We are very sad to say that a dear HUB family member passed away Wednesday night. This was a huge surprise to all of us here at Hookup Baits. Mario Martin started at Hookup Baits February 2018 and managed our packaging and inventory department. He had high standards of what each package should look like before it went out to our customers as well as took hours making sure our inventory count was correct.

We recently had each employee review themselves and here is what Mario wrote on his own review this month:

On a scale from 1 (being that you hate coming to work) to 10 (excited to come to work) how do you feel about coming to work each day? Mario responded: “10”

Given your daily responsibility please list what you feel you are best at and why? Mario responded: “detail oriented with numbers and inventory as well as the packaging department”.

We could not agree with Mario more that his attention to detail was very much noticed and appreciated.

We also wanted to share that often on Fridays the boys would gather to have a Q & A at the shop. One would ask a question and if the others did not get it right the person that asked the question got to keep the Hookup Baits. Mario always had the most interesting and fascinating questions to ask. The boys tried to answer them, but eventually we all stopped trying to answer and simply let Mario give the correct answer to teach us more about the subject. He was a wealth of knowledge and we will miss him every day around the shop.

Please take a moment today to remember this great man.

Thank you,
-Hookup Baits Family
