Jack Musialowski – Big Muskellunge, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Pike, Northern

I have a #4 and #2 they are great! Northern go crazy for the #4. Bass like the #2. I caught some big bluegills on the number 2 as well.

Chuck – Sheboygan Falls- Sheboygan River, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia Bait Series

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Pike, Northern

Fishing the Sheboygan River using a #3 dressed crawfish pattern produced a day to remember. Over 200 smallmouth bass to 21" and northern pike to 31". All of this done while wade/walking a large stretch of the river. This combination is my new go-to bait to start the day with. It has consistently produced on both sunny and overcast days. Yet another great color pattern from MEPPS.

Joseph Schroeder – Private Pond, Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury Ultra Lites

Fish Caught: Trout, Rainbow

The #0 Black Fury with pink dots, is by far the best spinner for stocked trout I have ever used, one fish after another.

Caleb Taylor – Tomahawk, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky

The #5 Aglia is my favorite lure for Pike. I've caught countless Northern on these and my fair share of Largemouth and Smallmouth, but, my absolute best catch was the 45" Musky this lure helped me land.

Barbara Wallace – Wolf River Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Bucktails and Tandem Bucktails

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

2nd cast near weeds. 2 ft of water. Sunny morning. Caught 36" Northern. Caught 5 Northern for the week.

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.

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!!!!

Kevin Leslie – Geneva Lake, Lake Geneva Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth

Out breaking in new boat for first time with wife and son. Stopped and casted a Black Fury in 10 feet of water. First fish was a nice smallmouth that I released about 5 feet from the boat as it jumped and danced on the water!!!!!!!!! LOL. Boated two more and released. Wife caught several rock bass and son, well, he caught a cray fish and a small clam!!!!!!! He was using a Black Fury too. I guess they do catch anything!!!!!

Thanks 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!!!

Hoodo – Ghost Lake, Hayward, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Musky

I was using a #5 Mepps dressed Aglia. It was hot green with a bright green bucktail and a treble hook. I was on a one week fishing trip with Tushoes, who had already caught multiple muskellunges and walleyes, but I was get skunked by the big game. I tried my old reliable Mepps spinner and got two follow ups. I was unable to hook those monsters, though.
The trip was coming to a close and I had still not caught the big fish. Feeling desperate, I put on the lucky green Mepps #5 and threw a maximum of thirty casts, and then a fish was hooked! He jumped out of the water and threw the hook. In tears, I sloppily threw another cast, and an even bigger fish was on the line! We were able to bring him in take a picture and release him in good time.

Thank you, Mepps.


Jonathon – Delivan Lake, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Marabou

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, Northern

Never been a big fan of bucktails as they have never produced as well as some other baits. I had to try a Musky Marabou 'cause of how fluffy it looked in the package. I bought one to try and now I have basically every Musky Marabou Mepps makes. I like to troll over the weeds with the Marabou and have caught a ton of largemouth over 5lbs???? Who would have thought largemouth would attack the Musky Marabou, but, they do; and, there all monster bass no small guys with this lure. it also has caught me more northern than I can count, the largest being 45-inches, and we have only got a couple of smaller 35 or so inch musky, go figure the Musky Marabou has caught me some of my biggest bass and pike and only a couple of smaller musky. Once the big musky start to come a little shallow late in the season, I'm sure that will change! Thanks Mepps, but I think you need to re-name the Musky Marabou to the predator Marabou 'cause it catches all the predators.

Mason Wood – Bear Lake, Hazlehurst, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

I caught 27 Northern in one hour. All were above 25 inches. All were caught off a paddle boat. It was the best fishing in my life.

Ryan – Kewaskum, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Musky - Pike, Northern

It brings a tear to my eye every time I think about this lure. The white blade and white tail Musky Killer has produced more fish for me than any other lure. I caught a 49 inch muskie last summer with this lure and countless northern and smaller muskie. It is a feeding frenzy every time it is thrown in the water. You can run it as shallow as you want and even have the blade create a wake on the surface. Perfect for shallow casting over weeds for monster fish. If you throw this lure you will not be disappointed. Great job on the lure, Mepps.

Todd Jesse – Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

This lure is my "GO TO" lure. The best lure in my tackle box.

Henry – Gilmore Lake, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Musky

I was fishing with my father when I saw the musky. Well, I threw on a whole assortment of lures, but, only my Mepps spinners were coaxing it. So, finally I threw on a Black Fury and bam! 4-foot monster.

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Pike, Northern

I went out after work on October 24th to fish for Northern. I caught a few nice northern but to my surprise I caught more than 10 largemouth bass. The largest bass was 3lbs with several being over 2 lbs. The strikes were aggressive and I didn't miss a fish. I am impressed.

Henry – Lake Horse Head, WI, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

I'm ten years old I was fishing with mom,dad,and grandpa. We were fishing a lake called Horse Head. On our third stop I started getting small bites on my 6th cast there was an explosive hit I reeled the line up to the boat and there was a northern on my line. Mepps this is an awesome lure.

Henry – Lake Gilmore,WI, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

My dad took me fishing with my friend at Gilmore lake we went down below the dam. On my first cast I got a big hit. So I casted In the same place and bam a big fish on the end took me 2 minutes to get the fish in but the fight was really fun. It was a14in. largemouth. This is a great lure

Henry – Wisconsin River, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Me and my dad were fishing the Wisconsin River. When my dad saw a muskie, he tied a spinner on and tried to hook it by the tail to try to get it in, but, the Muskie had other ideas it turned and grabbed the spinner and went. Three minutes went by, but, the muskie spit it out and swam up river I tied on a Black Fury and casted up river where the Muskie went for, cast it struck it was on practically all the to the shore, when it spit out the lure straight at me I dodged. I'm glad I didn't lose the lure though.

Outdoorsman – Wisconsin

Lure: Spin Flies

Fish Caught: Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown

The Mepps Spin Fly is a great trout spinner. I caught the biggest fish probably ever in our little creek on these spinners.

Lee – Wisconsin, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

This lure is awesome. I was slaying bass with this. I caught a 15.5 incher and a 14 incher with around 10 minutes in between each other. It was the fluorescent orange with Black in a size 3 blade. These were the first two considerable fish I've ever caught on an artificial lure. I'm 13 and I beg my dad to take me fishing every weekend in the summer. Thanks, Mepps!

Ryan Vanne – Manitowoc River, Manitowoc, Wisconsin

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.

John Wagner – Phillips Chain Of Lakes, Phillips, Wisconsin

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Musky

I am 13 years old, and I was fishing with my uncle and dad in Wisconsin. For almost the whole trip, I was fishing the Mepps Black Fury Killer Combo number 4. I was catching a lot of small nothern pike. Then, I cast and hooked into a once in a life time musky. It was 46 inches long. I am glad that I was using the Black Fury and will be telling my friends about my catch and lure that made it happen. Awesome!

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.

Barry Klatt – Minocqua, Wisconsin

Lure: H210

Barry Klatt, Rollie and Helens Musky Shop Guide. I have been using the new H210's with my guide service the last two years, WOW what a difference they have made. Mepps really hit a homerun with this one. We are consistently having multiple fish days. Mepps thanks for this great lure!

Alex – Big Stone Lake, Dog Lake, Three Lakes, Wisconsin

Lure: Musky Killer

Ryan – South WI, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

A buddy and I went bass fishing every day for about a week and a half and only landed one 12 in largemouth bass. After using everything in the tackle box, I saw the old rusty Mepps. Since I used everything else, I figured I would give it a try. That night we caught 4 bass, and made a trip to Gander Mountain to buy some new shiny Mepps. The next morning we caught no less than TEN 14.5 inch FIVE 13 inch and TWO 17 inch along with about FOUR pike ranging from 22 in. to 24 inches. Wow, I think we found out what we were doing wrong... We weren't using Mepps. Now, we only use Mepps.
