Walleye Testimonials

Dale Adams – Whitefish Lake Canada

Lure: Aglia Long

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I caught a 42" Northern Pike using a #4 Spinner (Glow in the dark lure). As a rule, I usually use the #3 Aglia Long and it catches all species in my area as well as a large variety of sizes. In my Opinion the Mepps #3 Aglia Long is the best all around fishing lure on the market.

Kevin McKenna – Lake Athabasca Canada, Saskatchewan , Canada

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye

In Canada with a Mepps #5 and a #5 double blade, I can control a bigger section of the water column. The Double blade is great for deeper weeds. Often, big fish feed at the edge of the weed bed on fish that are getting blown in by the wind. They are going to take the prime spot. Look for a channel that comes out, or a shallow finger that extends out a bit. With the #5 double blade and a Mister Twister tail, I can get down there and show just a little more than the plain #5. It has a little different feel, so it takes some getting used to. The double blade offers quite a bit less resistance to the water, which is what gets it down. As an added bonus, being deeper I was able to pick up Lake Trout and Walleye as well.

Eric Askerud – Lake Minnetonka, Minnesota, Minnesota

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Hands down my go-to lure catches everything from perch to muskie! Everytime I fish in a group it out fishes all other lures at least 2 to 1! Thanks Mepps!

DAVID FAUST – Gasport, New York

Lure: Magnum Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I was fishing at Wellers Bay Saturday 07/08/2017 for pike and walleye when I caught a 50 inch musky on a Mepps Comet #5 BRASS. It took probably 1/2 hour to get in his head only fit in my small net . I had to wear him out and finally had his head in the net and grabbed his tail also, to get him in the boat . I don't take my phone with me when I am up there (so I have no picture ) I was shaking with excitement for day's .

Bob Scriven – Great Sacandaga Lake, New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye - Catfish, Bullhead (brown, yellow & black)

I love my dressed aglia with a copper blade and black tail. I catch all kinds of fish with this thing. All of my friends don't believe me when I tell them I catch so many fish, until I take them out on my boat and show them. Once they see how many and how fast I catch them they all want to know how to get their own lure. So I tell them to get on the Mepps website and order their own. I have a lot of aglia lures with all different color blades and tails, but it seems the fish just can't resist the copper and black. Thanks Mepps for making fishing so much fun!!!

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Mepps Syclops hands down is the BEST Lure to use on Rainy Lake. It outperforms everything else and catches multiple species of fish. I've caught several trophy Northern over the years on this bait. I prefer size #3.

Matt Corliss – Upper And Lower Peninsulas, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bowfin - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Walleye

The Mepps #3 gold with the brown tail is by far my favorite lure in my tackle box. I will not head out fishing if I don't have one. I have caught all of the fish listed above on a gold #3 with a brown tail. I typically target Northern pike, but will frequently catch Bass, and other fish, unintentionally. The best pike I ever caught was around 40 inches, but I have caught countless others over the years. Whenever someone asks my advice on fishing, I recommend the Mepps #3 and tell them that is all they will ever need.

Robert Reeder – Any Where, Indiana

Best Lure ever

I have using them for over 40 years

Aidan Baumstark – Califon, New Jersey

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Pike, Northern - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

This is possibly the greatest fishing lure ever devised, it can be fished deep, shallow, fast or, slow. I caught my personal best bass, my personal best pike, and my personal best trout on this lure. I have never had a better lure than this, the next time that I see this lure I will buy 10. Thank you, Mepps!

Robbie Burns – Lake Fryer, Texas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Walleye - Barracuda

I bought the lure being a little skeptical seeing not very many reviews or product testing; even on YouTube there wasn't much. I bought the Black Fury in sizes 1,2 and 3. The number 2 & 3 are awesome! It's almost every other cast you'll get something on the Black Fury. The catch was almost 3lbs and I just recently caught an 8lb largemouth. It's an awesome lure and is a fish magnet. A must have for anybody who loves to throw a lure around.

Tyler – Valley, Nebraska

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye

My family and I head north to Ontario, Canada every year. The first few years we would take tackle box among tackle box with everything and the kitchen sink. The third year we stopped at a small tackle and bait shop in Red Lake, ON and picked up a couple of the Mepps Syclops. Figured we would give them a try. The clerk said they worked well. Have not looked back since. They work especially well for Pike, troll with them and you'll get plenty of walleye. I lean towards the Firetiger. Every year I bring one home that didn't get lost and it is just mutilated and scarred from catching so many. Great lures. For the price there is no reason to not have at least one. Thanks Mepps.

Ronald Jankowski – Allegany Ny, New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Crappie (Black) - Pike, Northern - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I remember I showed up to a spot my friend showed me and I really wasn't sure what kind of fish were in this pit. I just had a gold undressed Mepps number 2 size spinner on and I threw it in the corner of this pond. Next thing ya know I thought I had a big snag, but, sure enough I reeled in a 36" northern pike...

Noland Michels – St. Lawrence River, Wellsley Island, New York

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Whenever I go out fishing anywhere I always make sure I carry AT LEAST 2 Black Fury's dressed. My personal preference is Black/Chartreuse in a #5. I have caught countless Northerns on these (and I only retire them after the paint and stickers are mostly shredded off by teeth marks). I currently have 3 of them with all of the paint stripped off and another on the way. They produce bar none. I had a fishing competition just this past week. Fishing was real rough as only 4 Northerns were caught. 3 of them were by me with the Black Fury. I have never gone out with this lure and not caught a fish. I am amazed at the successfulness of this lure and highly recommend it to all of my friends and anyone else who is reading this! Mepps has my loyalty and money for life!

Josh White – Beaver Dam River, Lowell, Wisconsin

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, White - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Gold #00 Syclops was a killer bait. I found it on shore one day and never knew Mepps made spoons and since the white bass run was on, I was psyched to try it out. And, man did it catch the whites bad. I outfished all of my friends who were tossing small Daredevils and Twister. I caught some walleye and pike while I was at it, too, but as soon as I went to try a different bait, I didn't catch a single fish after. I guess they just love the erratic action of the Syclops.

Brian Kreutz – Madison, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I LOVE the Aglia spinners. My son and I use them as a "go to" lure for pretty much anything we fish for and ALWAYS have luck when we do. Thanks for making such an awesome product Mepps!!!!

Henry Rogge – Wisconsin River, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern - Walleye

Went up for opening weekend and couldn't catch a thing in the boat. Went down to the dam with my friend and sister, then, BOOM! We had three really nice pike, an eighteen inch smallie, and a walleye. THANKS MEPPS!!!

Larry Scott – Canadian Lake, Northwest Territories

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Walleye

Here's a wonderfully true testimonial of the #2 brown squirrel tail Mepps. In 1975, I met a fellow in law school. We became, and have remained, best friends for the past 40 years. A few years after we graduated from law school, we were able to afford a fly in fishing trip to Canada. I took every northern and walleye lure known to man, as well as a bucket full of nightcrawlers. The weather was perfect for our four day trip. Only problem was nothing was biting. We trolled for hours...and then days. I pulled out a #2 Squirrel Tail Mepps, a bait I'd often used for bass in Kansas farm ponds. I had no expectation that it would work on walleye or notheren in Canada, but, I was scraping the bottom of the barrel. The instant the #2 Mepps hit the water, all of mother nature expoded! One helluve big northern brought to net. Every cast, another big northern. I gladly offered one to my friend Steve. He met the same success as I. For 40 years now we've made our fly in trips to Canada...we've taken our sons when they got old enough, and now we're taking our grandsons. We always fish first with our #2 Mepps. It has become a legend for three generations of us.

Bob Hayett – Heritage Lake, Olathe, Kansas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I have found that Black Furies work amazingly well in two situations: In and around rocky shorelines and reeling them fast over spawning fish. I caught nearly a ten pound largemouth last year right next to a rocky shore.

Don Nelson – Coffee County Lake, Kansas

Lure: Bass Pocket Pac - #3 XD Dressed

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, White - Walleye

I have been trolling spinners and crankbaits for 30 years. I have tried every spinner on the market. For 2 years I fished the pro bass circuit in the 70s. I fish at least 2 days a week. When you are tolling there is absoleutly nothing that will catch as many fish as the Mepps XD spinners. You need to use a ball bearing swivel and 10lb braid line or 8lb monofilament line. Saturday my son and I went fishing and caught one 5lb Walleye, 3 crappie over 12" and 19 white bass on these Mepps XD spinners. We also caught 12 hybrids that were an average of 2 lbs. And, we threw back 6 crappies over 11" long. The Mepps XD is the most reliable bait you can use while casting or trolling.

Kevin McKenna – Lake Erie, Ohio

Lure: Trolling Rig

Fish Caught: Walleye

Fished Lake Erie the week of April 18-25 in and around the Bass Islands. The water was a little cold (44F)for crawler harnesses, still did really well on the Trolling Rig at slow speeds all through the water column. (10-45 feet back with one ounce)We did the best on blue, crayfish and firetiger colors with Colorado Blades. If you are using them with large fish, change the trailer hooks out to larger hooks.
I can hardly wait to use it this summer here in Wisconsin. The extra bulk of the lure proved itself on Lake Erie for big eyes.

Dustin Long – Great Miami, Kiser Lake, Ohio

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye - Catfish, Flathead

From 0 to number 5 these baits always work. Best baits in the world. My go-to bait every time I'm out. These lures will catch just about everything. Caught my 38-inch northern pike out of the Great Miami River. My mounted 29-inch northern. Catch smallmouth all day long with these. Double blades are also great. Silver blades with white bucktail. Also, the ones without a bucktail with the orange plastic piece works great. Great product, good prices. Wish I could fish for a living.

Jordan LeClere – Brushy Creek, Webster City, Iowa

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Pike, Northern - Walleye

I am a huge fan of the lime green(chartreuse dot) colored #3 Black Fury spinner. When I look back at all of the fish I have caught recently, 90% of them have been caught using the Black Fury. I love this lure! It is the only lure in my tackle box and I will go in after it I lose it on a snag (speaking from experience!!) I have even converted one of my non-believer friends into using them. I guess he finally got tired of watching me catch all the fish while he got skunked. Please, please, please NEVER STOP MAKING THIS LURE!!!! Thank you for such a great product and all of the joy it has given me in my fishing adventures!!

Sincerely,
Jordan

Joshua Murrow – Northeast, Kansas

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I can't say enouph about the Aglia. I have cought many diffrent kinds of fish with this spinner. The Aglia will catch anything. This spring I have already caught hundreds of bass and haven't used hardly anything else.
I have already caught three award-winning trout for the Mepps Awards. Monster trout that weighs up to and including the three pound class. Last weekend I caught the biggest crappie of my life. A one pound nine ounce white crappie out of a farm pond. I will have a pick up soon in the picture section on this site. I have used Mepps for over twenty years (about 1989) and love and respect anything Mepps puts out there. This spinner can run at almost any depth as long as you retrive it slow enouph to turn the blades and you can run it as low as five to eight feet. I use the 1/4 ounce #3 for bass and trout,#0 and #1 for crappie and other panfish, #5 for large bass and carp... anything really big. I have been a fan and always will be forever. Mepps is a part of my life and thats something I will never regret.

Joshua Murrow – North East Kansas, Kansas

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

To sum up this spinner anything that will feed on shad or minnows will hit a Mepps Comet Mino.

Joshua Murrow – North East Kansas, Kansas

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

I have fished the Syclops for so long I don't remember using any other spoon. The Syclops can be casted, jigged or trolled. It is deadly throgh the ice or casting for bass. The #00 is excelent for crappie and trout and the #1 and #2 is promising for bass, walleye and other larger fish. I dont think you can fish this spoon wrong, just put it in the water and pull them out. Silver, gold and the black-and-white are good colors. The colored spoons are good with single hooks with a Mister Twister Grub.

Joshua Murrow – North East Kansas, Kansas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

The Aglia might be my spinner during the day, but, when it comes to low light evenings or overcast days where there is little sunlight, I go to the Black Fury. Yellow and florescent red are my faves. Just throw it and reel it in. It catches anything. Thanks, Mepps, you are my number one lure.

Kim Gooden – Lake Plantagenet, Minnesota

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky - Pike, Northern - Walleye

In July of 2011 I was fishing (trolling) on Lake Plantagenet using a #4 Mepps Dressed Aglia Hot Firetiger with a brown tail when I caught a 41 inch Musky. You can only imagine how excited I was to catch the "fish of 10,000 casts" - especially since we weren't fishing for Muskies and none of us had ever caught one before! But the story doesn't end there. One year later, in July of 2012, I caught two more Muskies using the SAME LURE on the SAME LAKE in the SAME SPOT! What incredible luck - or what an incredible lure!! I love my Mepps!

Gary Gore – Rainy Lake, Ontario, Illinois

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Walleye

The Syclops lure year after year proves to be the TOP lure in my tackle box. I used to use only orange, but have recently found that experimenting with different colors has a huge reaction to fish strikes depending on the weather, water temp, etc. This past June in Canada, Northern were chasing the orange, but slamming the silver Syclops. It made for a wonderful trip and an addition to my wall with 38" Northern with a 16" Girth. Thank You Mepps!

Mark – Mississippi River, Black River, Lake Onalaska, Wisconsin

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

I'm completely In Love with this lure. I came across it a few years ago. And it quickly became my "lucky" lure. It's pretty much all I use. I try it right away everywhere I stop. And you can seem to use it anywhere. And you never know what might hit. I feel completely heartbroken every time I lose one. Most of the time it's been to gigantic fish that broke the line, or other faults of mine.

Jordan – All Over

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Musky - Pike, Northern - Trout, Rainbow - Walleye

This lure is amazing! I had one that lasted me 2 years of heavy use until it got snagged and the line broke. But, it paid its dues producing well over 100 fish, mostly pike, and now I'm ordering 5 more I'm so impressed, best lure ever! Its practically cheating.
