Sea/Speckled Trout Testimonials

Anthony Boschi – Merritt Island, Florida, Florida

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

My Gold Syclops promptly arrived today and I caught numerous Seatrout. The lure casts perfectly and works really well.

Ray Feldwick – Tampa Bay, Florida

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Redfish - Trout, Sea/Speckled

The salt water Syclops is an amazing all species lure. The 8 gram and 12 gram lures in both gold and silver are my go to bait on the Tampa Bay flats. Throw along the mangroves to catch redfish and snook. Cast in 3 to 5 feet over grass and use a steady retrieve to catch speckled sea trout, blue fish, Spanish mackerel, jacks and more. Jig the small syclops to catch pompano and snappers.

My grandchildren love catching lady fish, a poor mans tarpon. At 12 to 16 inches, they hit hard and put up a leaping fight guaranteed to excite children and get them into fishing. You can fish a school of these fish and easily catch 50 per person.

Simon Duringer – Rawthey, United Kingdom United Kingdom

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

I've fished with MEPPS since 1989 and they have always proved to be the #1 go-to spinner for Trout, Sea-Trout and Salmon. Yesterday, I had 2 nice fish (very unusual for a single day on this local river); 2 x Sea Trout - both on a Gold MEPPS Size 3 Aglia. You guys simply ROCK :-)

Roscoe Solley – NY, PA, GA, FL, Fl Keys, EVERYWHERE, Pennsylvania

Lure: Minos

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.

Clive Webster – River Exe, Exeter, Devon, England United Kingdom

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Sea - Mackerel - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Trout, Sea/Speckled

In England these lures are dissappearing, no one stocks them and can't be bothered to get them, I see the Comets have dissappeared from the catalog as well, darn shame, best Salmon & Trout catchers going, if there's a fish in the pool,second if not first cast guanteed.
Bring back Silver-Blue dot and Silver-Red dot Comets in sizes 3,4 & 5!!!!

Roger Urquhart – Rocky Lake, Angevine Lake And Lake Charles, NS Ca, Nova Scotia , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Trout, Sea/Speckled

Hi, well as a complete Fishing Novice, (7 weeks as of this write up), I was having trouble catching anything so I did some homework on the local fish species to see what the lakes were stocked with.

I then put a search in to find out how to catch these fish and I kept finding links to 'The worlds best Lures, MEPPS', so I clicked on one which brought me here. Well I bought #1,2 and 3 Aglia trebles to experiment with and WOW !! Things changed overnight, these things really work, thank you MEPPS I'm having great results now!

The Snook Whisperer – All Over My Local Inshore Area In Clearwater, Florida

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Mackerel - Redfish - Trout, Sea/Speckled - Snook

I never even heard of Mepps until a friend of mine showed me his collection of Saltwater Syclops'. We took off one morning/afternoon and launched the boat at the local boat ramp down the street hitting a few of the bars/flats near the house and caught multiple keeper size Speckled Sea Trout! After about an hour of non-stop trout action, we decided to motor up to the backside of Clearwater to a popular night time snook hole of mine to see what we could find on the flat out back the hole and we were catching keeper spanny the intracoastal waterway!

Well after all that good fishing I decided I had to try the snook hole that night so we headed home ate some macks and caught a few Zzzz's before doing some nightime wading at the hole....sho nuff the snook were loving the Saltwater Syclops!

I will be a lifelong believer and customer now....THANKS Mepps!

Matthew G. Hauge – West Coast Of Norway, Swedish Lakes & Rivers Sweden

Lure: Thunder Bug

Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brown - Trout, Sea/Speckled

I have used the Thunder Bug spinner in several colors and sizes. The Blue Tail Fly/silver color is perfect for sea trout. If the fish are there, they take it. Also, the regular brown trout are glad to see one of these spinners. Either brown or yellow in March. I have caught 15-20 brown trout within a couple of hours fishing. A little trick to stop the spinner from twisting the line is to bend the eye 30-45 degrees. Be careful not to bend the shaft below the twisting, or you will end up with a spinner that doesn't work at all. Bending the eye down a little not only stop the lure from twisting the line, but also makes it go in the water in a S formation. The fly lies straight out behind the lure, the eye follows the line, and the body lies in a 30-45 degree angle. Some times the lure will even fish much better after performing this little trick. Some Dragon Fly nymphs have this position when swimming in the open water, or when they are ready to strike a pray.
The larger size of spinner triggers the Swedish pike to strike, as well as the European common Perch.

Dennis Lendrem – Fishers of Rothbury, England United Kingdom

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

Comfortably the most popular spinner in the UK. The simple silver, gold and copper account for some of the best fish taken in this country. Popularly used for fishing salmon and sea trout throughout the UK. These are a "must-have" on any serious fishng trip.

Dennis Lendrem – Fishers of Rothbury, England United Kingdom

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Trout, Sea/Speckled

The black and yellow has long been a favorite with UK fishers in pursuit of large wild brown trout. Increasingly though the Black Fury has been used as a sea trout and salmon lure. I strongly recommend the black and fluorescent red dot combination - it performs well in both low and high water conditions and is especially useful in highly coloured water. In the UK sizes 2 and 3 are most popular with the 4 reserved for faster waters. The 0 and 1 are used principally used as surface lures with the rod held high the lure is allowed to swing around in the current.
