Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - WalleyeNew to fishing, my husband gave me a bunch of his lures to start off my tackle. One was a Mepps Aglia #3, rainbow trout with pink beads. He’d had it for over a decade and never used it (too pink). It quickly became my go-to. Out catching hubs. Shortly after catching 7 fish (bass, pickerel, pike) I caught a trophy sized bass!!! Sadly a huge pike, decided he liked it so much, he just had to have it.... I am desperately searching for a replacement- but believe it’s discontinued. I have friends all over Canada searching their local tackle shops for it.
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)I discovered the Mepps dual blade aglia spinner last year and have not put it down since. This lure catches just about everything that my ponds and lakes have to offer. I had never caught salmon, pike, walleye, or trout until I started using this lure. The bass LOVE it. I troll alot and using this lure on 1 rod and a different lure on the other rod, I will catch 90% on the dual blade. Can't say enough about it. Thank you for producing quality products.
Lure: Black Fury
Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, YellowI originally bought this lure back in 1980. This lure was my favorite lure to fish from in the canal I had in back yard in North Lauderdale Florida while I was in Elementary school. I could catch bluegill and brim all day long with this lure. Now move forward 40 years later. I just started getting back into fishing and dusted off my childhood tackle box. I caught a fish on the first cast with this lure in Lake Anna Virginia. I then caught 5 more within 15 minutes only to get the lure snagged and my line snapped. My heart sank, at the loss of this lure and to my pleasant surprise I looked online and found that this same exact lure is still being made and sold. I instantly bought the same one I lost and then a couple new ones in other sizes and colors. Thank you Mepps! Your loyal customer.
Lure: Giant Killer Mino
Fish Caught: Pike, NorthernNothing in my tackle box has had more bites. That poor, rubber minnow has suffered such abuse at the teeth of many a pike. I won't go fishing without this.
