Brands:Santos Tournament Grade Tackle
The Sea Stalker series lures feature angled faces and short, stubby plunger bodies. They have aggressive pop and shake and due to their (TM) LCM weighted insert, they are able to be trolled in considerable seas up to 12 knots. The disruptive movements and erupting smoke trail of the Sea Stalkers drive marlin loco. The Carolina Sea Stalker can be rig trolled for large blue and black marlin. It is also a highly effective teaser. Santos offshore big game trolling lures are hand cast from premium aerospace grade urethane which comes out of the mold identical to the precision engineered prototype, and as smooth as glass. Unlike most trolling lures which are made of polyester resins, urethane lures are optically clear, ultra hard, chip and crack resistant, UV stable, and can be produced with perfect design proportions. Each lure is also heat and pressure cured for the ultimate in durability. We use only the finest AAA grade shell veneers, soft PVC anti-chafe leader tubes, and custom hand painted Santos Holographic eyes for our lures. Santos lure tailstocks are precision CAD engineered to perfectly fit our double hand tied skirts, and to make an ideal hydrodynamic transition from the head to skirt. Santos trolling lures feature our proprietary (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 bluewater trolling lures features supple, vibrant, and durable skirts made in the USA by Ocean Lure Concepts.
I ordered a Santos Carolina Sea Stalker. Price was right at the moment and they make great lures. Received the lure today and the quality and the skirt are very good. However, we forewarned.... this model is a Huge lure. 17" doesn't see long, but I'd say the lure represents a small mahi sized fish about 3lbs.... bigger than most mahi and tuna in south Florida would want to mess with. I can't complain about the lure itself, and if I was strictly Marlin fishing its probably about right, but this is a lot larger most people would want to drag. For me, it will probably end up as a teaser off the corner, or when marlin fishing maybe on the short flat line behind the teaser.
Good for teaser
