Default Favorite skirted lures for bluewater fishing?

Recently we have gotten in some cool new bluewater lures here at Sam's in Orange Beach. In the past, Sam's has not been known very well for its bluewater lure selection, but we are working to change that. We just got in a good supply of Polu Kai Lures and Justin Roper's soon-to-be-famous Makaira Pulling Lures. In so doing, it occurred to me to take an informal poll of some of PFF's members' favorite bluewater lures, and maybe a little anecdote of why...maybe it will help us in our product selection here at the store. Oh, yeah...I was hoping to get opinions on lures only, as we all know the reverence with which the blue/white Ilander/ballyhoo combination is held.

My favorites include the Mold Craft Standard Wide Range in purple/silver/black (once got dumped on a 50W dragging one of these at the Double Nipple), Polu Kai Fat Boy 9 in Gay Bob (got one that's so chewed up it looks like you took a hack saw to it), Polu Kai's Shaka Plunger Jet 7 in purple/blue/silver (great shotgun lure.) I've got some others, but thought maybe you guys would like to share some of yours...

Yea, Bl/wh ilanders, but killed them last year with the same ilander with the mylar in it. My spread/ moldcraft wide range in the long riggers pink/wht, grn/yel, blk/or, ilanders on the short riggers, jet head-large feather on the shot gun, Braid Maurader blk/or on the flat,moldcraft senior super chugger blk/org on the other flat line. Bowling pin teaser of the transom Pink. Of course everything depends on weather seas and current.



But if I had my choice all the time I would pull natural baits on every rod. I grew up that way and still love it.

Ilanders, C&H Lures (hacksaw & stubby bubbler), Moldcraft (bobby brown, wide range, super chugger), Wahoo Whackers, mylures. All good lures. Mostly either blue/white, black purple, black/red, or even solid black or solid blue.

If I could only pull one lure offshore - that would be it. Deadly on wahoos, whites and rat blues.
