Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Kokanee - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)In the annual Soldotna Trustworthy Ice Fishing Derby, which covers the lakes on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, I caught a "Strait Flush" (char, kokanee, lake trout, rainbow and pike) using the #1 Mepps Syclops in Hot Orange. It also caught the largest grayling on the #1. In fact, it was the exact same lure! (I never lost it) I can't say enough about how great this lure is for ice fishing although I catch fish all summer on it as well.
Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Salmon, Kokanee - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowHere is another great lure from Mepps. These little guys catch tons. They can out fish live bait on any given day and pound for pound, I can catch twice as many trout as a guy with flies can in an hour. I recommend these to anybody who sees me with them and they sometimes see me again and show me how their tackle box is now filled with them. Thanks for another great lure Mepps and countless more great fish!
