John Sheehan – New Jersey Passaic, New Jersey

Two 22"plus Chain Pickerel while trolling the 2/5th oz. Little Wolf spoon. One took it deep in the mouth but both Fish were released and swam away.

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!

Jamal Jenkins – Somerset County, New Jersey

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth

In low visibility, I've caught close to a dozen smallmouth on the same fluorescent red dot and black spinner in a few hours. Mepps gets 5 out of 5.

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!

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 :)

Dave Ray – D.o.d.ponds, New Jersey

Lure: Aglia BRITE

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth

I've fished this country from Florida to Alaska several times over. I've never caught more fish & more species with any other lure than my trusty Mepps #2 Aglia gold. My brother loves to hate it because I outfish him every time. But, eventually he puts it on.

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.

Tony Russo – Pequest River, Warren County, New Jersey

Lure: Aglia Long Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I use the Ultra-Light Aglia Long, with the gold blade almost exclusively now, unless I'm using the Aglia Long with a silver blade! It's my go-to lure and with it I've caught very many trout, and also quite a few smallmouth bass. The quality of craftsmanship is obvious - this lure looks like a piece of jewelry!

BarryBertino – Delaware River,Palmyra New Jersey, New Jersey

Lure: Musky Marabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Striped

Hello, Jim, Michael and the entire Mepps sales and distro team. I want to thank you for providing excellent yearly press releases combined with monthly newsletters. These efforts are what is the patient and appreciated job related duties and work related criteria all industry companies should be following and executing. The lack of these efforts by other industry manufacturers and distro/media companies are the main reason why the industry is in an economic downward spiral and the excuse of the nationwide economic downturn is not the scapegoat most are using.The entire Mepps Team's enthusiasm and support for anglers, sporting goods and most of all each other relate in the catches and consistant intrest many anglers still have when it comes to catching fish in both fresh and saltwater fisheries. I am proud to say that the Marabou and large Tiger Musky Marabous acquired years back were field tested in the lower branch channel of the Delaware River by a selected and historic fishing and Gun Club member known as Lenny Rychychowski. This club is dated back into the 1800's and Lenny's proficiency in angling is exceptional. The sad thing here in New Jersey is water polution, clarity and most of all the unlikely sportsmanlike fish care and fishing pressure which has been adding to a shortage in population of many species of fish. Limits and on most adventures and guides any catches are far and in between....however, the Tiger Musky Marabou and the Large sized Marabous combined with most any spinners from Mepps Gallery of a wide variety of glossy, gleaming and feathered trimmed lures which I call Chicken lures...well...Lenny caught many a Striped Bass and a heck of alot of limits of Bass and many species of panfish including perch and bowfin on a wide array of great Aglia lures from Mepps.
May I demand all other industry leaders to follow the plans of media and angler relations in which Jim and Michael follow as their passion and love of the sport coinciding with their well versed knowledge in fishing is nothing less and nothing more than good news and views for a great sense of the future for both, anglers and the forecast of Growth in Sales for stocked shelves of fantastic and productive lures. The Tradition lives on and it's a wonderful thing here at Mepps and in the USA as we are still able to see employees execute criteria which is necessary for success in both growth in catches and sales!
Lenny and I have traveled and fished extensivley for well over 43 years and national catches can be related to mostly the spirit in using Mepps products! Thanks so much again for a "JOB WELL DONE!"

PS:The Grab Bags are like taking the loot without a gun! Oddles of top of the line, up-to-date lures made with quality materials which are not degrading and falling apart as in comparison to other more expensive swimbaits and so called new and innovative lures like the Optimum Swimbaits I have field tested and watched deteriorate right before my eyes. Why pay more money for untested and testimonialed products when for a value, keep a consistant tradition alive and by Mepps Products! Don't forget...send those Squirriel tails in for the Squirriel programs are important for making quality lures backed by quality people combined with allowing hunters and anglers to make a fare market value in revenue with their bagged catches!

Keep up the Great Job and anyone who feels as though their Pro...GO MEPPS and you are a part of Tradition...Go Mepps...Go Pro!

John D – Kittatiny Lake , New Jersey

Lure: Giant Killer

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

I am not a good fisherman, but using these Mepps lures I have caught many cockroaches (northern pike). I caught so many yetserday I lost count. I also out fished everyone on the boat..Which makes me feel bad because I am the only one having fun. If you like roaches you'll love the Mepps #5!

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.

Erik Cruz – Lake Carasojo - Lakewood, NJ, New Jersey

Lure: Little Wolf

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Trout, Rainbow

This is BY FAR my favorite Mepps product. I've caught multiple species of fish with my #2 FireTiger but most memorably my first Rainbow Trout ever ! If I could recommend any lure to friends and family this is the one. I just bought the entire # 2 kit to try out at the lakes/ponds in my area.

David Jeon – Princeton, New Jersey

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Crappie (Black)

This is one of my favorite crappie lures of all time. The work best jigged underneath structure, or swam slowly and enticingly across structure and brush. My favorite colors are hot tiger, hot chartreuse, silver, gold, and monkey. But the number one producer I think is hot chartreuse or gold.

David Jeon – Montgomery, New Jersey

Lure: Trouter Kit - Plain and Dressed Lure Assortment

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

Great buy! I have caught an uncountable amount of panfish, bass, and trout with the trouter kit, including a 2-1/2 lb. bluegill! My favorite lure in the pack is the Aglia Long or Thunder Bug. I highly recommend this kit!

David Jeon – Montgomery, New Jersey

Lure: Aglia Long

Fish Caught: Trout, Rainbow

This lure is great. I have a rainbow trout silver blade with a white skirt, and it catches bass, large panfish, and trout! It's best casted about 10 ft away, or at weeds, and then immedietley drawing it in at a medium-fast rate, with pauses to let it sink, and then draw it back again, twitching the rod. The result is explosive!

Brian – New Jersey

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I caught the biggest Bluegill off of this lure. It had to be 1 or 2 pounds!
Thanks, Mepps, for making the best lures in the world. I only buy your spinners.
