Testimonials from some who have learned the technique:

“I started using Mepps spinners with Dennis over 30 years ago. Since that time, I have only used Mepps. My tackle box is a small plastic box with spare #3 and #4 Mepps Aglia, plain, chrome spinners and split shots. The precision of the Mepps makes the retrieve much easier than any other bait.”  Randall Lovelace  (Lake Livingston for 35 years)

“My big brother, Dennis Christian, introduced our family to the Mepps Aglia #2 spinner about 30 years ago.  Prior to that, we had been catching most of the white bass on slabs and spoons.  But the Mepps spinners -- numbers 2, 3 and 4 -- along with the technique taught to us by Dennis, have yielded much success, no matter in which of the Texas lakes we are fishing.”  Dee Potcinske

“My experience using a Mepps Spinner began about 9 years ago when Dennis introduced me to the bait and his technique for using it to catch White Bass.  The technique ... has resulted in me catching many hundreds of fish more than I had previously caught using other baits and other also allows a person to catch almost every other species of fish such as Hybrid White Bass, Yellow Bass, Black Bass, Crappie, Catfish, Drum and an occasional Carp. ...recommend this bait and technique to anyone who likes to fish at any time of the day.” Ed DeLoach

“I learned this from Dennis 2 years ago and I now use it exclusively. I always caught sand bass before (slabs) BUT I have caught twice as many using this method. I am now making baits to be used in this system. I am convinced that it is the system more than the bait that gets the fish.“ Leroy Carroll

Closing Thoughts

Although I have read where the Mepps Aglia is well known for being effective for whites during spring spawns in the moving waters of creeks and rivers, using them for bottom fishing on structure out on the open water on lakes is apparently a truly unique technique. In my 30+ years of using the Mepps technique, I have only encountered one other person out on the lakes using it who, so far as I knew, was not someone my friends, family or I had taught. I asked him where he learned of the technique and he gave me the name of one of my work buddies whom I had taught a few years before.

Today, I am retired and enjoying outstanding fishing on Cedar Creek Lake. I derive a great deal of satisfaction teaching others - like my grandsons and neighbors - how to use the Mepps technique. It is such an effective and easy-to-use technique, I wanted to relate it to others who love to fish while I am still able - hence, this article. I hope you try it and join me in experiencing the pure joy of catching lots and lots of fish!
