Fishing with Captain Marcelino Ceseña out of Baja California!

Thank you so much, Ira, for calling and sending us these pictures for our team to view. What a beast of a ling cod and a lot of nice reds! Thank you for supporting Hookup Baits, we appreciate you. I caught a mix of 14 Ling Cod & Rojos (Reds) including the large Ling in the photo (felt like I was pulling a locomotive off the bottomJ). The only bait I used all day was a new Hookup Baits’ 3oz “Black Gold” Custom Jig. Missed hooking another 4 and 3 others I hooked up spit the bait out before I got them to the surface. Purchasing more of your great product; I am a believer. - Ira Stokes

September Grom of the Month – Recap

Had a full boat for September Grom of the month. Jackson (Grom of the month), his Mom and Dad, and 2 buddies Tanner and Max on the boat for this one. Fished local structure and SD bay. We had a slow pick on the bass most of the day with some amazing catches thrown in. The best was the 35 lb (on the digital scale) yellowtail Jackson reeled in on a 1.5 Sardine Big Game HUB jig. Congrats bud, fish of a life time! 2nd was Tanner using a little setup with 4lb line on it and catching a 7+ lb sand bass (weighed) with a 5/8 Mint HUB. All 3 of these boys are very respectful, polite and have a passion for fishing. Prime examples of Grom of the month. We had a very enjoyable time spending the day fishing with these boys. Best compliment a man can get: [...]
