Mepps® Xtra Deep Spinners
Doesn't perform as good as other Mepps products
I have used many Mepps products over the years and generally have very good results. I have yet to catch anything with this particular lure though. It does run deeper relative to the retrieve speed but I have had trouble with the blade not spinning which is likely the reason for not catching anything on it. It is of the usual Mepps quality but I will stick to the old Mepps standard fish catchers such as the Aglia and Black Fury.

Mepps XD lures size O and 1 are real Trout attractors.
I use Gold/Dold and have caught my limit in an hour or two several times.
I strongly recommend these lures.

I use in-line spinners almost exclusively for trout! I use these,blue fox and panther martins! I find that the mepps extra deep spinner works well when casting to the bank, from the middle of a stream when wadding! They sink faster than and follow the bottom of the steam better panther martins and Blue fox. If I fish shallower water, I will use the blue fox spinner! If I need to go mid depth I use Panther martins. But if I need to go to the bottom of a pool or from the bank fast where the trout are, I use the mepps extra deep! In my area the brookies seem to like the the silver,gold and pink body,silver blade. Give these a try, they work well!
Tight lines and be safe!

Mepps Xtra deep spinner firetiger
This spinner performed excellent for small brookies. I tried few retrieve speeds, but the fastest speed worked the best. In 20 mins I caught two small brookies 4-6 inches.
This spinner didnt work for lake trout at least this summer.
