Such an honor and privilege to fish against the best saltwater bass teams out there. Nothing makes you try harder and learn more than fishing against talent like this. That being said, actually winning is a huge blessing for us. The Saltwater Bass Series Championship 2-day tournament seems to be our event that we do well at. Winning by weight 3 years straight! Last year a dead fish penalty moved us to 2nd place by 4 tenths of an ounce. That one still hurts. We made sure to take great care of our fish this year. Fishing was good for us as we stuck to our plan both days and everything worked out. My tournament partner, Al, was there for his dad who had been struggling with cancer this whole season. Al never missed a tournament, but I can tell my long time fishing buddy wasn't at his best...understandably. Sadly his dad passed a couple weeks ago, so this one was for Al senior. RIP my friend. Al was back this weekend and we both put lots of quality fish on the boat with Al getting a 2.96 lb Spottie and one slightly smaller on Sunday. Way to go brother! On day one the 1.5 & 3 oz baits worked for us, catching Calico & Sand Bass. On day 2, Spotties only, the 1/4 oz. baits were the ticket. This shows how effective and versatile the Hookup Baits truly are. Thank you again to Gerry and crew of the SBS [...]
Thank you, Arnie Bazensky from Brea, CA - I've been a fisherman all of my life. It was my first use of a Hookup Bait! One of the younger guys on the boat saw the red crab color and said that will catch fish for sure and immediately when it hit the water, it was inhaled! It was quite an exciting day and I just placed an order for some more HUB's with the money I won in the jackpot. You just can't make this stuff up! 😊 Thanks a bunch!
We recently had the privilege to be a sponsor for a very rare and special Mother and Daughter fishing event in May! We couldn't be more proud to have been a supporter! Open Waters Foundation paid for twelve daughters, twelve mothers, and six female mentors (personal deckhands). Thanks so much for contributing to this unique opportunity for girls!! - Elsa Flores The foundation also paid for fishing licenses and fish cleaning! Wow. What a gift!? Thank you, Elsa, for letting us be a part of this special day.
