Z-man's opening night, pearl white, and purple demon if the water is murky or you're fishing pre-dawn or post-dusk

Chartreuse is also a good one, though admittedly I don't fish it too often from my kayak, had some good luck with it off many other boats before though. The "plain jane" color of the eliasv shads is also great. I've caught my biggest stripers on those, and now the opening night z-man, and the plain jane elias shad, are always in my spread when I'm trolling from the kayak.

As far as "real " swimbaits 

Pearl by far #1

2 along discontinued color pinfish 7"

3 chartreuse 

Those are storm

Bunker is another I've caught alot of fish on.

The original versions of storm swimbaits had crappy hooks, and I've lost some big fish bending them. But, they worked well. One of my largest bass was caught on a 7" in pinfish

Can't remember the brand but I have some pearl with silver flakes and a black gill spot.  Bought like 50 10 years ago.  Down to the last few.  Killer in spring.  

Opening night is a go to on the Chesapeake flats for me.
