Have been putting together an arsenal of trolling lures for my local kayak halibut fishing. Tackle direct has been one of my resources for this. Selection is good, and most of the items I purchased came to my door on the timeline expected.

For predators in the shallow tropical reefs, like barracudas, snappers and hogfish its irresistible.
Its floats and call predators in the area.

This thing is perfect for catching stripers from the rocks. We tried the Sand eel color and
the blue mackerel. Both caught fish.

This is my go to lure when I know big fish are around. SP Minnows have more than proven effectivity, and having that extra weight really helps covering a lot of area.
ProsSwim action like few other plugs

Most widely used striper and bluefish lure in the northeast. It is an absolute classic and must have in every tackle box. It's my favorite striper lure and a great surf lure.

What size is good for casting distance
1 Answer
Size depends on what you are fishing for and how you are fishing. The heavier and bigger the lure is the further it will cast. If you are looking for distance but are casting a smaller lure, distance depends on rod length mostly.

What is the best way to rig this bait? A coast-lock swivel or line knot on the split ring.
1 Answer
Some of us use a Tactical Angler's clip and some use a loop knot. Different strokes for different folks.

How do you pick a color? Are certain colors better then others?
1 Answer
It is better to try and "match the hatch". Go with colors that are similar to those of the bait in the area. In your area for example, there maybe Boston Mackerel or Pollack around. So I would go with colors similar to them. On the other hand white, black, and yellow are always good too.

What are the different uses between the floating and sinking? Fishing for Stripers?
1 Answer
The floating is for when bait is holding near the surface, The sinking is for when the bait is suspended in the water column.

What are the different applications for the floating verses the sinking? I'm fishing for Stripers. Thanks
1 Answer
The floating will stay on the surface, for when bait is on top. Sinking is for when bait is holding deeper in the water column.
