Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Steelhead - Trout, LakeAbsolutely lights out when it comes to lake trout spawning in Lake Michigan. The lakers come in the shallows and they crush the #5 silver Mepps like it's their first meal they've ever seen! Time and time again, I've used them and I have caught more fish than anyone that fishes lake trout in the fall. Great product and great times!
Lure: Black Fury
Fish Caught: SteelheadSo, it was a thunderstorm kind of day; warm, rainy, sunbreaks, typical. I decided, hey, I'm gunna head down to Cedar and see if I can get me a fish or two. I had bought 2 Bluefox MJ's #4 knowing that with those I was going to get something. I get down to the river about 6:30pm, not as many people, so that was going good. There was one guy fishing where I wanted to fish, so, I just went down stream 15 yards or so. First cast, snag my brand new spinner up, put on my other MJ and continue casting and I make it about 15 casts before I lose that spinner. I used two more Bluefoxs in the process, losing a total of 4 spinners. There's a lot of line out in the water. So, I look in my tackle and see I have a Black Fury spinner #3 and I say what the heck.. 3 casts in, and a few prayers, and I thought I snagged up on some line again, next thing I know a huge fish is jumping out of the water and I'm thinking, whoa, looks like a fish. Then I realize I have the fish on. Yahooo!!! I landed that baby she weighed just over 11 lbs and had eggs. It was chrome and beautiful. Thank you Mepps.
Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Steelhead - Trout, Brook - Trout, RainbowI've caught so many fish with these... Best lures around, IMHO. Learn how to use them properly and they will produce bites.
Lure: Spin Flies
Fish Caught: Steelhead - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, RainbowI love the Mepps SPINFLY in the wollyworm pattern because where I come from you either match the forage the fish are eating or you're going home empty handed. So, the wollyworm pattern in the green or brown work fantastic in the streams and rivers around my house. There is also the occasional steelhead in the streams and when they catch a glimpse of the SPINFLY, they'll hit it in an heartbeat. I also love the fact that I can use the #00 SPINFLY on my Redington fly rod, but, I prefer the #0 SPINFLY on my ultralight rod and reel. Overall, I LOVE the Mepps SPINFLY in the wollyworm pattern.
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Sockeye (red) - Steelhead - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Cutthroat - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Trout, Sea/Speckled - Salmon, Chinook (king)These Mino spinners have been one of the greatest lures I have ever used, everything likes them, to the point that I have several of each size in three different tackle boxes. When nothing is biting on anything I throw in, all I have to do is throw one of these in and let the fun begin. I prefer the chad, but also have the Rainbows just in case the weather turns bad, seems the worse the weather, the Rainbows work better. These are also good for SEA TROUT in southern FL. Great all around lures.
Lure: Aglia BRITE
Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Steelhead - Trout, Brown - Salmon, Chinook (king)I have been fishing the Manitowoc River for over 15 years now but never have I caught so many fish than on the new Aglia BRITE #3 Orange-Gold. October 5th was the first huge day as I reeled in an 11 lb. steelhead, a 7 lb. brown trout, 2 coho salmon about 5 lbs. each, 2 chinook salmon each over 10 lbs., and 3 smallmouth bass over 18". I caught all these fish on the Aglia BRITE in a span of about 50 minutes in the same hole. My go to was always the #3 Aglia dressed, but, I may have a new favorite. Either way these lures are deadly.
Lure: Little Wolf
Fish Caught: SteelheadSimply the Best Spoon I have ever used bar none!
Lure: Flying C
Fish Caught: Salmon, Atlantic - Steelhead - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)Once again the people at Mepps outdo themselves. I bought a few of these lures when my local tackle shop first started stocking them and took them out fishing the next day for salmon and steelhead. What a lure! In the first hour I had caught more salmon and steelhead than most of the other anglers who had been out their all morning. I was also able to land a nearly 27 lb. Landlocked salmon. It was nearly a record breaker! Keep them comin' Mepps!
