Trolling Lure Ascension Raptor (teaser)
The Ascension features an angled face and a long tapered body. They thrash, slash, and slice the wake and imitate a small bonito or mackeral. Although originally designed as a teaser, they can be very effective tournament trolled as a lure when targeting blues and blacks. The Raptor series’ speed and condition range is enhanced by the LibraTech(TM) LCM weighted insert. The head shake and plunge of the Ascension is unmistakable, and irresistable to those at the top of the pelagic food chain.
The Ascension Raptor is best suited to the short corner either tagged or off the rod tip depending on speed.

Santos Premium Skirted Trolling Lures
Santos offshore big game trolling lures are hand cast from premium urethane which does not require sanding after demolding, and therefore ensures that every lure is identical to the precision engineered prototype. Unlike most trolling lures which are made of polyester resins, urethane lures are optically clear, ultra hard, UV stable, and can be produced with perfect design proportions. Additionally, each lure is heat cured for the ultimate in durability.
We use only the finest AAA grade abalone shell veneers, soft PVC anti-chafe leader tubes, and custom made Santos Holographic eyes for our lures.
Each lure tailstock is precision CAD designed to perfectly fit our double hand tied skirts, and to make an ideal hydrodynamic transition. Tied skirts allow for easy replacement compared to glued skirts.
Each Santos trolling lure features our proprietary LibraTech(TM) LCM (Low Center of Mass) insert technology that insures that the lure stays upright, and is able to achieve significantly higher trolling speeds. With an upright lure, hookset position and orientation within the skirts are further maintained by our Santos RigLock(TM) system which is a standard feature of all of our big game lures.
Santos bluewater trolling lures features supple, vibrant, and durable skirts made in the USA by Ocean Lure Concepts. There are no finer skirts available.
