Good kit

I purchased this kit from Dick's Sporting Goods many moons ago, and I still have 3/5 lures in my arsenal. I've caught LMB, SMB, Walleye and Pickeral on these lures. Inline spinners are fishing catching machines.

Review of the mepps basser kit

I have been using Mepps spinners for a long time. In fact there is a good chance that it was the first artificial lure I ever used. My dad always had confidence in spinners especially Mepps. They are well made spinners only using the best components in their assembly. Most of the parts are imported from France but are assembled by hand in Antigo, Wisconsin.

When you talk inline spinner's trout or musky come to mind, but it shouldn't be that way. The Mepps Basser Kit is a collection of six proven Bass spinners.

1. #3 Black Fury: This is a good lure used in low light, either morning or evening and in stained water. This is a very productive bass spinner when fished on the outer edges of weed beds and fallen timber.

2. #2 Aglia long: The Aglia long uses a will leaf blade. Is suited best for those bass that are suspended at a deeper depth.

3. #3 Aglia and #2 Aglia: The Aglia #2 & #3 are the staple lure for Mepps. This is an all around spinner. When nothing else works these are good spinners to fall back on.

5. #3 XD Gold and #3 XD Silver: The XD Gold & Silver. XD (Extra Deep) was designed to do exactly what the name implies run extra deep and has a specially designed spinner blade that will turn at the slowest speeds.

According to Mepps their spinners are not designed to imitate anything. Spinners are made to entice fish into hitting. They draw on the basic survival instinct of fish to attack anything that invades it's space. I don't know how true this is, but spinners do catch fish. Mepps makes a whole line of kits especially made for what ever you are after from walleye to pan fish to musky. No matter what brand of spinners you chose, spinner fishing is a good way to learning how to fish artificial lures.
