If you could have ONLY one lure for beach snook...

... what would it be? Let's assume Gulf coast fish ranging from underslot to overslot. If you had to have one lure, what would it be?

    Red and white windcheater.  Can I sneak a red and white flairhawk jig in my back pocket?

    I love this aged old question "if you were on a deserted island and you had only one lure to catch fish and survive on what would it be?"

    It would not be a soft bait as that would not last long enough to feed yourself.

    It would have to be the timeless lure that catches everything....a Spoon, preferably a  3 oz Crocodile Spoon

    What if there are weeds/ grass in the water? Your desert island lure should probably be an “all conditions “ lure.

    I have caught a bunch of snook from the beach with only a mirrolure 52m. Unfortunately the colors ( brown and grey back ) I used to slay them on are no longer available but the black or green back would still work also.
