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.
Imperium Outfitters S3 Beluga
Imperium Outfitters S3, S7 Super Smoker
The Beluga is Imperium’s flagship lure. This design drew inspiration from a desire to update the classic plunger shape. There is a 5-6 second cycle before it pops and dives again. Where it differs from a classic plunger starts at re-entry on the cycle. It enters the water at a much steeper angle than a classic plunger due to the large single jet on top face of the lure. When it dives, there is a phenomenal bubble trail from the single jet. When it pops out, both the face and and jet throw water like a bait fish jumping out. This lure can be fished in a variety of sea conditions from flat to rough waters.
S3 - Hooked bait. Great all around lure. We have had success with multiple species of marlin, tuna, and even makos. Long or short rigger, flat, or shotgun. Capt’s preference on position. Optimal speed 6-12kts. Hook size 8/0
Length 2.5"- Weight 6oz
Available in sizes S7 and S3. The cupped face and jets on this lure help give it one of the most jaw dropping bubble trails of any lure on the market.
