of vacation to Lake Winni in Northern Minnesota with my cousin, for some Pike fishing. Not fished for these fish much before, I tried the normal spoon style lures you hear about. The first day I only caught one Norhtern late in the afternoon. Day 2, I switched over to the only lure I had been able to find at any store, which was the #3 Silver Syclops. I had been told to try to get some of these lures but we could not find a store anywhere that had them, except for one little sporting goods store in Minnesota that had 1, #3 Silver Syclops! I immediately started catching fish and this lure became the hot lure of the trip. I was amazed! There were times when I was the only one catching fish on the boat! I had a hot streak on one afternoon of 7, 30" plus Northerns in about 30 minutes! It was a blast! After a week of Pike fishing and loosing track of fish count caught, (I caught and landed at least 35 large northerns) I am completely sold on these lures. Alot were in the low 30" range weighing around 9 - 10 pounds each. It was awesome! I am going to stock up on more Syclops #3 lures for the next trip! Thanks Mepps!
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)I was using a Mepps Aglia #3 hot orange. On my third cast, I caught a 9 1/2 lb 30 inch Chinook. I've been fishing since I was 5 years old. I'm 41 and have used Mepps my whole life. I LOVE THESES LURES.I don't know how many fish I've caught with Mepps lures but I have confidence every time I use them.
