Happy Halloween from Hookup Baits. LIFE IS GOOD!!! This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.
Always a great variety at Coronado Islands when throwing the Hookup Baits. Wayne Kotow of CCA and I caught calico, sand bass, Johnny bass, lingcod, whitefish, tree fish, rockfish and Bonita. Pretty much a fish for every cast all day. I've said it many times and I'll say it again, I love fishing on the ocean this time of year.

What a great trip to Queen Charlotte Safaris. A couple months ago. What a classy outfit. I just received these in the mail. My pins for getting a grand slam (halibut, lingcod, golden eye and king salmon) I did it in 1 day and all on Hookup Baits. Also my lingcod pin for catching a lingcod over 30lbs. Valery runs a very classy and clean lodge with great service and fishing. If you are wanting to go up north fishing I strongly recommend that you get ahold of Queen Charlotte Safaris. Thanks Valerie.

Too hot in the shop today so Ben and I cut out early for a couple hour session. The ocean was flat, the air a whole lot cooler and the bass were on a rampage. It was every cast and I lost a couple giants. This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

Fished San Diego Anglers Bass Slam Tournament yesterday with my girl Jojo, Tim Garner and his wife Tara. The tournament is you have to get a bass slam: 1 Calico, 1 Sand, and 1 Spottie and weigh in those 3 bass. So we hit deep structure spots for our Calicos and Sand Bass. Fishing was good and we all had quality bass on the boat by 10am. Then it was off to SD bay for our Spotties, giving us plenty of time for each of us to put a legal spotted bay bass on the boat. Turns out we only needed a half an hour. Jojo connected with a legal on the first cast, then I got one on my 3rd cast. Tim on his 5th cast then Tera a few minutes after that. Crazy! The first 4 fish in the bay were all legals. We fished the bay a few more hours catching more legal spotties, sand bass, Calicos, a Big Sculpin, and Short Halibut. At the weigh-ins Tara ended up with 6th, Jojo 5th, Tim 3rd and I took first place and the jackpot! Great day and tournament put on by a great club. Thanks SD Anglers. And yes the bass were released. Forgot to get Jojo's pic. Sorry honey! This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

What a fun day with a bunch of great people. We want to thank everyone that came out for our first of many all Hookup Baits school fishing Charter aboard the Sea Star out of Oceanside with Capt.Joe. These trips are by invite only for our great supporters and customers. There was a whole lot of learning going on. We broke the group up into four teams so each group had their own Hookup Baits instructor. Then we had various tournaments between the teams to see who had to wear the cat hat. We also did small seminars between stops. I believe everyone on board learned a few things and we caught fish and had tons of fun while doing it. The guys that got invited on this trip were the ones that let us know they would like to go when we posted our test run of this trip. So let us know if you would like to be on the next one and we will put you one the list. We absolutely love helping our supporters become better anglers. Thank you all for this opportunity to do so.

Fun day on the water with the crew yesterday. Fished local SD waters. Did bass in the morning then went and caught a lot of nice bonita and a few small yellowtail then finished the day off with more bass. Congrats to Hookup Baits rookie Daniel Bittner on 4 pb's . Calico, sand bass, bonita, and Cabazon. Tim had something monstrous on in the morning but broke off after a few minutes of fighting. Maybe next time brother. And as always the only tackle on the boat was Hookup Baits. This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.
