William Anderson – Private Pond In My Back Yard, North Carolina

Lure: Little Wolf

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

I headed down to my pond, (about 100'x100'), today and was going to use a spinnerbait but had fished one recently without success so I tied on a Little Wolf 2/5 oz Spoon. I figured it would be as visible as a spinnerbait in the dirty water following a hard rain and not be something the bass had seen before. Second cast I catch a 2 pounder. I should note here that these fish are extremely hard to catch because I fish it so often.
They will be very shallow on sunny days in the winter because that's where the warmest water is and if the water is dirty it's also where the visibility is best so they can feed.

William Singletary – Tusquiti Creek, North Carolina

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Rainbow

I was working in North Carolina and there was a creek right in front of the house I had rented. I hadn't had a lot of luck in it, so I went to a place called Fires Creek and caught almost my limit. Well, I came back and said let's try the creek again. I tied on a Thunder Bug I had had for years. My dad bought it for me. Well, second cast and I caught a three pound rainbow. My biggest to date for sure!

Leonard Rex – Private Pond, Johnston County, North Carolina

Lure: Comet Mino Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

I caught some nice bream with a Mepps Comet today. It always seems to produce.

Josh Shriver – Connelly Springs, North Carolina

Lure: Aglia Bait Series

Fish Caught: Trout, Brown

When I went fishing on the 19th of Jan. It was a perfect combination with a little rain and cooler around 48 degrees. The water temp was sitting about 43 degrees. I was using the crayfish single hook size 1. Had good bites and a lot of action from the trout. Landed one nice picture worthy Brown on the Jacob Fork River. Thanks to Mepps for making another great lure for trout.

By far the best spinners I have ever used. I swear by them. I literally catch my limit every time I go fishing. I will never use anything else!!

Jerry Wilson – Elk River, Avery County, North Carolina

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

I am in the high Appalachians of Northwest North Carolina. Don't let Elk "River" fool you. Like most of our cold, rugged, high mountain streams it is 50 yards wide at it's widest and normally half that on average. It is, on average knee to waist deep with pools just over my head. I am 6'2". However, it is running down a mountain and the currents, undertows, whirls and eddies make it dangerous. Our trout season opens the first Saturday in April - many times up here there is a snow covering on opening day, but the Elk is normally thawed sufficiently for fishing. From opening day until mid-September the copper, undressed Aglia, "0", single drop is THE Spinner. This spinner is effective on Rainbow until the Elk freezes over-in January usually. However, I switch to pink in the fall, because the Browns and Brookies seem to love it and few Browns or Brookies are caught before fall here. Come to Avery and Watauga counties in North Carolina to trout fish. If you have tried the Asheville area it is great trout fishing. We are 1500 to 3000+ feet above Asheville; we are a different world.

Jerry – Farm Pond, Dobson, N.C., North Carolina

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Catfish, Blue - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I have often said that most largemouth bass anglers spend a lifetime hoping to catch at least one that weighs 5 lbs., or more. Yesterday, I was "lucky" enough to catch 4 that weighed a total of 29 lbs., 15 ounces, with the larger one being 9 lbs., 5 ounces, and the "smaller" one 5 lbs., and 15 ounces. But "the big one got away'! I hooked one which I brought to the boat, and just as I reached for what looked to be a 10 + pound fish he broke the swivel, and left with my Black Fury lure. Mepps lures are the best for crappie, and bass!!

Derek – Ivy River, Asheville, North Carolina

Lure: Comet TRU-V

Fish Caught: Trout, Brook - Trout, Rainbow

This is a new lure so I thought I'd buy one just to try it out and it did not disappoint. I caught several trout using the Tru-V including the two biggest fish I caught that day. I was using the Firetiger with Black Dot, but, I'll definitely look to add a few more to the tackle box. This lure is a great addition to the Mepps line.

Mark Jones – Helton Creek, North Carolina

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Trout, Brown

These lures make up 90% of my spinning collection. These are fantastic lures that consistently provide quality/quantity. Routinely produce takes of fish 17"+ which are consider trophy size trout in this part of the country. Mixing weather conditions and times of year with these lures will produce results that typically out fish everyone else on the creek. The only bug I've not produced with is the firefly. I would love to see a damsel fly version of this with blue wings white body hint hint lol. If you never purchased one of the bugs do yourself a favor and add one to your next order.

Brandon – Lake Tillery, North Carolina

Lure: Basser Kit - Dressed #3 Aglia Assortment

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

Mepps Aglia Dressed and Black Fury absolutely make Bass strike. As a Tournament Angler, I travel lake to lake and Mepps are my go to Lures, if one color doesn't work switch up the color, and I land a Bass soon after.

Jeffrey Swaim – Private Pond, Pfafftown, North Carolina

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

The Standard Mepps Black Fury: Size #2 in traditional dress with yellow, brown, and red colored tail is the only lure I have ever fished, that I can remember as a little boy fishing where I caught 4 bass between 1 and 2 pounds apiece on every single cast from the first to the fourth and on the 5th I either hooked, snagged a large fish because the lure broke off: that's the best experience I ever had with an artificial lure period!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
