I've always had good luck with the lures on this page:
Offshore Anglerô Blue Water Trolling Baits - Bullet Head | Bass Pro Shops

Specifically the Green Chartreuse and the Dolphin models.

Nothing beats rattle jets. We just dragged every color from north of Tampa to key west. Pink and green and dark blue/ blk worked best. Lots of bonita , lil tuny, mahi and way too many mackerel!
