The Secret to Finding White Sea Bass Around Southern California

2020-02-26T10:08:56-08:00February 26th, 2020|Fishin' Reports, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

This article will be published by Fish Taco Chronicles in their Fred Hall Show Magazine Spring 2020, Volume 25 - Number 1 edition, Southern CA Favorite Fishing Magazine. A White Sea Bass (WSB) in California is on many angler’s bucket lists as it a favorite for its table fare and a challenge to catch. Over the past 3 years, a big majority of WSB were caught on California's coast on a Hookup Bait (HUB). From Ventura's Channel Islands, Santa Monica Bay, Catalina, Kelp lines from Newport to Oceanside, San Diego, Coronado Islands, and Ensenada. This data comes from social media, fishing reports, the many success stories we love and receive at Hookup Baits and from our own personal experiences from the HUB Crew. We would like to share this information to help anglers in trying to catch one of these elusive ghosts that we are blessed to have living on our coast. Where to Look? Let’s start with the Channel Islands and work our way down to Ensenada. Each area’s technique differs a little. But the main thing they all have in common is keeping the bait in the zone. WSB are usually suspended so keeping the bait in the middle water column is important. A lot of the WSB are caught while fishing calico and sand bass while the bait is sinking or being retrieved through the zone. If you are going just for WSB you’re going to want to make a long cast, let the bait sink halfway [...]

Thank You for a Great 2019!

2019-12-31T10:28:05-08:00December 31st, 2019|News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

As 2019 comes to a close we want to thank our customers, retail partners, HUB team and family for all of your support. We could not have had another successful year without you! This year included partnering with Dixiewrecked Fishing in taking vets out monthly for a day of fishing on the HUB Boat. What great gentleman we met, new friendships developed and most importantly our way to give back to these men that gave their time to protect us and this great country. Our HUB GROM Program doubled in size this year and what a great group of young anglers. Each GROM was so respectful, willingness to learn in becoming a better angler, generous with their gifts they received and many of our HUB GROMS participated in the Saltwater Bass Series Rookie Division and local tournaments which was great to see! These young anglers are the future of our fishing community and we are blessed to get to know each one of them. We want to especially thank our sponsors for the Vet and GROM trips that shared their products for these monthly trips: Angler Clothing Company, Fishworks, Fishgroms, and Greybeardwaterman. Hookup Baits 2nd Annual Tournament held at Mission Bay was successful with the increase of participation and so much support from all of our sponsors. Be sure to check out the video on the tournament page! This year we also introduced the Bullets, Replacement Bodies as well as a limited edition Sexy Sardine. We have lots planned in [...]

2019-12-31T10:35:06-08:00December 30th, 2019|Fishin' Reports, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

Last week we were featured in the Western Outdoor News on Hookup Baits catching (3) WSB on the 3 oz Mint! Two big WSB came aboard the Hookup Baits boat last week. The first one caught while having the monthly vet trip by Dixiewrecked Fishing and Hookup Baits. It was caught in 85' of water with a long cast and slow retrieve with the 3 oz Mint HUB. The WSB weighed in at 65 lbs on the certified scale at Dana Landing. The second WSB was caught the following day with a long cast but this time caught on the sink (Don't Blink On The Sink). It was a similar size also on the 3 oz. Mint HUB. Both were caught in San Diego waters! Video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0tpYZl8v7q8&t=1s
