Welcome to Erie Dearie

For 50 years the Erie Dearie name has been synonymous with Great Lakes Fishing. The success and longevity of the company is attributable to a revolutionary fishing lure called the “Erie Dearie Original” that was invented and patented by the founder of the company, Captain Dan Galbincea in 1961.Although the “Erie Dearie Original” has been for many decades one of the top selling lures in the United States (for Walleye, Bass, Northern Pike, Crappie, Sauger, Stripers and Musky), the company continued to diversify to other product lines. But in 2010 Erie Dearie was purchased by a larger recreational fishing company and over the past 18 months we have embarked on another major transformation that will continue both the historical journey and lead to additional high quality, technologically advanced fishing products. Today Erie Dearie is a vertically integrated producer of a full line of hardware, harnesses and rigs, sinkers, bobbers, frozen baits and soft plastics. It is the intent of the company to be the major recreational fishing supplier within the Great Lakes region. From our production and distribution facilities located in Warren, Ohio, we can ship all product lines with two day service throughout the continental United States and Canada, as well as world-wide. Erie Dearie is dedicated to creating and producing effective, high quality and innovative products to enhance your fishing experience and success.
