Mepps Xtra Deep Spinners
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...

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.
