Matt Corliss – Upper And Lower Peninsulas, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Walleye

The Mepps #3 gold with the brown tail is by far my favorite lure in my tackle box. I will not head out fishing if I don't have one. I have caught all of the fish listed above on a gold #3 with a brown tail. I typically target Northern pike, but will frequently catch Bass, and other fish, unintentionally. The best pike I ever caught was around 40 inches, but I have caught countless others over the years. Whenever someone asks my advice on fishing, I recommend the Mepps #3 and tell them that is all they will ever need.

Glenn Miller – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Lure: Aglia Marabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Trout, Rainbow

Mepps spinner baits have always been a consistent fish catcher. I regularly use the Comet to catch bass and crappie. This past Easter I used a number 5 Aglia dressed and hooked a 40" musky. You can't go wrong with Mepps spinners.

Clint Reinhart – Bucks County, Pennsylvania

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pickerel

Awesome lure! Has caught a variety of fish and always attracts the large fish!

Caleb Taylor – Tomahawk, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky

The #5 Aglia is my favorite lure for Pike. I've caught countless Northern on these and my fair share of Largemouth and Smallmouth, but, my absolute best catch was the 45" Musky this lure helped me land.

Jonathon Satala – Illinois , Illinois

Lure: Musky Marabou

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

I have used many inline spinners and was going to start building my own because most musky spinners use a regular skirt or tinsel, I decided to try the Mepps Musky Marabou in Hot Firetiger(orange yellow and green.) Much to my surprise musky wasn't the only fish we caught with it, we caught plenty of pike on it also, but the biggest surprise was when I caught 4 largemouth in 4 consecutive casts and the smallest was 3-1/2 pounds and the largest was just over 6lb; for Illinois waters that is a rare fish on a bait for musky!!! After that day, I set my mind not to buy all the components to make my own cause the Musky Marabou is what I would use as a template, maybe when I get some free time I may build some, but for now my 16 Musky m
Marabous I bought have been doing the trick. I would recommend the bait to people but the downside is the Marabou loses the colors relatively quickly and after a number of fish the Marabou comes undone. I wish they would sell a Musky Marabou with a quick connect so you could change marabou colors, like a gold blade with one all black and another tail section with all red or red and black. I wish they would sell just the marabou pieces by themselves, out of my 16 baits only 7 are still in good condition, the others are so worn there isn't enough marabou to even cover the 2 treble hooks or the marabou is so faded you almost can't tell the colors cause they're so faded. Make a Musky Marabou with a way to change the marabou and with a clevis to be able to switch blades and it would be the perfect lure, swap blades and colors quickly, charge a little more and put a different color blade and tail with each lure as most of us musky guys would buy them all up from you!! Thanks for a great lure and hopefully you take some of my advice and I will never build my own if I can buy a reasonably priced perfect bait

David Gustafson – Lake Mille Lacs, Minnesota

Lure: Double Blade Musky Marabou

Fish Caught: Musky

In my opinion Mepps are the greatest lures on the planet. So when my uncle took me out for my first time ever musky fishing, and pulled out a Mepps Musky Marabou for me to use, I felt very comfortable and had a lot of confidence using it. About an hour into fishing, I hooked up on my first musky! Landed him, it measured 46 inches and was over 20 pounds. I'll always remember that first musky and the Mepps I caught it on.

Hoodo – Ghost Lake, Hayward, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky

I was using a #5 Mepps dressed Aglia. It was hot green with a bright green bucktail and a treble hook. I was on a one week fishing trip with Tushoes, who had already caught multiple muskellunges and walleyes, but I was get skunked by the big game. I tried my old reliable Mepps spinner and got two follow ups. I was unable to hook those monsters, though.
The trip was coming to a close and I had still not caught the big fish. Feeling desperate, I put on the lucky green Mepps #5 and threw a maximum of thirty casts, and then a fish was hooked! He jumped out of the water and threw the hook. In tears, I sloppily threw another cast, and an even bigger fish was on the line! We were able to bring him in take a picture and release him in good time.

Thank you, Mepps.

Mary Murphy – Lake Chataqua, New York

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

Hi! I LOVE fishing, but, I have not fished in years (married-husband doesn't like to fish!) I ALWAYS wanted to catch a Musky. We were invited to my in-laws house on Lake Chataqua-NY. So, I went to Dick's Sporting Goods where I picked out my lures,------thought and said to the men helping me,"Musky Killer, its pretty and looks like a fur coat on the end!" They laughed and said it was funny how I was picking out my lures by look. Anyway, we got to the lake and I started with a pretty silver lure. After a while when that didn't get any attention, I reeled it in and said, " Ok that's it, time to break out the "Musky Killer". After 2 try's-the Musky hit on the third! I thought that I had snagged some seaweed but felt a pull to the right and something large on my line. When I saw the Musky as I was reeling it in closer to the boat I said, " I think I caught a Musky!" Everyone on the boat didn't believe me until they saw it! The Musky I caught and released was 32inches. My Dad loved fishing, flying, and golf. He would always show-off the Musky he caught at Lake Chataqua when he was younger. When he was dying from cancer, I told him I would get a hole in one or try to catch a Musky for him. Well, 1st I thank you God! I also want to thank Mepps for making pretty lures that work! Thank you also to my in-laws and Family for use of their boat, and especially my father-in-law, Gordy, who was our fishing guide that day, and took the hook out of the Musky's mouth for me!

Jonathon – Delivan Lake, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Marabou

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

Never been a big fan of bucktails as they have never produced as well as some other baits. I had to try a Musky Marabou 'cause of how fluffy it looked in the package. I bought one to try and now I have basically every Musky Marabou Mepps makes. I like to troll over the weeds with the Marabou and have caught a ton of largemouth over 5lbs???? Who would have thought largemouth would attack the Musky Marabou, but, they do; and, there all monster bass no small guys with this lure. it also has caught me more northern than I can count, the largest being 45-inches, and we have only got a couple of smaller 35 or so inch musky, go figure the Musky Marabou has caught me some of my biggest bass and pike and only a couple of smaller musky. Once the big musky start to come a little shallow late in the season, I'm sure that will change! Thanks Mepps, but I think you need to re-name the Musky Marabou to the predator Marabou 'cause it catches all the predators.

Don Nerangis – Lower Manitou Lake, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky

On June 16, 2014, during my fishing trip to the Manitou Weather Station, Lower Manitou Lake, I caught a 51 1/2 "Clear" Muskie weighing 44 pounds with girth of 28 inches.

This, according to Kris, owner and manager of the camp is the largest Muskie caught in the approximate 9 years they have owned the camp.

This was done using a plain silver # 5 Mepps with 10 pound line and light gear. Further I caught a 32 1/2 inch Muskie and a 30 1/2 Walleye using the same lure and gear the same week.

Ryan – Kewaskum, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer

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

It brings a tear to my eye every time I think about this lure. The white blade and white tail Musky Killer has produced more fish for me than any other lure. I caught a 49 inch muskie last summer with this lure and countless northern and smaller muskie. It is a feeding frenzy every time it is thrown in the water. You can run it as shallow as you want and even have the blade create a wake on the surface. Perfect for shallow casting over weeds for monster fish. If you throw this lure you will not be disappointed. Great job on the lure, Mepps.

Henry – Gilmore Lake, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Musky

I was fishing with my father when I saw the musky. Well, I threw on a whole assortment of lures, but, only my Mepps spinners were coaxing it. So, finally I threw on a Black Fury and bam! 4-foot monster.

Jordan LeClere – Brushy Creek, Webster City, Iowa

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I am a huge fan of the lime green(chartreuse dot) colored #3 Black Fury spinner. When I look back at all of the fish I have caught recently, 90% of them have been caught using the Black Fury. I love this lure! It is the only lure in my tackle box and I will go in after it I lose it on a snag (speaking from experience!!) I have even converted one of my non-believer friends into using them. I guess he finally got tired of watching me catch all the fish while he got skunked. Please, please, please NEVER STOP MAKING THIS LURE!!!! Thank you for such a great product and all of the joy it has given me in my fishing adventures!!

Sincerely,
Jordan

Kim Gooden – Lake Plantagenet, Minnesota

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern - Walleye

In July of 2011 I was fishing (trolling) on Lake Plantagenet using a #4 Mepps Dressed Aglia Hot Firetiger with a brown tail when I caught a 41 inch Musky. You can only imagine how excited I was to catch the "fish of 10,000 casts" - especially since we weren't fishing for Muskies and none of us had ever caught one before! But the story doesn't end there. One year later, in July of 2012, I caught two more Muskies using the SAME LURE on the SAME LAKE in the SAME SPOT! What incredible luck - or what an incredible lure!! I love my Mepps!

Ryan M. – St. Louis River, Duluth, Minnesota

Lure: Syclops Lite

Fish Caught: Musky

A few casts into my very first time using my new Syclops Lite lure, I landed a 27" musky. Fishing from shore, off a pier, it hit the Silver-Hot Orange/Lime lure just off the weedline.

Jim Curtiss – Eagle Lake , Ontario , Canada

Lure: Magnum Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

I caught a lunker 45 inch Muskie on a Mepps Magnum Musky Killer. We caught several more fish including Pike, Smallmouth and Walleye all on the same orange and black bucktail.

Jason Allen – Endicott, New York

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

If I had one lure to use to catch a big Musky, I would choose the Mepps Musky Killer with gold blade and yellow- enough said!

John Wagner – Phillips Chain Of Lakes, Phillips, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Musky

I am 13 years old, and I was fishing with my uncle and dad in Wisconsin. For almost the whole trip, I was fishing the Mepps Black Fury Killer Combo number 4. I was catching a lot of small nothern pike. Then, I cast and hooked into a once in a life time musky. It was 46 inches long. I am glad that I was using the Black Fury and will be telling my friends about my catch and lure that made it happen. Awesome!

Barry Klatt – Minocqua, Wisconsin

Lure: H210

Fish Caught: Musky

Barry Klatt, Rollie and Helens Musky Shop Guide. I have been using the new H210's with my guide service the last two years, WOW what a difference they have made. Mepps really hit a homerun with this one. We are consistently having multiple fish days. Mepps thanks for this great lure!

Alex – Big Stone Lake, Dog Lake, Three Lakes, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern

First cast had a 20" northern follow it right to the dock. I could have reached down and grabbed it caught that and a 30" musky and a 40" musky all on a medium speed retrieve.

Jordan – All Over

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Pike, Northern - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

This lure is amazing! I had one that lasted me 2 years of heavy use until it got snagged and the line broke. But, it paid its dues producing well over 100 fish, mostly pike, and now I'm ordering 5 more I'm so impressed, best lure ever! Its practically cheating.

Susan S – Cedar Lake, Canada - Gile Flowage, Hurley WI, Illinois

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

Yep, these lures catch about almost anything and everything. Size of what a Mepps can catch that is alive, ranges from minnows to children and everything in between (in my father's case that is). When you put on a Mepps Aglia it feels like you're cheating in the fishing world, it's just that damn good. Anyways the colors my family have used and been successful on are: orange painted with either the black or grey tail, the Brown Trout with a grey tail, the Rainbow Trout paint with white or grey tail, silver blade and white tail, hot pink paint and black tail with a red feather down the middle. Really every single one of the colors works, if the color you have isn't working, keep switching to a different color until you find one that works. To cut down your searching time, ask other people at the dock or on the lake fishing what color they have been catching fish on, or go by how dark or light it is outside. Dark colors on a dark day and bright colors on a bright day. Oh, and we use size #'s 3,4,5,and Musky Killers.

Austin – Lake St Clair, Michigan

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Musky

I got two Mepps Comet Mino lures a size 2 and 4 both with silver blades. The next day I rode my bike to lake St Clair and fished I was fishing with worms and not getting much. So, I decided to do some casting. I was using the size 2 for largemouth or a small pike, but, on my third cast hooked in to a 38.5 inch musky. No leader, no net, and 8lb test. Being on the end of the pier, I had to walk it down to the rocks where I grabbed it, measured it and tried to weigh it, but, my scale bottomed out at 14lb. Wrecked the lure, but. it was worth it considering I got it for free. Plan on getting more. It's a great lure, you never know what you will get with it.

Steve Heiting – Lake Of The Woods, Ontario , Canada

Lure: H210

Fish Caught: Musky

I just returned from two weeks on Lake of the Woods' Northwest Angle, where I fished the H210 right alongside other similar lures. The H210 was not only as effective at triggering muskies as the other lures, but my partners and I were impressed with how much better it cast -- both for accuracy and distance -- thanks to its jointed design. When we found the color the muskies wanted we were all able to take advantage because we were able to mix the blades with the tails, again thanks to the jointed design. And when we unhooked our fish we found the H210s were not bent up as often happens with other lures. Mepps has hit a home run with this product.

Lucas – Lac Vieux Desert, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

Took our annual fishing vacation this summer with the hopes of catching my first musky! We arrived Sunday night and by Monday night I had caught my first musky(41 inches)and I owe it all to my Mepps Muskey Killer!!!

Dan M – Tiger Cat Flowage, Hayward, Wisconsin

Lure:

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

The Musky bite on the lake was slow until we started throwing the Black Fury in #5 and Musky Killer sizes. Now we regularly boat 6+ musky in a week on this lure! As a bonus, we can't keep Northern Pike off the lines while trying to catch Musky. They love these lures even more.

Mark D. – Clearwater Lake, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

Caught in the first hour of my fishing vacation - a 45" Musky on a Mepps Musky Killer. Caught a 36" Musky the next day.

Joel DeBoer – Wisconsin River, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Marabou

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern

The Mepps Musky Marabou is one of the most productive lures day-in and day-out in my boat. As a full-time musky guide, I need lures in my arsenal that I can count on to produce fish, even under the most adverse of circumstances - the Musky Marabou does just that! While the bait works well from opener through fall, it really seems to be at it's peak during the summer months when worked on a medium to fast retrieve - use a quick crank of the reel handle several times during the retireve to get the marabou to really pulsate, and hang on as a monster pike or musky hammers it!

Julie Curtes – Perrault Lake, Canada, Wisconsin

Lure: Magnum Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Musky

I have been using your Silver bladed, black bucktail Magnum Musky Killer for about 5 years now. In 2005 I caught my biggest musky to date, which was 45" and 30 lbs on Perrault Lake in Northwestern Ontario. I retired that bait and replaced it with the same Magnum Musky Killer. Since then I have caught many large northerns and small muskies. And now this past Saturday I caught my 2nd biggest musky which was 43". The fish almost swallowed the bait whole. I love this bait and plan on purchasing a new one soon. My replacement is about out of life. Thanks so much!!

Jacob Kemp – Pewaukee, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Marabou

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

I have only been into musky fishing for a couple of years and this lure was the best one I have used to date. I started musky fishing at 10 years old and always look forward to opening morning. I caught my first musky on a yellow, green and orange tail(Firetiger). This fish measured 39" and is still one of the biggest fish I have ever caught.
