So this year I'm going to try to do a little more trolling (or so I hope) in the Western Bahamas both out of West End and down south of Bimini. My trolling spread is a little outdated and I'm trying to put together a couple new lure spread combinations to compliment the rigged bally/ lure combinations I run off my long and short riggers riggers. I'm looking for a relatively large lure to run off the short corner line of my boat. Looking for something pretty aggressive in its action, and something most likely in the 12-18" range as it will be the largest lure in the spread and run off of a 50 class rod. We usually don't troll in bad/ rough weather so I would expect conditions to be in the light to moderate sea state (less than 3-5' seas). With that size lure, I'm looking for a lure that would be appealing to anything from moderate size dolphin up to the smaller blues we might encounter.
As a side, I'm hoping to get proficient at running a holographic strip teaser off that side of the boat, with the intent to have this lure running behind and chasing the strip teaser.
So whats your favorite short corner lure in your spread?
