Fished the CCA Battle of the Bays kayak Tournament out of Channel Islands Harbor today. Jimmy and Wayne and the crew from CCA do such an amazing job putting these tournaments together. I was lucky enough to get the big fish award of $320 with a 26inch halibut and my good friend Frank got the big rockfish award. Get out there and fish these tournaments good times, good people and it will make you a better angler. #hookupbaits #cca #purewatersports #grundens #shimanofishing #mossynissanelcajon Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
So when Capt. Marciano of Wicked Tuna contacted me a few weeks ago and wanted to go fishing for anything but tuna for him and his wife it was our pleasure to take these 2 fun and wonderful people out. Dave is so humble and just a great guy all around and Nancy is a blast. They were both already HUB supporters they are even more now. #hookupbaits #wickedtuna #freedomboatclubsd #grundens #accuratereels #shimanofishing #mossynissanelcajon Follow/Share to Wicked Tuna on Facebook!

Gotta tell you the stoke was real with these groms Jacob and JoJo. First off I want to thank Fishworks Clothing for the hats and @Dinkskwad for the buffs for the groms. Very cool. First groms to get out to the Islands with me and it didn't disappoint. We landed 12 yellows, released half of them. No reason to keep a bunch of these little guy's. Insane log barracuda action only kept the ones that were bleeding. A few bonita and pb bass for all and a surprise 33 inch white seabass. I love doing these trips and seeing the joy on these kids faces while they are getting worked by a nice fish. #hookupbaits #gromofthemonth #fishworks #dinkskwad #shimanofishing #grundens #mossynissanelcajon #fishingsyndicaterods #freedomboatclubsd Check out the original post on Facebook or share from our Facebook page!
What an incredible weekend of fishing the Saltwater Bass Series (SBS) Championship Tournament in San Diego. Gerry Mahieu and his crew do an amazing job with this series. Thanks Gerry. This 2 day tournament was coastal for day 1 and bay/spotties only day 2. Then combine the weight of both days. There was 28 great teams that qualified to fish the tournament. We won day 1 and struggled finding big spotties on day 2 and finished somewhere mid pack. We ended up getting 2nd place buy .4 of an ounce. Missed going back to back Champs by .4 hurts a bit but all is good and much was learned this season. Big congrats to Hookup Baits rookie team that fished against the masters in this tournament and ended up in 3rd place. Awesome job Frank Santiago and Richard. Also big congrats to Jimmy and Brandon on the win. Way to go Champs. Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Saltwater Bass Series Championship day 1 went well. Team Hookup Baits had solid action all day on quality bass. We have a full pound lead going into day 2 which is Mission Bay Spotted bay bass only. Come down to Dana Landing around 3pm tomorrow for the final weigh ins. #hookupbaits Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
First tournament with the new Hookup Baits boat and we take the win. Got a great crew of Shawn Arnold, Vicky Sanchez, and Paul Butler for the Olive Crest Pro/am. Olive Crest is an organization that helps orphan and abused kids and we are so proud to be able to be part of it. The tournament raised nearly $300,000 for the organization.

Grom of the Month for June has been chosen! Jacob Lopez is this month's Grom. Lets go fishin' buddy. Congrats!! Now the Groms that were not chosen, your name stays in the bucket and if you post again this month you will be added to the bucket again. This means you will now have your name in the bucket 2 times and so on every month you don't get picked. We were so stoked to see so many more Groms in the bucket for this month. We love seeing all boys and girls out there fishing. Keep it up and good luck to all the Groms for the next month!!! #hookupbaits #gromofthemonth #gromstogrumpsclothing For more details about how to get Grom of the Month, check out the original Facebook post or share from our facebook page!
