Lure: Spin Flies
Fish Caught: Trout, Brown - Trout, RainbowI was out on a day where the fishing report was bleak and I wasn't getting a bite or seeing a single fish rise. I crossed paths with a kind stranger who asked, "What are you using?" I showed him my fancy new "Trout Magnet crank bait" that was "guaranteed to reel em' in". He took a single hook Mepp's spin fly out of his stash and said, "Here, keep it. It's the only lure you will ever need." I walked downstream as the stranger left and caught a decent 10" brown trout on my second cast. A few minutes later I caught a fiesty little rainbow. Neither fish was huge, but the stranger saved me from getting skunked on a day where the fish were hiding out. I just ordered half a dozen more in a few patterns. Can't wait to get back out there!
Lure: Comet Mino
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pickerel"In my experience, the best and most versatile lure for fishing dark-water rivers and creeks in the South is the Mepps Comet Minnow. This little lure is deadly on largemouth bass, crappie, bream, warmouth, and pickerel, or what we call jackfish in the South. Truly an awesome lure. - Chuck Wechsler, editor, Sporting Classics magazine
Lure: Aglia Ultra Lites
Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthThe first cast I threw out I caught a monster bass, so I use it every time I bass fish now.
Fish Caught: Bass, LargemouthWhen I was fishing this afternoon. I had tried all of my regular lures and had only one small catch. I decided to try some of my new lures(these) and within five casts I had a nice bass on. I caught five bass total with these lures alone in two hours. Great lures
