Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Perch, WhiteI have caught many nice White Perch on Mepps Aglias, but once again I was thoroughly convinced that the biggest ones come on the Size 5 dressed Firetiger with the yellow row of beads. Today 6/23/16 about two hours into the outgoing tide, around 12:50 PM, next to a concrete bridge abutment I had that unmistakeable load up and agressive pull down of a very large WP. My river pole is an old 9' Berkely 70s vintage surf rod with Penn CC5000 reel and 50lb braid tied direct to the Mepps and 90lb test snap swivel for a little extra weight and movement in the tide. The perch was easily over two lbs and made a powerful run for cover in the tide. The NJ State salt water record is 2lb 12oz and I'm certain we were very close to 2-1/2 with this one.
Lure: Black Fury
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Walleye - BarracudaI bought the lure being a little skeptical seeing not very many reviews or product testing; even on YouTube there wasn't much. I bought the Black Fury in sizes 1,2 and 3. The number 2 & 3 are awesome! It's almost every other cast you'll get something on the Black Fury. The catch was almost 3lbs and I just recently caught an 8lb largemouth. It's an awesome lure and is a fish magnet. A must have for anybody who loves to throw a lure around.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - BarracudaThe dressed XD size 3 with white (silver blade) and yellow (gold blade) is a killer for the hybrids. I tend to troll with these lures and it doesn't take long. It also attracts all the other fish in the lake. If it wasn't for the pickerel I wouldn't need to order so many of these :)
