White Perch Testimonials

Thomas Verhoeven – Albertkanaal Belgium

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Perch, White - Pike, Northern - Snook

I want a testimonial, because I love Mepps spinners. I catch so many fish with them.

Dave Wilson – Rahway River, Carteret NJ, New Jersey

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Perch, White

I 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.
Thanks for my PB White Perch!

Lure: XD

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Barracuda

The 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 :)

Don Nelson – Coffee County Lake, Kansas

Lure: Bass Pocket Pac - #3 XD Dressed

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Walleye

I have been trolling spinners and crankbaits for 30 years. I have tried every spinner on the market. For 2 years I fished the pro bass circuit in the 70s. I fish at least 2 days a week. When you are tolling there is absoleutly nothing that will catch as many fish as the Mepps XD spinners. You need to use a ball bearing swivel and 10lb braid line or 8lb monofilament line. Saturday my son and I went fishing and caught one 5lb Walleye, 3 crappie over 12" and 19 white bass on these Mepps XD spinners. We also caught 12 hybrids that were an average of 2 lbs. And, we threw back 6 crappies over 11" long. The Mepps XD is the most reliable bait you can use while casting or trolling.

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!

Bassman – Lake Livingston, Livingston, Texas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow

I've been bass fishing for 35 years, I caught my first 9 1/2 lb bass on a Fluorescent Orange Mepps Black Fury . Chartreuse Mepps Black Fury #3 is my best friend. When I don't want to search a long time for bass, I'll use the Black Fury, with the first 2 cast if I don't get any hits I'll move. Normally within 2 cast the fish are there. I've caught 2 to 3 lb crappie easy. This is the BEST lure made , next to the plastic worm . lol

B. Gross – Ramapo River, New Jersey

Lure: Spin Flies

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

Great lures. They never let you down. Great when used on an ultra-lite spinning rig. At times I only use these when I go fishing. I only wish they were more readily available through local stores.

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.

Andrew – Lake In Crossplains, Texas, Texas

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker)

The dressed Mepps Thunder Bug is an awesome lure! I was at my deer lease close to Crossplains, TX when I was catching panfish left and right! I also caught crappie and largemouth bass. When nothing is catching fish, the Mepps Thunder Bug does! If you buy this lure, it will be worth your money!!!

Eric Klingeman – SandyBeach Lake, Canada, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

This lure catches everything from small panfish all the way up to the big northern pike. Fish this lure everywhere you would a normal spinner.
I fished this lure and my dad fished a regular Mepps spinner and I caught 3 times as many fish as he did. This lure is the best for hatches af any sort of fly bugs, the best is the may fly hatch in Canada.
