Largemouth Bass Testimonials

Bill Danfield – Wisconsin River, Rhinelander, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

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

This is my "go to" bait under most conditions --- I've caught a few legal muskies using the # 5 BLACK FURY despite it's size and recommend it for kids to use on spinning tackle for lots of action -pretty much guaranteed !

They slam it and hook ups are pretty much 100%

I always have a couple in the boat and if fishing is slow I can be pretty sure I'll at least have action using the Mepps # 5 Black Fury.

My best experience was going out with my son and putting on a new Black Fury -and catching a legal musky -1st cast !!!

Ralston Heath – East Lake Toho Florida, Florida

Lure: Thunder Bug

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

I originally bought one from a store because I thought it was cool looking (something different). Since then I have caught a lot of fish with it. Including the ones I checked above and add in Florida Gar. After only a year, it is seriously bent, beat, chewed, and wore out. But still catching fish. I consider it my don't get skunked lure.
Since it has seen such abuse, I ordered nine more. Best lure since the Comet Mino. PLEASE, keep making them. If not, let me know when you are going to stop making them so I can stock up.

John Hunter – Tinicum, Pennsylvania

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Striped - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Snakehead

The Mepps number 5 dressed Aglia is my favorite freshwater lure. Its my number one lure for bass and snakehead. It catches anything that swims in freshwater!

Luke Rice – Lake Ocoee, Tn, Tennessee

Lure: Comet Mino

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

The Mepps Mino is the best lure I have used yet. If you want to catch fish, this is the lure to get. Yearling Bass eat this like candy. Thank you Mepps for making such a great lure.

Bob – Brunswick Hills, Ohio

Lure: Syclops

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

The silver with red is money. I fish this at the dock in the morning and afternoon before and after walleye fishing on Lake Erie. I can remember only one time I didn't catch a bass of some type. The guy I fish with on Lake Erie was so impressed with it that he had to have one. He also has a lot of success with it.

I lost one after a giant sheepshead slammed it at the dock. broke my line and took off with the lure. Had to buy another one and upgraded the line so it didn't happen again.

Ralston Heath – Lake Tohotakaleaka FL., Florida

Lure: Comet Mino Ultra Lites

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

I use the 00 Comet Mino as my "unfair" advantage, so I never go home skunked. When nothing else works this lure does. Caught lots of 'gills and bass. Too bad they don't make the gold mino anymore, but mine still works.

Captain Jeff – Chautauqua Lake, New York

Lure: Grab Bag Specials

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

You can't beat the Mepps grab bag specials!! They always give you a great assortment of spinners and colors. I use these regularly with customers, The Aglia, Black Fury, Syclops, Musky Killer are just a few of my favorites. Love of the surprise of what's in the grab bag since they are always different. And I like trying spinners and colors I would not have normally chosen, then have them catch lots of fish. Thank you Shep/ The Mepps Man! -Capt Jeff

Mike Buroni – Bartlett Lake, Arizona

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Channel

First two casts returned two different bites, two different species. I had no idea channel cats would attack the Mepps. Good job guys, I am forever a believer.

John Villegas – Marcell, Minnesota

Lure: Comet Combo

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

Excellent lure when fishing near or in lilipads. The combination is as advertised and virtually weedless.

Bruce Purpura – Downeast Maine Lakes And Ponds, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)

I discovered the Mepps dual blade aglia spinner last year and have not put it down since. This lure catches just about everything that my ponds and lakes have to offer. I had never caught salmon, pike, walleye, or trout until I started using this lure. The bass LOVE it. I troll alot and using this lure on 1 rod and a different lure on the other rod, I will catch 90% on the dual blade. Can't say enough about it. Thank you for producing quality products.

Silver Mepps No. 4 are the best, most consistent lure I’ve ever used. Over my lifetime the biggest, and the most fish I’ve ever caught were all on Mepps.

Mark W Brooks – Maine

Lure: Comet Combo

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Pickerel - Trout, Brook - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)

This Comet Combo is a sure thing for catching trout, salmon, and bass.
Great for fishing in Maine's lakes, ponds, rivers, & streams.
Very hard to find them for sale in stores.

David Fairly – Tanks Central Texas, Texas

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black)

I was always a true believer in spoons and live bait. A good friend of mine ask me what I was fishing with and just as I said before. He was knocking the fish out at every cast. Well I guess he felt sorry for me. he gave me a #5 Mepps and the fish never stopped hitting that day and still to this day I am a true believer in this life and consider this to be the world's best lure.

Skipp Washington – Village Oaks Man-made Lake, Novi, Michigan

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Sunfish (shellcracker)

This is truly an extremely versatile lure. In one day and on the same lure (#2 Thunder Bug Bumble Bee), I caught 9 med. largemouth Bass, 4 Bluegill, 2 Crappie, 1 huge Pumpkinseed, 2 massive Bull Bream. I have but one suggestion, make this in a size #3 and you will have covered all the game fish in the Sunfish family, including big Largemouth and Smallmouth. Something about the sonic properties of this lure fish find irresistible! All in a days work.

Skipp Washington – Detroit River, Detroit, Michigan

Lure: Flying C

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth

This is a unique lure designed for Salmon but I've caught nothing but big Bass (Largemouth and Smallmouth). The one I have is an older FLYING-C, #4 Silver Blade, (Yellow) sleeve not the Chartreuse(Greenish), single hook, no trailer. Absolutely fantastic action and flash. Now I know why they're called FLYING-C's, they cast a country mile and can be fished at any depth by varying retrieve speed. Great for Walleye and Silver Bass too!

Kip Lohmiller – Lake Poygan, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bowfin - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (Black) - Pike, Northern - Walleye - Catfish, Flathead

As a kid I grew up using Mepps, in WI and MN. The 21 years I was in the Army, I didn't fish at all. After retirement my wife told me, I needed a hobby, so I took up fishing again, after nearly 25 years. And went and bought a bunch of Mepps and other lures. I can't lie, I am a spinner loving fisherman. Over the last 3 years I have used Mepps almost exclusively. And mainly the Aglia dressed #5 and #3. I have caught tons of fish with them, from Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike, Small Mouth, Walleye, Bowfin, Crappie, Catfish, and White Bass. I have been to Mepps in Antigo three times with friends to take the tour and get resupplied on my selection. Each time Bev and the crew have been awesome, and a big thanks to them.
Last year Mepps came out with the Aglia Bait series, and I ordered several different ones, but the Frog was my new go to spinner. I caught probably 6 northern over 32" and tons of bass, small and large mouth, I caught walleye, white bass and more. There are two really memorable days this last season that I would like to share. 1st, Troy and I went out in the morning on Lake Poygan and he was using the Dirty Shad and I was using the Frog, both from the Aglia Bait Series. Up until late afternoon I caught all Large Mouth and Troy caught all Northern Pike. Later that day things change up and we caught 8 White Bass in about 15 minutes and then I started to catch northern on my Frog and Troy, bass on his Dirty Shad. We caught 30 fish that day, it was crazy...... 2nd, My brother in law came up to visit and he has been fishing his whole life so its always a competition. The last day Troy, Jim and myself went out for a day of fishing. Jim "my brother in law" threw everything in his tackle box to include some crazy looking blue gill lure. Troy and I only used Mepps Bait Series. Troy and I caught a total of 20 fish, 10 apiece and Jim caught 4. A great way to end a week of fishing.......
On December 30, 2019 Troy and I went up to Mepps for a tour and to have some lures custom made. The tour was great and Troy and I put in our order. Troy got his lures the next day, WOW. I got mine on the 1st, WOW. The whole team up in Antigo was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot Mepps, you build the best lures and have the best customer service!!!!!!!! Troy and I are going to do some bass tourneys this year with only Mepps just for fun...... Have a great year!!!!!

Lure: Comet Combo

These #4 Comet Twister Combo's work great in 1-6ft of semi weedy areas for Large mouth bass. I can't find these in stores anymore.

Cole Rochon – Middle Range Pond, Poland, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

Dear Mr Mepps,

I use your lures through out the open water season. Amazingly, I catch 8 different species on them in my lake. Tonight I caught a trophy large mouth. 6" mouth, what a fight. She is going to the taxidermist in the morning. Thank you again!

Tony Grimm – Kaw Lake, Oklahoma

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Striped - Catfish, Channel

The dressed Aglia is truly a remarkable lure. I went fishing at Kaw Lake and caught 5 different species out of the first 6 fish. Striper, Wiper, Largemouth Bass, Needlenose Gar and 2 Channel Catfish. For a lure that has been in production since 1938, that really says something about it’s effectiveness and the company that makes these great lures. I would like to send a big thank you to Mepps and the employees that work in Wisconsin and in France for building such great lures.

I usually don't catch that much fish, but when I use my Mepps I catch a lot of fish of different species! Best lures in the world no doubt!

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.

Charles W Taylor – Barboursville, Virginia

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Trout, Rainbow

This is the only bait that I have ever used that can catch 3lb largemouth and 3lb rainbows from the same spot using a #2 silver blade with black tail. I need to get more colors just wished they were not so hard to find in the stores in Virginia.

Avery Woods – Pine Lake Waverly Ohio, Ohio

Lure: Comet Mino

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

Best product I've ever used is the Comet Mino #3 Shad to catch large and small mouth bass!

Skipp Washington – Village Oaks Lake, Novi, Michigan

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White)

The Thunder Bug is extremely versatile and durable. I've caught Largemouth, Crappie, Bluegill, Pumpkinseed all on the same lure (Bumble Bee), all in the same lake, all on the same day! It casts a country mile, an advantage fishing from shore, and comes in great Match-the-Hatch colors. The weight allows count-down capabilities which puts you at the right depth for Strikes. Hydrodynamic and sonically sound. These lures do not spook fish. I only wish they made these in sizes 4 and 5 with fluorescent colors, perfect for big Bass, Walleye and Salmon. Hint, hint!!

Ryan – Ottawa River, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern

I used the blue platinum Syclops #2. I caught 3 pike between 24-34" and a decent sized largie all within 30 mins. Best fishing day of the year.

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

Joe – Pennsylvania

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Carp - Crappie (Black)

I just bought this lure a week ago, out fishing twice and have caught 4 different species. Great lure!
