Friends, family, customers, sponsors. The support for our business has been incredible and seems to be endless! We can’t thank everyone enough for the love and support that has gotten us to this point. We’ve come so far, but we’re not stopping anytime soon!

10 Reasons that made it a year to remember and be thankful for:

  1. Great friends and loyal customers!
  2. Great support from our preferred retail locations that carry Hookup Baits.
  3. Great support from our major sponsors: Anglers Chronicles, Owner Hooks, and Freedom Boats.
  4. Tournament Series and Champions for the Saltwater Bass Series. Thank you Al Vasguez for being the best tournament partner a guy could ask for!
  5. TV and radio appearances with Angler Chronicles.
  6. Shared success stories, YouTube videos, and photos of customers that have caught fish on Hookup Baits.
  7. Opportunity to give fishing seminars at Fred Hall Long Beach, San Diego Anglers, San Diego Rod and Reel and variety of other fishing clubs throughout Southern CA.
  8. Giving back! This year we contributed raffle prizes to a number of tournaments, made a donation to CCA for their support, auctioned a day of fishing with Chad for Fisher of Men Charity and the Nice Guys Charity and donated to the arts program at a local elementary school in Alpine. We also traveled to East Cape to participate in the Casting for Soul’s Charity event for our second year.
  9. Opportunity to wake up every day and follow our love and passion of fishing.
  10. Opportunity to build a company from the beginning with my best friend.
