Default BEST OFFSHORE LURE???

I'm looking for some ideas from you super experienced guys out there on your personal favorite offshore trolling lure. If you had to choose a lure what would you look for that stood out the most. Would it have to have mirrors in it like the aloha lures or abalone shell like Bart or Coggins. Would it have a slant or scoop head. Also heavier or lighter lures and lengths as well.

The reason I ask, I have made about 50 lures with differnet shapes, sizes, weights, abalone, jetted,mirror,eyes,colors, all the above it seems. I'm considering starting a small business making offshore trolling lures and would ask your help for ideas. I'm by no means trying to steal the glory of some of the bigger companies ideas but I am trying to make these lures more affordable to the average fisherman that doesn't have 2,000.00 bucks just to spend on their offshore lure collection. Especially since its relatively easy to loose the things by that wahoo that cut you off or that DAMN crimp that didn't hold just right.:banghead

Right now I have about 20 of the lures that i've made at Gulf Breeze Tackle. Victor Wright and the guys there have been great to deal with and took some from me to put on consignment considering it wasn't season for them. I have plans to meet with other tackle shops and marinas but want a little more variety to show them.

Once again any info you would like to share would be great. Ideally, i want to make these the way you guys want them in this area. Share what you like and who knows it could be named after you if it becomes a hit.

I'm willpost pics of some that have had a few thumbs up later.

Thanks again,

Bryan

Hands down my favorite lure is the Polakai Jet in blue yellow and white. It has caught billfish, and dorado in the atlantic and tuna and dorado in the pacific and sea of cortez. In three days in Venezuala it raised over 30 billfish, needless to say they wanted to keep the lure.

+1 on the old Schneider lures especially the blue head with blue and white skirt. Islander lures with medium ballyhoo, and a blast from the past in honor of Steve Kaiser the Knucklehead.

A lot of crap works well but ifI have to pick.....

Aloha Small Beauty in purple/Black

Polu Kai fat boy in black/green/yellow (jamaican flag)

AND OF COURSE!.....................a blue and white Ilander or Express. Don't act like you're too good for them!

I believe in mirrors and silhouettes more than abalone and different colored eyes. There's no doubt they catch more fishermen though.
