Queen Charlotte Safaris highlighted Jojo and I fishin' with Sergio from Angler Chronicles and his wife, Rhonda, as we fished together on this adventure! This was Rhonda's first time fishing and she's hooked! 🙌 This is definitely the ideal couples trip if you ask us. https://youtu.be/tyN80JvC790
The day started at 4:00am at Dana Landing with the HUB team setting up for the tournament. A few boats were already lined up ready for tournament. Registration went smoothly, Captain/Anglers bags were given out, and fresh donuts and coffee for all. The tournament started at Safe Light and at 6:15am Anglers could begin to log in their catches. We used the iAngler app which allows an Angler to catch, measure, photograph and release their fish. It was important to Hookup Baits and CCA CAL that all bass were released. The results started flowing in as we all watched the leader board in each division. 11am the Casting Contest began. This was for our Groms (17 and younger) to see how well they could cast and for accuracy. We had (12) participants. In the Division 12 and younger, Tanner took 1st place with a total distance of 84.7 and 10 points for accuracy. Paul Vasguez from the Grom 13-17 Division took 1st place with a distance of 102 and 5 points for accuracy. Afterwards even adults and HUB team members tried their hand at this contest which was a lot of fun. Lunch was provided by Tarantino Sausage, so [...]
Congrats to Cash Troop for being the October's Grom of the Month! As you can see, his passion for fishing is what makes everything we do worth it! There's nothing better than getting notes from parents and grandparents, also excited for Cash! Priceless! "It’s company’s like Hook Up Baits that understand that the youth is the future of our country and provide the opportunities to set goals and work hard at something." - Tom Troop, Cash's Father "I have to share with you the pride and gratitude we are feeling right now. We are the Grandparents of Cash Troop who won the Grom of the Month, and came in third in this Tournament. To see his excitement and sense of accomplishment is priceless.

A message from Debbie Patenaude, Wow Chairman: I believe this was our very best WOW trip yet! After deliberating with Captain Taro, weighing the pros and cons, we chose to go to the Coronado Island in preference to offshore tuna fishing, hoping to make sure everyone got fish. So, early, 4:15 am, on Wednesday, September 26th, our SDA volunteers, Alisa, Bobby, Norm, Mike Kezele, Rudy, Dwayne, Debbie, Steve Carson all set with multiple Bonito rigs, and Chad, with plenty of Hookup Baits to go around, the others bearing rods to share showed up at Fisherman's Landing ready to welcome our warriors. We thought we would be there before our WOW anglers but we underestimated how excited they were! Many showed up very early! About 5:30 am, after all the paperwork was completed, Taro headed us toward the Islands. Calm seas and no one got sick. It seemed that in no time we had a quadruple hook up on Bonito, which happened nearly every time we moved the boat. The guys really had to work at getting the fish in with a moving boat! This gave them a chance to show off their muscles, amid cheers and laughter. We caught 27 different [...]

Loading the boxes full of beautiful baits for the Warriors On the Water charter tomorrow on the Liberty. This charter is put together by San Diego Anglers and it is my pleasure to be a part of it by supplying baits for the entire boat and helping these heroes get hooked up.
