Captain Jeff – Chautauqua Lake, New York

Lure: Grab Bag Specials

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Musky - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker)

You can't beat the Mepps grab bag specials!! They always give you a great assortment of spinners and colors. I use these regularly with customers, The Aglia, Black Fury, Syclops, Musky Killer are just a few of my favorites. Love of the surprise of what's in the grab bag since they are always different. And I like trying spinners and colors I would not have normally chosen, then have them catch lots of fish. Thank you Shep/ The Mepps Man! -Capt Jeff

Jess Bridel – Kipawa Lake, Laniel, Quebec , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

New to fishing, my husband gave me a bunch of his lures to start off my tackle. One was a Mepps Aglia #3, rainbow trout with pink beads. He’d had it for over a decade and never used it (too pink). It quickly became my go-to. Out catching hubs. Shortly after catching 7 fish (bass, pickerel, pike) I caught a trophy sized bass!!! Sadly a huge pike, decided he liked it so much, he just had to have it.... I am desperately searching for a replacement- but believe it’s discontinued. I have friends all over Canada searching their local tackle shops for it.
That Mepps is amazing. Even my husband, who used to be allergic to pink lures, is sold on it and wants one too...

Bruce Purpura – Downeast Maine Lakes And Ponds, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Perch, White - Perch, Yellow - Pickerel - Pike, Northern - Trout, Lake - Walleye - Salmon, Quananiche (landlocked)

I discovered the Mepps dual blade aglia spinner last year and have not put it down since. This lure catches just about everything that my ponds and lakes have to offer. I had never caught salmon, pike, walleye, or trout until I started using this lure. The bass LOVE it. I troll alot and using this lure on 1 rod and a different lure on the other rod, I will catch 90% on the dual blade. Can't say enough about it. Thank you for producing quality products.

Silver Mepps No. 4 are the best, most consistent lure I’ve ever used. Over my lifetime the biggest, and the most fish I’ve ever caught were all on Mepps.

David Fairly – Tanks Central Texas, Texas

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Crappie (Black)

I was always a true believer in spoons and live bait. A good friend of mine ask me what I was fishing with and just as I said before. He was knocking the fish out at every cast. Well I guess he felt sorry for me. he gave me a #5 Mepps and the fish never stopped hitting that day and still to this day I am a true believer in this life and consider this to be the world's best lure.

Skipp Washington – Detroit River, Detroit, Michigan

Lure: Flying C

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth

This is a unique lure designed for Salmon but I've caught nothing but big Bass (Largemouth and Smallmouth). The one I have is an older FLYING-C, #4 Silver Blade, (Yellow) sleeve not the Chartreuse(Greenish), single hook, no trailer. Absolutely fantastic action and flash. Now I know why they're called FLYING-C's, they cast a country mile and can be fished at any depth by varying retrieve speed. Great for Walleye and Silver Bass too!

Kip Lohmiller – Lake Poygan, Wisconsin

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, White - Bowfin - Catfish, Blue - Crappie (Black) - Pike, Northern - Walleye - Catfish, Flathead

As a kid I grew up using Mepps, in WI and MN. The 21 years I was in the Army, I didn't fish at all. After retirement my wife told me, I needed a hobby, so I took up fishing again, after nearly 25 years. And went and bought a bunch of Mepps and other lures. I can't lie, I am a spinner loving fisherman. Over the last 3 years I have used Mepps almost exclusively. And mainly the Aglia dressed #5 and #3. I have caught tons of fish with them, from Large Mouth Bass, Northern Pike, Small Mouth, Walleye, Bowfin, Crappie, Catfish, and White Bass. I have been to Mepps in Antigo three times with friends to take the tour and get resupplied on my selection. Each time Bev and the crew have been awesome, and a big thanks to them.
Last year Mepps came out with the Aglia Bait series, and I ordered several different ones, but the Frog was my new go to spinner. I caught probably 6 northern over 32" and tons of bass, small and large mouth, I caught walleye, white bass and more. There are two really memorable days this last season that I would like to share. 1st, Troy and I went out in the morning on Lake Poygan and he was using the Dirty Shad and I was using the Frog, both from the Aglia Bait Series. Up until late afternoon I caught all Large Mouth and Troy caught all Northern Pike. Later that day things change up and we caught 8 White Bass in about 15 minutes and then I started to catch northern on my Frog and Troy, bass on his Dirty Shad. We caught 30 fish that day, it was crazy...... 2nd, My brother in law came up to visit and he has been fishing his whole life so its always a competition. The last day Troy, Jim and myself went out for a day of fishing. Jim "my brother in law" threw everything in his tackle box to include some crazy looking blue gill lure. Troy and I only used Mepps Bait Series. Troy and I caught a total of 20 fish, 10 apiece and Jim caught 4. A great way to end a week of fishing.......
On December 30, 2019 Troy and I went up to Mepps for a tour and to have some lures custom made. The tour was great and Troy and I put in our order. Troy got his lures the next day, WOW. I got mine on the 1st, WOW. The whole team up in Antigo was awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks a lot Mepps, you build the best lures and have the best customer service!!!!!!!! Troy and I are going to do some bass tourneys this year with only Mepps just for fun...... Have a great year!!!!!

Ben – Central Iowa, Iowa

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim)

The smallmouth can't leave this bait alone -- just caught my PR this evening! I tend to not like fishing treble hooks, so I was pleased to pick up the Black Fury Weedless Combo Killer, which features a single hook and a soft plastic keeper for Mr. Twister Curly Tail Grubs (3 grubs are included in the package). I was suspect of the bayonet-style keeper at first, but it seems to work fine, even in the faster currents of the rivers and creeks where I do most of my fishing. Hooksets are automatic, and fish stay pinned while doing their smallmouth acrobatics. I bought the #2 size in white/black and it casts well, but now I'm wishing I would have picked up the #3 size as well for when I need the extra casting distance. Great product, Mepps, and a good value -- would buy again!

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.

Siouxriver Phelps – Bonham Lake, Texas

Lure: Black Fury

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Catfish, Channel - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow

I usually don't catch that much fish, but when I use my Mepps I catch a lot of fish of different species! Best lures in the world no doubt!

Paul Donovan – Erie Canal, New York

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

Hi
I wanted to share this story. I live on the Erie canal. In an approximately 50 yard stretch in a single day. Over approximately a 2 hour window, I caught the 7 different species of fish that I marked above using the same #2 plain silver Aglia. I found that to be quite remarkable and wanted to share this and let you know what a great product you have.

Avery Woods – Pine Lake Waverly Ohio, Ohio

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bass, Striped - Bass, White

Best product I've ever used is the Comet Mino #3 Shad to catch large and small mouth bass!

Cole Rochon – Middle Range Pond, Poland, Maine

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Pickerel - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Rainbow

I fish 5-6 days a week on my lake from early spring to late fall. Mepps spinners have always been a go to when casting for bass. Today I pulled out a Mepps from my grandfather's tackle box (guessing 30 years old.) What followed was the single most amazing hour I've ever spent on the water. In one hour, I caught over 35 fish, and more amazingly, six different types! Large mouth, small mouth, chain link, brown trout, brook trout, and rainbow trout. I'm still in awe.

Joe – Pennsylvania

Lure: Double Blade Aglia

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Carp - Crappie (Black)

I just bought this lure a week ago, out fishing twice and have caught 4 different species. Great lure!

Steven Johnson – Creek, California

Lure: Trout Pocket Pac - #0 Aglia Wooly Worm

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Perch, Yellow

I scored three of these to fish a local creek. We were not catching anything until I tied one of these on. I made my first cast and reveled on how cool they look in the water. My second cast I scored a Large Mouth Bass! My friend decided to tie one on as I caught Bass #2 and #3. He also caught a Bass on his second cast. We slayed (followed by releasing) a dozen more Bass and Bluegills before the Sun went down. I will be buying lots more of these! The single hook is great! Hits were always hook ups!

Ethan Koski – Basswood Lake, BWCA, Minnesota

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bass, Rock - Bass, Smallmouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (Black) - Crappie (White) - Perch, Yellow - Pike, Northern - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Walleye

I've caught tons of fish on my Comet Mino, but the most excellent fish I caught was a 39in. northern pike. It was massive. It had a diameter of 15in. It took an hour to fillet it. And the same day I caught a huge 28in walleye. I'm for sure telling everyone I know about your guy's Comet Mino. I have never caught so many fish on one lure. I'm a 14 year old kid from Minnesota that doesn't have a job, but loves to go fishing and never, I mean never, had so much fun with one lure. I'm for sure going to save up some money to buy another one of these. I'll make sure everyone I know, knows about these.

At 64 I've fished extensively throughout the Upper midwest from Northern Lower Mi. to Northern Mn. and everywhere in between for over 50 years. I am never without multiple styles and sizes of Mepps spinners. They have been my "go-to" lure all my life and I've caught everything I fish for on them. They always produce when nothing else will and never disappoint. This new "Aglia BRITE is my new favorite style. It amazes me that I will catch fish with it when with buddies who are using something else get skunked. Keep supplying us with these!

Lure: XD

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

By far the best spinners I have ever used. I swear by them. I literally catch my limit every time I go fishing. I will never use anything else!!

Derrek CUmmings – Blanchard, Michigan

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

Mepps are ALWAYS my go to lure. The only reason I ever switch, is to keep things interesting! But almost all of my fish have been caught on Mepps spinners! Great lure for Pike anywhere from 2ft to 12 or even deeper! The fish smash the lure so hard they almost always set the hook themselves! Mepps are just overall great lures and you never know whats gonna be on the line when you throw one and hook into something!

Craig J. McCasland – Fern Lake, AuSable Forks, New York

Lure: Black Fury

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

Biggest Pike I have ever caught. The Black Fury is my go to lure when all else fails. I thoroughly enjoy all Mepps products!
40 in. 12.6 lbs. Northern Pike. Black Fury with orange accents. Caught in 2.5 feet of water.

Luca Poggione – St. Lawrence River, Rockport Ontario Thousand Islands, Ontario , Canada

Lure: Aglia & Dressed Aglia

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

Only my fifth time ever fishing, and first time I used the Mepps Aglia. Caught 3 Perch, 8 Bass and 1 Pike using the Mepps Original Aglia Gold #2. My favourite lure, great all around lure, will definitely use it all the time. Just went to pick up more of them at the store. Thanks Mepps.

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.

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 .

Jeff Mazzenga – Lake St.Clair, Michigan

Lure: Panfish Pocket Pac - #0 Aglia Dressed

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

Black Fury #3 Hot Firetiger with chartreuse dressing is my go to lure! Whenever I need to pick just one lure to have on me at all times that is it. No matter what time of day or night I have had great success. From Northerns and Musky to Bass and even perch.

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.

Glenn Miller – Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

Lure: Aglia Marabou

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

Mepps spinner baits have always been a consistent fish catcher. I regularly use the Comet to catch bass and crappie. This past Easter I used a number 5 Aglia dressed and hooked a 40" musky. You can't go wrong with Mepps spinners.
