Default What's your best lure??

As a local lure builder, I'm interested to see what kind of trolling lure you bluewater anglers go to every time you go out. If you happen to make your own lures, this is a good way for you to show off your work! Post a pic of your favorite lure. I will start...

I chose my Hustler lure! The bubble trail is off the chain!!!!! This lure has caught just about it all. The black/purple and the chrome head with black and rainbow skirt. KILLER!

Located in pensacola, we troll all of our custom lures. Its so hard to pick a favorite when you put so much time in every one, but i would say the favorite is the 2 tone halloween chugger because it caught the first blue marlin.

May not be my favorites as most of my stuff is scattered between a couple boats right now. Not pictured are a black/purple Wide Range and Super Chugger, (obviously), or a Marlin Magic Baby Ruckus in flying fish colors. The two Ilanders here are killers, purple and black Sea Searcher and dolphin pattern Sea Star. Top one is a Polu Kai Plunger, below the first Ilander is a Med Aloha Beauty, bottom is a Makaira Pulling Lures Auger. All these are great producers. The Sea Star has the distinction of catching a YFT, wahoo, dolphin and marlin all in one day.

All around? Sea Star with a select ballyhoo. All plastic? Moldcraft Super Chugger Sr in Black and purple.

Edit: I like different lures for different applications. Billfish, wahoo, tuna, dolphin......all get targeted with different stuff. You know well as I do, different lure types work better on certain species than others. Size, shape, etc. That's like writing a novel. No one real "best lure".

Roger that! I would agree 100%. That's why we all carry so many of those dang things to begin with! Hell I have two large bags full of lures that goes out with us every time.

I guess I should have started the thread with, what's your most productive all around go to lure? Either way really interesting to hear what others are using and proud to call their "go-to" lures

Not sure if you've had a chance to take a look at some of my Lures or not. The mold craft supper chugger is comparable to my hustler head that is pictured above. You might also check out my VooDoo head, it's similar to the aloha beauty.If your interested, PM me and I might be able to hook you up for giving them a shot!

Thanks for the replies!
