What lures are you guys dragging???

I recently got into offshore kayak fishing and I am applying almost everything i did in my center consule days and so far so good. I have noticed some slight differences but the underlining factors are the same (jigging, live baiting). However, I am wondering what plugs you guys have had success on while paddling out and or paddling back in. I was thinking of a nice medium sized Yo-Zuri diver (i saw it in a photo of one of you guys) and or those teeny tiny black and purple skirt plugs that the BFT love so much.

Also, Any of you guy throw those top water chuggers while you're out there?

Any help would be appreciated!!!

    x-raps usually for me, or a frozen ballyhoo on a kingfish rig

    When the mackerel run is on, I usually troll a white or white & blue feather. Xrap is a staple lure as well, especially if you dont have bait.
    You could also drag a rigged ballyhoo under a small skirt, though I think we might not be moving fast enough to entice the same species as motorized trolling.

    As a generic thing I used to do fishing inlets. Small storm swim baits caught and released many grouper. They are soft and look like white bait.
