Bait & Tackle for North-East Ohio

Thank you for checking out Drifters Fly & Bait Shop. We are excited about the journey that we have decided to set out upon: setting up and operating a retail sport fishing location for the Painesville area, as well as North-East Ohio.

We are located at 218 Main St. in downtown Painesville Ohio, less than a thousand feet from public access to the Grand River at Kiwanis Recreation Park. Stop in and say hi!

And please… continue to check in on this site as we grow and mature.¬†

Fishing Supplies for all

We have come to recognize the need for a good quality bait & tackle shop in the Painesville area, and while we love our Steelhead and Smallmouth, those are not the only supplies we’ll be offering. We will carry a full range of supplies for all fishermen. Visit the store often as we continually increase and improve our stock.


Sliver Bullets, Chromers, Steelies, Lake Runs… call them what you will, but here in North-East Ohio we LOVE our steelhead! Whether you’re a float guy or fly guy, we’ve got you covered. Come on in and gear up for your next adventure.

Catering to all

Whether you’re a seasoned vet or the newb just starting out, we’ll have you covered. Products to cover all budgets, ages, genders, and skill levels. We’ll hook you up with what you need.

Your friendly next door neighbor

We are doing this for YOU. If you want to deal with someone you can know and trust, this is your place. Honesty and integrity is what you’ll get. If we don’t have something in stock be sure to let us know, we will do our absolute best to get it in, AND offer it at an honest and fair price. Just think of us as a friendly next door neighbor wanting to work WITH you.
