Lure: Thunder Bug
Fish Caught: Trout, Brook - Trout, CutthroatFished the Thunder Bug lure for the 1st time in small waters in high country wilderness areas. It was a riot to sight fish brook trout and watch them chase this lure like a pack of puppy dogs until one would bull its way through and take it. Easily caught & released a few dozen over two days. On a second trip into Never Summer WA, Cutthroats slammed this lure and while the fish caught & released weren't high in numbers, the excitement was good. I can't wait to try this lure on larger warm water species!
Lure: Trophy Series
Fish Caught: Trout, RainbowI've been fishing for trout now since November of last year testing lures and colors every week and more. I have caught most of my browns and rainbows on Mepps inline spinners, dark green with a brass blade,and all chartreuse 1/6 to 1/4 weight also will bring up fish from the holes with a hard hit that always lands a fish. In my opinion they are the best spinners for Colorado rivers and streams, followed of coarse by Panther Marten spinners another great lure. I switch back and forth between the two and try different colors but ALWAYS go home during season with fresh fish.
Lure: Aglia Ultra Lites
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Grayling - Perch, Yellow - Sunfish (shellcracker) - Trout, Brook - Trout, Brown - Trout, Cutthroat - Trout, RainbowThese are great with a 4"9 ultral-lite rod and 2lb test line. I wish I could find them in more stores. WalMart always has a few... but never enough!
Lure: Black Fury
Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth - Bluegill (Bream, Brim) - Crappie (White) - Sunfish (shellcracker)Using the Black Fury in size 0 with a yellow tail, I was able to catch a mess of fish, big and little, in a matter of minutes in a private pond in Colorado. Truly, this is a great lure and shows Mepps quality through out. Way to go Mepps!
