Mepps Xtra Deep Spinners
Good for all trout
These baits are good for running close to the bottom, the blade is small which makes it easy to get it to spin when retrieving downstream. I like the black one #1 blade, I've caught 21" browns in creeks you could jump across with these lures. I also got my first trout "grand slam", brook, brown, rainbow all in one day last year. I dont think I will ever buy another spinner, thanks Mepps !!!!

I've been using these for about 4 or 5 years now and have always been very pleased. These specific in-lines seem to reach the depth sweet spot for creek/river smallmouth. For me, there has been no other lure that will more consistently catch fish. Other than wintertime this is my go-to.

The Mepps XD spinner is one of the best spinners I've ever used for trout. The yellow hair with gold blades works the best. Brown trout are especially fond of this presentation but the Brookies and Rainbows seem to find it hard to resist as well!!! I highly recommend this product...

Really Nice - Compares well to Panther Martin
Okay, let me preface this by saying that I'm a "Panther Martin" guy when it comes to inline spinners. Always have been, and may not ever change. That being said, these XDs are top quality. The components might even be nicer than the Panther Martins. I particularly like the all silver and all gold models. I think Panther's "colors" are a little bit better, but the solid silver or gold in the Mepps just seem to have more flash. They also seem to have a touch more weight which helps in casting some of the smaller versions. I used the #0 & #1 silver body / silver blade paired with Ultralite spinning tackle this year on opening day of trout season and they performed very well. Very satisfied.
