    mepps spinners are good lil baits. The bite here is on rogues and crank baits.( wiggle warts)

    Don't leave home without your Mepps Black Fury Spinner. LOL Largest I've caught on one is 7 lbs - and in Oklahoma thats a decent bass.

    The Mepps Spinner does a great job. It works bet in warmer water ,72* plus. When the fish are active they will travel farther to hit that bait. Does not work as good in colder water.

    Have had good luck with medium to bigger size spinners for largemouth and smallmouth bass. But be ready, the northern pike seem to like them as well. You'll definately know the difference if they hit it.

    I usually keep it simple. #3 Mepps Agila bucktail, silver if the water is clear, gold if it isn't. If I'm not happy with the reaction of the fish, I'll try a #3 in firetiger or another hot color. If that doesn't work, it's time to try something different, or move. One thing to keep in mind is they twist line something terrible, so always use a ball-bearing swivel. Also, I sharpen the hooks before they ever go near the water.

    I have really good luck with the inline spinners, for largemouth, stripers, and whites!! I seem to have the best luck with anything with a dressed tail and a holographic finish.

    Buy some Skoll Wintergreen Chew and it might taste nasty but its worth trying .. Put alittle bit of chew in ur mouth and chew for a second and spit it out into a cup or something where u can dip the worm is the chew spit ..I have done this on sugar creek in indy and I caught a bunch of large mouth and rock bass .. Let me know how it works for you .. Good luck ..

    I've had good success with the aglia for slower shallower fishing, and the black fury for quicker deeper fishing

    black fury and red and white work very well. i think was mepps made a snagless spoon, tip it with a plastic worm and pull it through the weeds, it's great.
