HUB Celebrates 6 Years in Business!

We want to say THANK YOU as we celebrate our 6th Anniversary! It is hard to believe that 6 years ago this October, Jojo asked Chad one night over dinner, what he would want to do if he could do anything in the world…his response was “to design a bait that would change how people fish”. Within days thereafter, Chad started designing, testing, and perfecting the baits that we know well called “Hookup Baits”. In reflecting, Chad has said that was an amazing time in his life to concentrate 100% on the design of the baits taking all the 30 years of knowledge to come up with the design. From a basement to a garage to outgrowing a warehouse in just a few years Hookup Baits has grown quickly, changed how people fish as they are easy to use and incredibly effective in catching fish from coast to coast. Our success has a lot to do with you, our customers as well. Thank you for taking a chance and trying these baits, thanks for all your support and sharing photos of what you catch. Thanks for all the questions and feedback over the years as we respond and listen to each of you. Designing a bait was the foundation and with that, we also wanted to create a business that gives back to the community-our wounded warriors, fishing clubs, and we established the highly successful GROM Program that encourages our young anglers as well as gets kids out fishing.

San Diego Angler’s Warriors on the Water 2021

Such a great trip. We love doing this every year! Thank you so much for all your help to make it possible to provide such an awesome day for our Warriors! You are so very special to us and the San Diego Anglers! - Debbie & Dwayne Photos Note from SD Angler's Foundation We would like to thank you again for helping us this year in getting our military out on the water fishing with our Warriors on the Water program. The trip to the Coronados last week was a huge success (again!) as we caught tons of fish for the guys and gals in perfect ocean conditions. It was mostly bass and a few yellowtails but they bit all day long. By noon, they would not take a handoff as they had all figured it out and were catching the fish on HookUp Baits on their own. We caught so many fish we were delayed putting the boat in the slip as we had to sit outside the marina to finish cleaning the fish and we had been cleaning all the way home. We had a special guest on the boat, Col Willard Buhl, USMC who is in charge of the wounded warrior program for the Marines. His list of accomplishments is as long as your leg but he seemed to be the proudest of his commanding role in the clearing of Fallujah in Iraq in 2003-2005. He is an absolute joy to be around and we [...]

Thanks, John! We were back side west at Catalina a little passed flat top I just took off my Red Crab and put on my 5/8 Mint with 25 mono.
