Paul Donovan – Erie Canal, New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Hi
I wanted to share this story. I live on the Erie canal. In an approximately 50 yard stretch in a single day. Over approximately a 2 hour window, I caught the 7 different species of fish that I marked above using the same #2 plain silver Aglia. I found that to be quite remarkable and wanted to share this and let you know what a great product you have.

Nick Smith – Grand Union Canal, Near Aston Clinton (UK) United Kingdom

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Perch, Yellow

An excellent lure for autumn fishing in the relatively shallow water of the canal (max. depth: 6 feet). Caught 12 fish including 9 perch - lovely hard fighters - with three to a 1.5lbs and 2 pike to 5lbs, which is excellent for this hard fished water. Autumn is the perfect time for lure fishing as the predators are hungry and fattening up for the winter. Most of the hits came in the late afternoon as the light start to fade. High contrast day of bright sun and shadow. Lure moves beautifully in the water, mimicking a small perch - it looked like the black stripes on its side. Highly recommend this lure.

Steven Johnson – Creek, California

Lure: Trout Pocket Pac - #0 Aglia Wooly Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

I scored three of these to fish a local creek. We were not catching anything until I tied one of these on. I made my first cast and reveled on how cool they look in the water. My second cast I scored a Large Mouth Bass! My friend decided to tie one on as I caught Bass #2 and #3. He also caught a Bass on his second cast. We slayed (followed by releasing) a dozen more Bass and Bluegills before the Sun went down. I will be buying lots more of these! The single hook is great! Hits were always hook ups!

Ethan Koski – Basswood Lake, BWCA, Minnesota

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

I've caught tons of fish on my Comet Mino, but the most excellent fish I caught was a 39in. northern pike. It was massive. It had a diameter of 15in. It took an hour to fillet it. And the same day I caught a huge 28in walleye. I'm for sure telling everyone I know about your guy's Comet Mino. I have never caught so many fish on one lure. I'm a 14 year old kid from Minnesota that doesn't have a job, but loves to go fishing and never, I mean never, had so much fun with one lure. I'm for sure going to save up some money to buy another one of these. I'll make sure everyone I know, knows about these.

Derrek CUmmings – Blanchard, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

Mepps are ALWAYS my go to lure. The only reason I ever switch, is to keep things interesting! But almost all of my fish have been caught on Mepps spinners! Great lure for Pike anywhere from 2ft to 12 or even deeper! The fish smash the lure so hard they almost always set the hook themselves! Mepps are just overall great lures and you never know whats gonna be on the line when you throw one and hook into something!

Luca Poggione – St. Lawrence River, Rockport Ontario Thousand Islands, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern

Only my fifth time ever fishing, and first time I used the Mepps Aglia. Caught 3 Perch, 8 Bass and 1 Pike using the Mepps Original Aglia Gold #2. My favourite lure, great all around lure, will definitely use it all the time. Just went to pick up more of them at the store. Thanks Mepps.

Dale Adams – Whitefish Lake Canada

Lure: Aglia Long

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I caught a 42" Northern Pike using a #4 Spinner (Glow in the dark lure). As a rule, I usually use the #3 Aglia Long and it catches all species in my area as well as a large variety of sizes. In my Opinion the Mepps #3 Aglia Long is the best all around fishing lure on the market.

Eric Askerud – Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota, Minnesota

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Hands down my go-to lure catches everything from perch to muskie! Everytime I fish in a group it out fishes all other lures at least 2 to 1! Thanks Mepps!

DAVID FAUST – Gasport, New York

Lure: Magnum Aglia

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

I was fishing at Wellers Bay Saturday 07/08/2017 for pike and walleye when I caught a 50 inch musky on a Mepps Comet #5 BRASS. It took probably 1/2 hour to get in his head only fit in my small net . I had to wear him out and finally had his head in the net and grabbed his tail also, to get him in the boat . I don't take my phone with me when I am up there (so I have no picture ) I was shaking with excitement for day's .

Bob Scriven – Great Sacandaga Lake, New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye - Catfish, Bullhead (brown, yellow & black)

I love my dressed aglia with a copper blade and black tail. I catch all kinds of fish with this thing. All of my friends don't believe me when I tell them I catch so many fish, until I take them out on my boat and show them. Once they see how many and how fast I catch them they all want to know how to get their own lure. So I tell them to get on the Mepps website and order their own. I have a lot of aglia lures with all different color blades and tails, but it seems the fish just can't resist the copper and black. Thanks Mepps for making fishing so much fun!!!

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Mepps Syclops hands down is the BEST Lure to use on Rainy Lake. It outperforms everything else and catches multiple species of fish. I've caught several trophy Northern over the years on this bait. I prefer size #3.

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.

Kevin – Culver Lake Branchville, New Jersey

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 :)

Mark Bell – Harwood Lake , Farmersville , New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown

The lure I reach for first, no matter what I am fishing for is a Gold size 1. It's always catching me trout at the small lake near where I live, catching my limit, even when those right near me are catching nothing. I like how it makes me look like a great fisherman by just knowing the right lure to use. People ask me what I am using and I just tell them to switch to a Mepps spinner. You made Mepps my favorite lure when you first sent me your Fishing Guide 20 years ago and I have been using them and catching fish ever since.

Mark Bell – Harwood Lake , Farmersville , New York

Lure: Little Wolf

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown

Have been using Mepps all my life. But, when I first bought a Little Wolf, it was gold. It became one of my favorites. First day I used it while fishing at a small lake near where I live in western New York, I caught 3 largemouth bass,at least 5 bluegill, a couple of crappie, and 4 brook trout in about a hour. I then passed it on to my wife so she could catch some fish, since the live bait she was using had only caught her a couple of bluegill. This gold Little Wolf and others that I have bought this season, have been producing every time.

Travis Hill – White Pine River, Cloquet River And Private Lake , Minnesota

Lure: Minos

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I love Mepps!! I only really use Mepps, not just spinners, but, I ordered replacement Minos and use them on spring crappie and sunny spawn. I catch 3 fish to everyone else's!!! How you ask? I don't have to get a minnow out of minnow bucket! Plus, I use Mepps on fly rods with a sight indicator. Between St. Croix and Mepps I will continue to dominate anyone I fish with!!!

Noland Michels – St. Lawrence River, Wellsley Island, New York

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Whenever I go out fishing anywhere I always make sure I carry AT LEAST 2 Black Fury's dressed. My personal preference is Black/Chartreuse in a #5. I have caught countless Northerns on these (and I only retire them after the paint and stickers are mostly shredded off by teeth marks). I currently have 3 of them with all of the paint stripped off and another on the way. They produce bar none. I had a fishing competition just this past week. Fishing was real rough as only 4 Northerns were caught. 3 of them were by me with the Black Fury. I have never gone out with this lure and not caught a fish. I am amazed at the successfulness of this lure and highly recommend it to all of my friends and anyone else who is reading this! Mepps has my loyalty and money for life!

Brian Kreutz – Madison, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

I LOVE the Aglia spinners. My son and I use them as a "go to" lure for pretty much anything we fish for and ALWAYS have luck when we do. Thanks for making such an awesome product Mepps!!!!

Jerry – Farm Pond, Dobson, N.C., North Carolina

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Blue - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I have often said that most largemouth bass anglers spend a lifetime hoping to catch at least one that weighs 5 lbs., or more. Yesterday, I was "lucky" enough to catch 4 that weighed a total of 29 lbs., 15 ounces, with the larger one being 9 lbs., 5 ounces, and the "smaller" one 5 lbs., and 15 ounces. But "the big one got away'! I hooked one which I brought to the boat, and just as I reached for what looked to be a 10 + pound fish he broke the swivel, and left with my Black Fury lure. Mepps lures are the best for crappie, and bass!!

Ethan – Da UP, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Steelhead - Trout, Brook - Trout, Rainbow

I've caught so many fish with these... Best lures around, IMHO. Learn how to use them properly and they will produce bites.

James Rose – Navarre Marsh, Oak Harbor, OH, Ohio

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

I bought this lure at Bass Pro Shops a while ago. While fishing in a local marina one day, nearly every cast was another catch. I have used it at fishing derby's the past two years and have won for biggest fish both years. Can't express my newly found love for these lures!

Dustin Long – Great Miami, Kiser Lake, Ohio

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye - Catfish, Flathead

From 0 to number 5 these baits always work. Best baits in the world. My go-to bait every time I'm out. These lures will catch just about everything. Caught my 38-inch northern pike out of the Great Miami River. My mounted 29-inch northern. Catch smallmouth all day long with these. Double blades are also great. Silver blades with white bucktail. Also, the ones without a bucktail with the orange plastic piece works great. Great product, good prices. Wish I could fish for a living.

Mark Schreck – Farm Pond, Maryland

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Rainbow

I felt compelled to give a testimonial on the "go-to" lure in my tackle box, the Mepps Comet Mino. I have been fishing with this lure for 35 years and it never fails to catch fish when nothing else will. I have caught many species including: Bass, Catfish, Bluegill, Perch, Trout, and Crappie. It works in ponds, rivers, lakes, and streams. In short, if I only had 1 lure to fish with, it would be the Mepps Comet Mino! Thank you for all your quality products!

John – Raritan River, Branchburg Nj, New Jersey

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Palomino - Trout, Rainbow

I went fishing at a local river on Saturday and no one around me was catching fish but me! I was the only one using a Mepps lure, everyone else was using bait. I caught my limit in 45 min. while I only saw one other person catch a trout.

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake, Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Syclops lure year after year proves to be the TOP lure in my tackle box. I used to use only orange, but have recently found that experimenting with different colors has a huge reaction to fish strikes depending on the weather, water temp, etc. This past June in Canada, Northern were chasing the orange, but slamming the silver Syclops. It made for a wonderful trip and an addition to my wall with 38" Northern with a 16" Girth. Thank You Mepps!

Roscoe Solley – NY, PA, GA, FL, Fl Keys, EVERYWHERE, Pennsylvania

Lure: Minos

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Sockeye (red) - Steelhead - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Cutthroat - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Trout, Sea/Speckled - Salmon, Chinook (king)

These Mino spinners have been one of the greatest lures I have ever used, everything likes them, to the point that I have several of each size in three different tackle boxes. When nothing is biting on anything I throw in, all I have to do is throw one of these in and let the fun begin. I prefer the chad, but also have the Rainbows just in case the weather turns bad, seems the worse the weather, the Rainbows work better. These are also good for SEA TROUT in southern FL. Great all around lures.
