my picks for here in the northeast:
inshore- hands down, gotta be the umbrella rig-that contraption has caught more tons of bass n blues by the charter fleet in montauk than most commercial boats!
offshore-green machine. personally caught more bigeye and billfish dragging this $10 p.o.s around than any $75 lure. no accounting for taste!

Given how different conditions require a different approach, I narrow it down to these three:
Moldcraft Wide range / cedar plug / green machine.

However, having seen how the terminator tackle and eye catcher lures work recently, I may be changing my mind in the very near future!

I guess it depends where you live and what you fish for, but a there isn't much inshore on the salt water side a white bucktail can't catch.

There was a very good reason they put a white upperman bucktail in teh survival pack for pilots in WW II. It's because there is nothing better
