Cole Rochon – Middle Range Pond, Poland, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pickerel - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I fish 5-6 days a week on my lake from early spring to late fall. Mepps spinners have always been a go to when casting for bass. Today I pulled out a Mepps from my grandfather's tackle box (guessing 30 years old.) What followed was the single most amazing hour I've ever spent on the water. In one hour, I caught over 35 fish, and more amazingly, six different types! Large mouth, small mouth, chain link, brown trout, brook trout, and rainbow trout. I'm still in awe.

Chris Kelly – North Pond, Maine

Lure: Giant Killer

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

First cast with this and I pulled in a 19 inch and approximately 7-7.5 largemouth, I have never had a largemouth fight so hard, was pretty sure it had to be a pike but to my surprise it was a giant bass

Kevin Grant – Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Brook

Hands down, my favorite lure for local brook trout and bass has been the Mepps Aglia. One of the absolute best ever from that line was the undressed treble hook Aglia with the fluorescent orange blade in a #0 or #1 weight. Lost the last one I had a few years ago. Sure do miss that lure. It absolutely slayed brookies here in Maine..

Thomas Nichols – Bangor, Maine

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth

This is my go to lure, I love this lure, what more can I say, its a "killer". If you haven't tried one DO IT!! You will not regret it. Just pick the size you need. AWESOME!!

Mark W. Emmith – Central Maine, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern

There are some days when we will fish with only one lure, and that is, the #5 Aglia dressed white with a silver blade. On every trip to Maine, we stop at Cabela's and buy as many as they have because we know they will be beaten to a pulp.
They are attacked by pickerel, smallmouth bass, largemouth bass and northern pike. It is a phenomenal lure and will oftentimes save a trip from being blah. Thanks MEPPS!

Julian – Presumpscot River, Westbrook, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Brook

I've been using my size 1 Aglia dressed treble for two days, and have already landed 6 fish with it! This lure is amazing, I would highly recommend it to anyone, and it's the first thing I go to now!

David Hartford – Pinkham Pond, Maine

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth

Imagine the surprise. We were fishing this quiet little pond with little luck. My wife switched to a #1 Comet Mino, figuring to stir up some little guys, and landed it about 3 inches from the shore and nailed into a 20 inch Bass!! Great fun!

Mark W. Emmith – Various Lakes In Mid-Maine, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern

My girlfriend and I fish #5 Mepps dressed Aglias almost exclusively in mid-Maine lakes and ponds. Depending on weather, light conditions and water color we will choose the white dressed Aglia or the yellow dressed Black Fury.

We have had to buy multiples of each lure since some days they get chomped so badly that the dressing and paint get destroyed especially by the pike and big pickerel.

We have been experimenting with other color combos based on waht we see in the online catalog as well as on the Cabela's shelf on our weekly stop in Maine.

Thanks for some great lures. We already have three patches from the Master Angler program and are hoping to each be at four before year-end.

Chris – Lakes And Rivers, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow

These lures are great. I tie one on when nothing else seems to be getting hits and they work like a charm. I carry sizes 1 through 4 in silver, gold, red/white, firetiger and orange and that pretty much covers me for anything I want to catch. My favorite is the #3 red/white, smallmouth and pickerel up here love it.

billy – kport, Maine

Lure: Bass Pocket Pac - #3 XD Dressed

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern

I bought a Pocket Pack of Mepps XD's and headed for the river. I was out-fishing my friend in no time. I had caught 1 northern pike, 3 smallmouth bass, and a large unexpected salmon all in under an hour. I just went out the other day and bought another Pocket Pack because they work so good.
