FAIRVIEW, Pa. [May 5, 2017] – FishUSA, a world leading online retailer of sport fishing tackle and related products, today announced it has acquired GLOutdoors.com, a Great Lakes-based online retailer of salmon and walleye fishing tackle and trolling gear.
GLOutdoors.com, established in 2003, offers name-brand fishing tackle specific to the Great Lakes walleye and salmon fisheries. Its inventory features brands currently carried by FishUSA, including Dreamweaver, A-Tom-Mik, Michigan Stinger and Silver Streak.
“We look forward to better serving our Great Lakes walleye and salmon anglers with a more extensive selection from these brands,” said FishUSA President, Dan Pastore.
