Favorite Black Bart Lure

In honor of the passing of Captain Bart Miller, what is your favorite Black Bart Lure and for what species?

    Two or three of the four blues I've caught came on copies of the breakfast.  We were also pulling 2x extreme breakfast as teasers at the time too.  After that trip I added pelagic breakfast to my collection for local fishing.

    The only "game fish" I've personally caught locally on a BBL was a small dolphin on a 1656 mini flat in black over purple.

    I also have a special fondness for "Polamalu".   This is my BBL Bad Guy that is skirted black/gold over silver/gold/black fade.  This is not a standard Black Bart color.  I have to order the skirts from Melton's and carry them into the shop.  I think Jack thought I was crazy.  I married into a Steelers family, and I needed a tube for my collection -- this lure was a gift for my wife, who over the years treated some of Capt. Miller's dogs.  She remains very fond of her Black Bart t-shirt that Mrs. Miller gave her as a gift, and her Black Bart visor (which she wears when we fish).

    Sorry, I can't name just one.
