William Porciello – Plymouth, Connecticut

Lure: Timber Doodle

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

Well, my buddy had live minnows. I had the Mepps Timber Doodle 1/4 oz silver with the 4" white split Double Tail Grub. We're on a drop-off casting into the open weed pockets letting the Doodle fall on its own. He would pull up a bass on live bait and I would, too. We went catching doubles for a while then the Timber Doodle decided enough was enough and pulled ahead on the numbers of bass caught. They stopped hitting the live bait and the Doodle stayed working. I didn't want to ruin my buddy's fishing trip, but, he learned a lesson about using quality lures. I did nothing but add a shot of bass scent and let it dance down in the weed pockets. Now, asks me, you don't have a few Timber Doodles yet? You haven't ordered it yet?
It's weedless and a fish catcher. It's skill that catches fish, not luck. The Timber Doodles make me look good every time I use them. You have to try this.

Lure: Double Blade Musky Marabou

Fish Caught: Pike, Northern

Black spinnerbaits with large blades have been catching pike on the Connecticut River so far this Fall. After multiple trips throwing a black spinnerbait with willowleaf blades with no luck, I made the switch to a black Double Blade Musky Marabou this past Sunday morning. This was my first time using this lure. Not more than 30 minutes into throwing it, I was hooked up with and boated a 37" pike weighing 14lb. My biggest pike so far, by far.

The lure was super easy to burn over the top of dying weeds using a 7.0:1 baitcasting reel spooled with 30lb. braid on a 7'4" heavy bass rod.

The large gold blades put out lots of thump and are very visible in the stained river water. The black marabou puts out a nice outline for the fish to target as well. The lure ran true right out of the package and the blades spun effortlessly and never got themselves hung up on the trebles or the shaft. And after the tangle with this very nice northern, the lure still looks and operates like new. The marabou tail also has a great expanding and contracting action when bulged.

My Double Blade Musky Marabou is now my number one lure choice for pike in the CT River. Thank you Mepps!

Lure: Comet Mino

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

I have been sick for six months. Coming from the doctor, all I had was my trout tackle in the car. I put on a Mepps Comet Mino on my ultra lite trout rod and caught a 2 1/2# Largemouth Bass. After being sick and missing half the season, just catching one bass made my day.

John Cambis – Five Lakes , Connecticut

Lure: Little Wolf

Fish Caught: Bass, Largemouth

Bought two 1/8 oz Mepps Little Wolf spoons, because I am a big fan of spoon fishing and was getting ready for a good trout season. I took this to my local lake to try out. Yesterday, I caught a few bream, and one 11 inch bass, no big deal. Today, I took out a friend to give him a fishing experence, and, this little spoon earned its place in my box. I pulled 8 fish, only one small bream, and the rest bass. The big fish for the day was 2.7 lbs and was taken on the gold and red version of the Little Wolf.

Nicholas Cuzio – Stony Creek,Branford, Connecticut

Lure: Musky Killer

Fish Caught: Bass, Striped

While on a pier one evening plugging, trying everything in my tackle box(I always use Mepps spinners in freshwater with much success), I pulled out a #5 Musky spinner with dressed treble which I felt confident with. The third cast had a hard hit, fish tore off 20 yards of line, I fought the fish for 10 minutes, to my surprise when I saw it was a striper 33" long. Great night.

Big Bill – Longmeadow, Connecticut
