Different species of fish are attracted to different color trolling skirts in different regions of the world. In the Northeast, green, rainbow, blue & white, pink & white and purple & black are popular. Further south in the Carolinas and Northern Florida, green & chartreuse, orange & black and color combinations with white work very well. In South Florida and the Bahamas, pink and blue with white, green & chartreuse and red & black are the colors that “match the hatch”. On the gulf coast, pink & orange, green & chartreuse, blue & white and red & black are favorites.
Different species seem to be attracted to different colors. Wahoo tend to strike longer skirts in darker combinations such as black over rainbow, black & orange, purple & black and red & black. Dolphin go for lighter colors like green, green & chartreuse, and combinations of white with pink or blue. Sailfish and marlin seem to like longer skirts in combinations of greens, whites, pinks and blues. Tuna prefer shorter skirts with darker colors in the morning and late afternoons and brighter colors around the mid-day.
With the Voodoo Offshore interchangeable lure system, you more quickly respond to the fish’s preference than with traditional trolling lures. One thread size for all the heads and skirts gives you nearly unlimited combinations. Once you have the heads, you can inexpensively build a large selection of lures. Just 4 heads and a dozen skirts creates 48 different combinations so experiment with what works best in your waters.
The Voodoo Offshore 8″ trolling skirts are designed for our larger Big Kahuna and Jet Head lures. They can also be very effective with our Tuna Dolls, Big Mouth, Fat Boy and Nylatron heads. Made from vinyl holo glitters over reflective prism mylar in a variety of colors, these skirts are great for marlin, sailfish, big dolphin and wahoo.
Due to variations in materials, skirts may not look exactly as shown.
