I used this lure last weekend 4/21/2012. On my second cast I landed a 25" pickerel.

Good lure, not amazing though.
I bought one the 1/12oz silver blade version after hearing about it being amazing, and it does work very well on fish. But, I have a couple of problems with it. The first is that it is too pricey for me. I really don't go fishing with this lure often enough to justify paying that much for just one. If they were 2-packs, I would. The second problem i've had is with the blade not spinning well on the retrieve, sometimes it just hangs down, pulling the lure to the bottom. But it is very effective. I've caught bass, trout, bluegill, shellcracker, and redeye on it. It will definitely catch you fish, but I'm not a fan of the price.

Like a good friend
I've been using the #3 and #4 Mepps for 40 years now and have never been disappointed. It is true that the larger lure hooks the larger fish. Just realize that you may not catch as many.

Hi, I will be fishing for trout in southern Canada for a couple weeks this summer. I need a cheap setup that will allow me to fish in small rivers/streams and maybe lakes. I need a rod and reel setup that will let me cast a 1/16-1/8oz rooster tail type in-line spinner (like the Mepps Aglia) on 4lb(trilene? recomendations on line?). The rod and reel would have to be a combined $20-$30. Here are my choices from the freshwater ultra-lightweight/lightweight catagories on Basspro.com:
1. Bass Pro Shops® TinyLite™ Spinning Rod and Reel Combo
2. Shakespeare® Catch More Fish Rod and Reel Combo for Trout
3. Bass Pro Shops® MegaCast® Rod and Reel Spinning Combo - MC10FE/5'6" L
4. Shakespeare® Ugly Stik® Spinning Rod and Reel Combo Kit
5. Bass Pro Shop® Stampede® Spinning Rod and Reel Combos – Front Drag - 5'
Also should i get UL or L for those weight lures mentioned above?
Any coments, suggestiones, etc would be very welcome.
First, I have to highly recommend the ugly stik, its the ony rod ill buy, well worth your money. Extremely sensitive and strong, plus casts perfectly. Id go for L as i think that UL is just too small for me, and if you get a big one ( which isn't odd in Canada, i know, i live here ) you can be in trouble. As for line, id have to say 6 lb flurocarbon , as its harder to see than the mono, and stretches less. Plus you should spend a couple more bucks and get some ball bearing swivels, they'll save your line!
