Great Variety at the Coronado Islands

By | 2017-11-06T13:22:31+00:00 October 28th, 2017|News & Announcements|0 Comments

Always a great variety at Coronado Islands when throwing the Hookup Baits. Wayne Kotow of CCA and I caught calico, sand bass, Johnny bass, lingcod, whitefish, tree fish, rockfish and Bonita. Pretty much a fish for every cast all day. I've said it many times and I'll say it again, I love fishing on the ocean this time of year.    This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

Trip to Queen Charlotte Safaris

What a great trip to Queen Charlotte Safaris. A couple months ago. What a classy outfit. I just received these in the mail. My pins for getting a grand slam (halibut, lingcod, golden eye and king salmon) I did it in 1 day and all on Hookup Baits. Also my lingcod pin for catching a lingcod over 30lbs. Valery runs a very classy and clean lodge with great service and fishing. If you are wanting to go up north fishing I strongly recommend that you get ahold of Queen Charlotte Safaris. Thanks Valerie.

Cooling Off Out On the Ocean

By | 2017-10-30T14:57:21+00:00 October 25th, 2017|News & Announcements|0 Comments

Too hot in the shop today so Ben and I cut out early for a couple hour session. The ocean was flat, the air a whole lot cooler and the bass were on a rampage. It was every cast and I lost a couple giants.  This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

San Diego Anglers Bass Slam Tournament

By | 2017-10-30T15:08:31+00:00 October 22nd, 2017|News & Announcements|0 Comments

Fished San Diego Anglers Bass Slam Tournament yesterday with my girl Jojo, Tim Garner and his wife Tara. The tournament is you have to get a bass slam: 1 Calico, 1 Sand, and 1 Spottie and weigh in those 3 bass. So we hit deep structure spots for our Calicos and Sand Bass. Fishing was good and we all had quality bass on the boat by 10am. Then it was off to SD bay for our Spotties, giving us plenty of time for each of us to put a legal spotted bay bass on the boat. Turns out we only needed a half an hour. Jojo connected with a legal on the first cast, then I got one on my 3rd cast. Tim on his 5th cast then Tera a few minutes after that. Crazy! The first 4 fish in the bay were all legals. We fished the bay a few more hours catching more legal spotties, sand bass, Calicos, a Big Sculpin, and Short Halibut. At the weigh-ins Tara ended up with 6th, Jojo 5th, Tim 3rd and I took first place and the jackpot! Great day and tournament put on by a great club. Thanks SD Anglers. And yes the bass were released. Forgot to get Jojo's pic. Sorry honey! This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.
