Fished the 3rd tournament of 5 for the Saltwater Bass Series yesterday in Long Beach. Fishing was good! We caught around 80 good sized bass, but just couldn't find the kicker bass. Ended up with 2nd place with a 21.52 lb limit. Al and I are staying consistent and sitting in 3rd place for the series. Rookie HUB team Frank and Richard struggled a bit, but pulled off 5th staying consistent riding 2nd in the series. The big story of the day tho is Ty & Luke Wiese. This father son team just started fishing 2 years ago and only use HUBs since they started. Now they are winning tournaments! Congrats guys! So rad to see you two killing it, taking 1st in the rookie division. Also want to thank all the people that are part of the HUB family that either fish the tournaments or just come out to show support. You guys are awesome and make us proud.

Went out pre-fishing for this Saturday's SBS tournament and to see if we could get another wsb. I kept track of my best 5 bass and they were over 25lbs. I have the big bass dialed. But now because of the weather the tournament is a spotted bay bass only Mission bay tournament. Oh well. Damn weather. Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Had 2 fantastic guys out fishing with me today. My bro Ben Secrest and the most awesome 73 year old I have ever had the privilege of fishing with, George. Tons of laughs and decent fishing. 1.5 and 3 oz Hookup Baits caught 'em all. All fish were safely released as always. Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
You're going to want to make sure that you have the Red Crab Hookup Baits in various sizes as a part of your arsenal. The red crab or pelagic tuna crabs are already starting to show and everything eats them! The Red Crab HUB is extremely effective when the fish are feeding on the live crabs. Just like what happened last spring with the white Seabass, the Red Crab HUB was the best chance at getting bit. This made the Red Crab HUB a very popular choice for anglers targeting WSB. If you want big Sheephead, there were 3 Sheepheads over 20 lbs that we know of caught on the red crab HUB just last year and many in the double digits. Not to mention the bass, rockfish and yellowtail love them too! We made the Red Crab HUB the exact color tones as the real thing and the natural gliding action of the baits mimics the glide of a red crab perfectly. Add some crustacean Mermaids Milk in to the bait and it's a sure thing. Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Out doing our thing on the saltwater bass. Consistent bite all day off Point Loma. Red crab are here and the red crab Hookup Baits get 'em better then anything you can use when they are around. The sardine and chovy hub's were also productive. Big swell but otherwise good day of fishing with good friends. #hookupbaits #mermaidsmilk #shimanofishing #keywestboats #saltwaterbass Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
So when the Robeson boys put fishing with Chad on their Christmas list you gotta make it happen! Despite the bad weather, we fished from sun up to sundown and had constant action the whole time. Nice job out there boys. #hookupbaits #mermaidsmilk Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Great way to start off the new year! Got out with Jojo and Frank. Was a bit windy and cold, but the fishing is always hot when using strictly Hookup Baits. There are tons of anchovies out there right now and the bass are going nuts on 'em. The bass fishing is as good now as it's been all year! Get out there and fish in 2019. Happy new years from all of us at Hookup Baits. 🎉🎣#hookupbaits #mermaidsmilk #shimanofishing #keywestboats Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Fished Point Loma for a few hours yesterday evening. Despite rough conditions we got some. There really is no off season here in SoCal. This is actually my favorite time of the year to target bass and to find new spots. You can never have enough spots. The lobster guys mark every hard bottom spot for you this time of year. Lobster and bass live in the same neighborhoods, so get out there and learn your electronics better and take a look at these spots. Then drop a Hookup Bait down to them and more then likely you will bring up a bass. #hookupbaits #mermaidsmilk #neverstoplearning Check out the original facebook post here and share from our page!
Hookup Baits as well as other private boats participated in the Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Broodstock Program Thursday and Friday this week. Our goal was to collect Halibut for their program. The goal was to catch 20 male halibut of legal size. The grand total from the two days was: Males - 4 Females - 5 Unknown - 5 - A gonad sample was unable to be attained from these fish, we will try again in a few months! Total - 14!! All the fish are doing well in the tank after handling. Thanks, Chris Arechaederra, for the awesome recap video (below)! Photos Enjoy a few select photos below.
