Hookup Baits is Going International! Canada Here We Come!

Ask you you shall receive! Yes, it's true, Hookup Baits will now be shipping to Canada! We got so many requests for getting Hookup Baits over the border, so we decided to make it happen. Talk about supply and demand! This is an exciting new chapter for us, and the HUB family couldn't be more proud to be partnering up with our Canadian brothers. We cannot wait to get some feedback and photos from all the shipping trips in Canada for years to come!

GROM Highlight: Mason Noonan!

Mason, 9 years old, lives in San Diego but this week he is in Alaska going to try out the Hookup Baits while he is there. This is what Mason's Mom said about our Hookup Baits Grom: What does Mason love about Hookup Baits? He catches something every time and how easy they are to tie on and all the colors. He sleeps with them in his tackle box on his nightstand and watches TV with them next to him! We love Mason's passion for fishing and can't wait to see what he catches in Alaska. Thanks to Uncle Fred for being part of the team that makes these great baits and Aunt Lynn that makes sure Mason's tackle box is always full of Hookup Baits. We are proud you are all part of the HUB family!

Featured in Fish Sniffer – Slaying Reds with Hookup Baits

We love getting emails like this from grateful customers. Great catches, great photos, and great people! Thanks, Amy! Aloha Spirit Trip out at the Channel Islands "We didn't mark any Sea Bass...such a bummer. I did catch some Calicos and Barracuda on the Sea Bass Special Blue and that is a blast in the shallow water. They hammered that bait. I did land my first Yellowtail, so that was exciting. But he ate the live bait. Darn. However, I wrote an article for the Fish Sniffer and they picked it up for their digital issue and I put a mention of HUBs in there :). I wish your baits were the hero in the story with a big Sea time!" Flying Fish Shallow Water Trip "I was able to get out with one of my favorite boats in my neighborhood yesterday and we slayed the reds with your baits. [...]
