At Imperium, we’ve combined classic design with cutting-edge manufacturing techniques, allowing us to offer some of the most unique and effective lures in the offshore fishing industry.
By taking advantage of the latest 3D modeling techniques and FDM/SLA printing tech, we are able to design and tweak designs on the fly. This results in a selection of finely-tuned, high tech lures, created with the modern angler in mind.
All of our design and manufacturing is done in the USA. The skirts we use are 100% made in the USA, and we source American-made raw materials whenever possible. We are a 1/3 veteran-owned company.
Imperium Outfitters is the first company to utilize modern technology and 3D printing innovation in offshore trolling lures.
At Imperium we have been very fortunate to work with a dynamite team of captains from all over the world. Their years of wisdom and experience has helped us create truly innovative lures that produce time and time again. Through extensive testing and feedback we are able to dial these lures in to truly make this the future of offshore fishing lures.
