My pick for the best all-around lure would definitely be the Ilander. In my opinion, it is one of the most versatile lures out there: You can catch marlin, sailfish, mahimahi, wahoo, kingfish, tunas and more. The lure can also be fished with or without bait — it works well with strips or ballyhoo. My favorite way to pull an Ilander is to use it when high-speed trolling for wahoo without any bait and behind a heavy cigar weight. Whether you’re pulling it at
4 knots or 15 knots, the Ilander seems to do it all.
