Cape Verde Raptor - Flat
A deep running, top performing favorite that lives up to its reputation. The balanced LibraTech(TM)
insert allows it to run well from 6-12 knots in all conditions. As
the Cape Verde is capable of higher speeds, you can cover more water,
while presenting to more fish, and you can do it in almost any sea! The
Cape Verde Raptor is a classic big game torpedo pusher.

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 tail stock 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, hook set 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 blue water trolling lures features supple, vibrant, and durable skirts made in the USA by Ocean Lure Concepts. There are no finer skirts available.
