Northern Pike Testimonials

Chuck – Sheboygan Falls- Sheboygan River, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia Bait Series

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern

Fishing the Sheboygan River using a #3 dressed crawfish pattern produced a day to remember. Over 200 smallmouth bass to 21" and northern pike to 31". All of this done while wade/walking a large stretch of the river. This combination is my new go-to bait to start the day with. It has consistently produced on both sunny and overcast days. Yet another great color pattern from MEPPS.

James Caldwell – Texas

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Chum - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)

I've been fishing and guiding on the Nushagak River for 15 years, an undressed Aglia with a Hot Pink blade will draw strikes from just about every species in the river and a #5 is all I want to throw at Coho.

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.

Ryan – Ottawa River, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern

Jake Robertson – Portage Lake, Michigan

Lure: Magnum Aglia

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

I caught five Northern Pike within two hours. All of them were large and gave a great fight. I used the gold version of the Magnum Aglia. Everyone else on the boat was using other lures. They caught nothing. I highly recommend the gold Magnum Aglia for Northern Pike.

Kevin Davis – Michigan

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Cutthroat - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

Best lures ever.. Hands down..
The new flashabou line is just awesome.. This is my second order this year. Although, I'm still killing the lakes in Michigan with them, I'm happy to inform that I just came back from a fishing tour around America. Outside of giving away one silver/red flashabou to a youngster in Wyoming (after I caught 9 fish on 10 casts), I fished them until I lost them. ;) Had great luck in Yellowstone (pinched barbs), Snake River(Swan valley), North Platte, Merced (Yosemite) and the Colorado River. They really work in most all Lakes and Rivers, and I caught more than 9 species, in 11 states, with the new flashabou's.. so far. ;)
If I could make one suggestion, Please make more flashabou tail colors, and have more of the Aglia spinner blade colors? ;)

Jeremy Tanner – Eagle Lake, Ontario, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern

I bought a few Mepps Lure including this one in the red, white and gold #5 for a last minute trip to Canada. This lure did not disappoint. I had several northerns caught using this lure. My biggest catch was a 41 1/2 inch Musky. The fish attacked it immediately and the Mepps held strong. Thank you for making this quality lure allowing me to catch an elusive musky.

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.

Deloria James – Great Lakes And Tributaries, Michigan

Lure: Aglia BRITE

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Crappie (Black) - Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Pink - Steelhead - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye - Salmon, Chinook (king)

At 64 I've fished extensively throughout the Upper midwest from Northern Lower Mi. to Northern Mn. and everywhere in between for over 50 years. I am never without multiple styles and sizes of Mepps spinners. They have been my "go-to" lure all my life and I've caught everything I fish for on them. They always produce when nothing else will and never disappoint. This new "Aglia BRITE is my new favorite style. It amazes me that I will catch fish with it when with buddies who are using something else get skunked. Keep supplying us with these!

John Markel – Lake St Clare, Michigan

Lure: Crawler Harness

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Catfish, Blue - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

i pulled some big ones out of the 3 ft -6 ft water with this draging it behind the boat

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!

Craig J. McCasland – Fern Lake, AuSable Forks, New York

Lure: Black Fury

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

40 in. 12.6 lbs. Northern Pike. Black Fury with orange accents. Caught in 2.5 feet of water.

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.

Peyton Lange – Perrault Falls, ON, Canada, Ontario

Lure: Aglia Tandem

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern

I am writing this not disappointed but happy. Your tandem Aglia spinner has made my Canada fishing trip. Catching not only musky but also a 37 inch Pike that absolutely destroyed the lure but not after getting the fish and many more before in the boat. What a great product.

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.

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.

Kevin McKenna – Lake Athabasca Canada, Saskatchewan , Canada

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye

In Canada with a Mepps #5 and a #5 double blade, I can control a bigger section of the water column. The Double blade is great for deeper weeds. Often, big fish feed at the edge of the weed bed on fish that are getting blown in by the wind. They are going to take the prime spot. Look for a channel that comes out, or a shallow finger that extends out a bit. With the #5 double blade and a Mister Twister tail, I can get down there and show just a little more than the plain #5. It has a little different feel, so it takes some getting used to. The double blade offers quite a bit less resistance to the water, which is what gets it down. As an added bonus, being deeper I was able to pick up Lake Trout and Walleye as well.

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 .

Jeff Mazzenga – Lake St.Clair, Michigan

Lure: Panfish Pocket Pac - #0 Aglia Dressed

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

Black Fury #3 Hot Firetiger with chartreuse dressing is my go to lure! Whenever I need to pick just one lure to have on me at all times that is it. No matter what time of day or night I have had great success. From Northerns and Musky to Bass and even perch.

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.

Robert Reeder – Any Where, Indiana

Lure: Basser Kit - #2 and #3 Aglia Assortment

Best Lure ever
If you dont have a Mepps Spinner might as well stay home
I have using them for over 40 years

William Torraca – Lago Entrepenas(Lake Entrepenas) Spain, New York

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

I was stationed near Madrid, Spain for 6 years with the U.S. Air Force. I used to go to 3 three bodies of water near each other. All three were on the way to Zaragoza, north of Madrid, nesr the city of Guadalajara. My chief and I were out on a rubber dingy going back and forth between the river and the lake. We were both using Comet Minos and in the course of 4 hours we each caught 12 Northern Pikes apiece. That is one of my best fishing memories. Sadly, the particular Mino's hook rotted out but the plastic body is still good. Are there replacement hooks for them. I'd like to rehook it and give it a place of honor on the retired shelf. Thanks for a great product. My first ever testimonial. I still have some Mepps lures and the mini tackle box they came in that I purchased in the mid 1980s. Some are pretty beat up but still combat ready! :)

Aidan Baumstark – Califon, New Jersey

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

This is possibly the greatest fishing lure ever devised, it can be fished deep, shallow, fast or, slow. I caught my personal best bass, my personal best pike, and my personal best trout on this lure. I have never had a better lure than this, the next time that I see this lure I will buy 10. Thank you, Mepps!

Suzie Takle – Boot Lake, Minnesota

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Dave Wallace – Randall Lake, Coldwater, Michigan

I have been fishing with a variety of Mepps #5 Aglia spinners this year and have had the best fishing of my life. The whole family has followed my lead and we have been catching more Pike than ever before.Just a solid product, we are all hooked on Mepps.

Joe Schmitz – Sweden Sweden

If I could have just one fishing lure in my tackle box, it would be the Mepps Aglia dressed #5 Silver/Brown. B5ST S-BR

It consistantly catch pike and large perch. For big pike, I rely on the Mepps Giant Killer.
