Default top three reasonably priced trolling lures

Looking to try my hand at trolling this year.Would like to catch wahoo,dolphin,marlin or anything else that will bite.My snapper spots are about twenty miles out.So would like to troll since snapper fishing last about ten min on my spots. Looking to fish out of Destin on 30 plus cc twin engine boat where should I begin not to far offshore at first since Ive only captained out about thirty miles so far and what are a few good lures I could use that are relatively idiot proof because I have been acused of being one sometimes Thanks

Blue and white or black and purple islanders. Braid runners for high speed trolling or the old Stretch family from Mann's.

Ditto above. Ilanders, Moldcrafts and a Orange and Black Yo-Zuri Bonito. Pull them around 7-8 knots and keep the fighting belt nearby. I'd keep the Yo-Zuri or other wahoo oriented plugs close, within 60ft or so in and under your propwash from your flatlines. The others can be pulled anywhere.

This. Exactly. This.

Would you pull the Islanders with weights or with the flat heads with no weights?

I sometimes pull one of the plugs on the flatlines with a weight but generally without on all unless high speed trolling

Hawaiian Eye with a ballyhoo, no weight.

My top three would be the Ilander with a ballyhoo, Mann's stretch lure, and a cedar plug with a bird in front of it.
