What is a good lure/bait configuration when trolling in the Gulf of Mexico fishing from a kayak?

I’ve been looking all over but can’t find guidance on it. I’d like a diagram, but if none are available, an explanation of what the rig/lure should look like would be great.

    First off you don’t fish from a Kayak if you snare or hook something big its gonna pull you where it wants to go and that’s recipe disaster

    Use any silver spoon about 3 inch,Crocodile Brand jigs work well or Japanese feather jigs.Just about anything silver and flashy.You can check with the local bait shops too.I would be very cautious about trolling from a Kayak though,you can hook into some large fish and I’ll guarantee you,you will get towed.Been there and done that! Always have a pair of cutters handy to cut the line in an emergency.Oh yea,no weight,like sinkers.not from a Kayak,your not moving fast enough.Good luck.
