Recommended Posts

Cleaning out my garage and found this old Mepps spinnerbait. Its one of the first bass lures I owned. I'm going to put it back into action .

Wow! looks like a standard aglia blade. Pretty cool. interesting to see a swivel on the line tie, since Mepps have been advising for years (oddly, in my opinion) not to use swivels or snap-swivels with their in-lines.

I have the older mepps style spinnerbaits somewhere.

I have one of those... the smaller size with a single blade.  I have a couple of the old in-line baits they made, too.  One is pretty large with a distinctly "catfish-looking" rigged ribber minnow on it.  It was one of the "Giant Killer" baits they made for pike.

 

When I was a young spin fisherman growing up on Lake George in NY about forty years ago, the Mepps in-line spinners were one of my favorites (along with the Eppinger Daredevil spoons and the old Heddon hard baits).  I still have a ton of Mepps stuff in my ultralight tackle boxes.

 

Tight lines,

Bob
