Over the past year fishing many lakes in California, Utah, Nevada, Wyoming, and Oregon for trout, we noticed that the main forage fish for big native trout is the Chub. So, Chad went back to designing and testing a bait that matches these fish. The action of the patented design is always a winner for all fish in freshwater or saltwater, so the design of the bait remains the same. However, by testing different shades of color on a pearl body looking to match the look of small Chubs, Chad came up with one that proved repeatedly to be a winner in catching many big rainbows, cutthroat, and brown trout. It has been also very effective on freshwater bass, saltwater spotted bay bass, and halibut. July 15, 2021 Chub release will include the 1/32 thru 1/4 oz baits in scented and unscented. This color will be part of the standard product line available for retail partners and online store. The upcoming release of the 3/8 thru 1.5 oz baits is coming soon.
Get ready for another new release from Hookup Baits coming soon. We have been testing this bait for over the past year and it is another winner! We will release the bait in 1/32 - 1/4 oz sizes in scented and unscented baits. The later launch will include all of the sizes and this will be a bait that will be added to the standard product line. Get ready to see some posts and get ready to order as soon as it is released! You are going to want this new bait!!

We were very fortunate to have our Hookup Baits CFO make the top finalist of the San Diego Business Journal Top CFO of the Year! Not only is Jojo part-owner of Hookup Baits she is our CFO that wears many hats in the company. She is the one that believed in Chad when one night over dinner he told her in the early months of dating, "that he had an idea of how to make a bait that would change how people fish". When she asked if he had ever made such a bait his response was "no" but it was the confidence in his voice that she knew they had to try. Three months of being in design mode, Chad created the first Hookup Baits, and this fall we will celebrate our 6th year in business! As one of the finalists, Jojo shared what an honor it was to be among such amazing CFO's in San Diego as she proudly wore her Hookup Baits apparel during the final interview. Congratulations to Jojo for being named one of the CFO finalists!
