Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Carp - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow

I am a 45 year old woman I have been fishing since I was 3 years old. First started with my grandfather. He had always used nothing but Mepps spinners. So I followed in his foot steps. I try new lures on occasion but have found its a waste of time for me. I will only use Mepps to catch the fish!!! They are the best!!

Martin Samelson – Lily Pond, New Gloucester, Maine, Maine

Lure: Comet Combo

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth

Mepps has made me into a spinnerbait fan with the #3 Comet Combo. This morning at 8am I paddled my kayak along the western side of Lily Pond, made a cast using the chartreuse Mister Twister that came with the Comet. I thought the cast up was too close to the shore but I reeled it back slowly anyway, and "wham," a nice 1 lb. largemouth hooked up. Over the years I've thrown a Mepps occasionally but now I'm convinced.

Did I mention this is the second time the Mepps Comet with a Mister Twister / chartreuse has delivered?

What are you guys gonna due next?

Lure: Minos

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

The Perch Mino and Rainbow Blade combo is crazy. I have had multiple musky over 40" hit it. Make sure you are using the correct gear.

Brian Willms 414 Outdoors – Up North, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer Bait Series

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

In my opinion the Mepps Musky Killer is the most versatile multispecies fishing lure you can pitch. It is a perfect size allowing you to catch a multitude of different species.

While casting the Mepps Musky Killer Bait Series in Walleye color I was able to catch a Musky 40”, Pike 34” Smallmouth Bass 21” & Walleye 24.5” all on the same lake, in the same day on the same bait within 4 hrs of getting on to the water @ sunrise.

Do yourself a favor and try some of the new Mepps Musky Killer Bait Series color schemes. You won’t regret it!

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Catfish, Channel - Pike, Northern

I'm just honestly thankful these products exist. Just had one of my best days ever trying out new Double Bladed Mepps spoon/spinner, absolutely killed the largemouth. Caught some pike, small mouth and a totally unintentional channel catfish. Just turned my buddy onto these too, he wasn't having any bites and after I reeled 3 in he walked over and went through my bag for one and started landing them. Made for some awesome photos and an awesome day. Can't say enough good things about Mepps products without sounding like I'm getting paid to write this. When the fishing gets tough, I'll always carry a Mepps spoon/spinner and slap it on and can almost guarantee something. Mepps Aglia 5 treble hook single/double blades will get just about anythings attention and get you on some fish. Great lures.

Charles W Taylor – Virginia

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

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

There is something about that extra flash that will out fish other baits. A number 1 slow rolled will slay trout. I have also caught my person best bluegill on a number 3 along with a 4.5lb bass on a number 1.

Kevin Osina – Bethany Lakes, Allen, Texas

Lure: Thunder Bug

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

This lure works like magic. You throw it, they bite!!

Gabe Resto – Bell Creek, Wicomico River In Salisbury, Maryland

Lure: Aglia Ultra Lites

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

I tied on my ultra lite for the last couple casts to see if anything would bite a lure instead of nightcrawler, and two casts later my personal best bass waked out of the brush and slammed it. The perfect lure!

Luke Rice – Private Pond, Calhoun GA., Georgia

Lure: Aglia Flashabou

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

The Mepps Aglia Flashabou is a great lure. I used the chartreuse blade and chartreuse tail color (size 2) in a stocked pond and caught a cooler full of fish. I caught one nice bluegill, four or five small bass, and about a dozen rainbow trout. Two of the trout were about two pounds a piece! I lent my trusty silver Mepps Mino to the owner of the pond, but he only caught one trout and one bass with it (most of the time I love to use the Mepps Mino). Today I used the right color and was well rewarded. Thank you one again Mepps for making the World's #1 Lure.

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

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

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!!!!!

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!
