Chinook (king) Salmon Testimonials

Shane Dinsdale – Nottawasaga River Wasaga Beach Ontario, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

I caught a monster salmon on a #2 Hot orange Mepps Spinner on my 10th cast. Felt like I was snagged up on something and then nothing. Then it hit hard. This was the first time I tried spinners during the salmon run. Now I'm hooked on Mepps for good. Thanks.

I want to tell Mr. Sheldon what a big fan of Mepps lures I have been for the last 35 years. Mepps outfish most other brands. I bought a ton of Mepps spinners and spoons and caught a lifetime of trout and salmon! Mr. Sheldon, I hope your company grows and reaches the entire world in your quest to satisfy millions of fishermen with Mepps! You make the number one spinners in the entire world, undoubtedly no one can dispute that! I've been using Mepps ever since adolescence and your lures never let me down! I hope you keep making more successful lures in the future and grow your business a thousand fold. Don't forget Syclops! Simply better than Pixees, no other spoon comes close to producing fish than Syclops. I wanted to send you a personal letter by mail, but I'm so busy with work, I hope this email reaches you safely. I just want to commend you for making the best trout and salmon lures in the world. Been using Mepps for 35 years and I'm a very happy customer! Thank you so much and I wish you much continued success!

Steve – St. Marys River Power Dam, Sault Ste Marie, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

I purchased a Hot Orange/Chartreuse size #2 two days ago, Sept 3, 2012 and went fishing for salmon last night, around 8pm. On the Third Cast, I hooked a 16lb Chinook length was 31-32".

I tried many lures from Pixies to other Great Lures for 3 weeks, caught not a darn thing, then this lure on the Third Cast produced a fish, a wonderful fish.

I also puchased a few other syclops a Glow Blue/White and a Glow Pink/White and also a Blue/with silver sticker on it, i tried the blue/ silver sticker and caught nothing yet. I have yet to try the Glow models.

I was the only one out of 18 ppl fishing there last night to pull a fish and guess what no one had this lure color and wham bam thank you mame for me.
Keep up the good work Mepps

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.

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.

Joe M. – Salt Creek, Portage , Indiana

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

I was using a Mepps Aglia #3 hot orange. On my third cast, I caught a 9 1/2 lb 30 inch Chinook. I've been fishing since I was 5 years old. I'm 41 and have used Mepps my whole life. I LOVE THESES LURES.I don't know how many fish I've caught with Mepps lures but I have confidence every time I use them.

THANKS Mepps!

Lure: Flying C

Fish Caught: Salmon, Chinook (king)

The Flying C is one of the best salmon/steelhead catches more fish than any other for me. Lures that GLO or not, all the colers are a must have for your box,a guy could cast to Jupiter, hence, Flying C. ONE MORE CAST!

Christine Cunningham – Kenai Peninsula, Alaska

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Grayling - Pike, Northern - Salmon, Atlantic - Salmon, Coho (silver) - Salmon, Kokanee - Salmon, Pink - Trout, Dolly Varden - Trout, Lake - Trout, Rainbow - Salmon, Chinook (king)

In the annual Soldotna Trustworthy Ice Fishing Derby, which covers the lakes on Alaska's Kenai Peninsula, I caught a "Strait Flush" (char, kokanee, lake trout, rainbow and pike) using the #1 Mepps Syclops in Hot Orange. It also caught the largest grayling on the #1. In fact, it was the exact same lure! (I never lost it) I can't say enough about how great this lure is for ice fishing although I catch fish all summer on it as well.

Jeff Regan – Bainbridge Island, Washington

Lure: Syclops

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern - Salmon, Chinook (king)

This is one of the best lures I've ever used.

It was the single most effective lure we used on a pike fishing trip to Canada.

Here in the Puget Sound, it's the most productive spoon for catching salmon.
