Congrats to Wyatt for being the August's Grom of the Month! We're excited to take Wyatt out on his first adventure with Hookup Baits! Let's go fishin'!! 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!!! Grom Sponsors

Great time with July Grom of the Month, Cash and his pops Tom. The first time out to the Islands for these guys didn't disappoint. Tried for Yellows first thing. I jinxed us by hooking a big one on the first cast! Handed it to Cash, but it broke off after a few minutes. Caught some nice calicos, then took off to the rock pile when the fleet moved in on us. No Yellows at the rock pile, but we had good fishin' for nice Lings, Sheepshead, Calicos, Barracuda and Rockfish. We were having so much fun down there we didn't make it back up to the islands! Ha! We will get that Yellowtail next time, buddy. Thanks to the gear from Grom of the Month sponsors Fishworks Clothing, Angler Clothing Company, and Fishgroms.
