I have developed my own favorites over the years - Billy Baits turbo slammers and Halco Trembler plugs...I have other stuff that I paid big bucks for but which has never been touched....I'm wondering what other favorites/top producing lures are for the offshore fishermen on this board

Dittybo (184.108.40.206) from TEXAS says Offshore lures
With out a dought my top producing pick would be the larger spoon dog with or without teaser. Have caught a wider selection of fish both trolled and free sinking on this bait than any other.Kings, AJ,s, shark, dolphin, tuna all seem to hit this bait first when in a mixed spread. Sow snappr cant resist it when tipped with a whole croker or hardtail.

Artifishul (220.127.116.11) from ALABAMA says Offshore
For larger fish/baits I like the Yozuri bonito, for smaller I will almost always have a Bill Lewis Super Trap out. Have caught dolphin (dorado), king, reds (not exactly offshore, but it produces well) on them. Both with Luhr tape on the belly.
Have not tried Braid's Speedy yet, but I read good things about them and will try one in a few weeks.

Wide Open II (18.104.22.168) from GEORGIA says Stretch's are hard to beat
Like the stretch 30's, especially in the Loud color. Great on grouper in the gulf. Also caught kings and AJ's as well. Usually put out a couple of Moldcraft birds and virtually everything from dolphin to spanish hits them. Course, there are days when I could drag the entire tackle box behind the boat and nothing would bite. Then there are the days you get only rarely (and thank your lucky stars when it happens) when the fish are so hungry they would bite a piece of cinder block with a hook tied to it.

H2Outlaw (22.214.171.124) from TEXAS says Wayne Reynolds - - - Spoon Dogs
Hey Wayne. Spoon Dogs are made here in Texas, Beaumont I believe. Academy (sporting goods store) sells a ton of them. The spoons come in 1/2 oz. and 1 oz. offshore sizes, in gold or silver and with many different choices of colored accents. Very popular in Texas. They used to have a website but it's not there anymore. Let me know if you want more info.
