April Grom of the Month

By | 2018-04-19T17:38:27+00:00 April 10th, 2018|Grom of the Month, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

What a great day. I love getting these Groms out on the water catching and learning. Took Roy and his boys Jackson and Wylan out for April's Grom of the Month. We went outside first and got a couple rockfish and sand bass, but the swell was nasty, so we went back into the bay and had a great time. Reached my goal again by all of them catching their PB bass of each kind plus some other PB's. #hookupbaits #gromofthemonth #freedomboatclubsd Check out the original post on Facebook or share from our Facebook page!

Mint Color – Now Available Online!

By | 2018-03-30T12:29:28+00:00 March 30th, 2018|News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

As we announced a few weeks ago, the long awaited Mint color is now available to purchase online! Mint has always been a popular color in the ocean with plastic and metal lures. Many bait fish have blue tints to them so it is only natural to bring out a blueish mint color bait. We have tested different shades of the color over the past year and it has been very productive on all game fish. We launched this color to our valued customers at the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach and they love it! Now it's your turn to try out our newest bait color! Shop Mint Jigs Here!

March Grom of the Month

By | 2018-03-30T12:30:31+00:00 March 26th, 2018|Grom of the Month, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

Tough fishing around SD right now, but we were able to get on enough fish to make Luke, March's Grom of the Month, a happy boy. I believe both Luke and his Dad, Ty, learned a lot yesterday. Bummer that Luke lost a really nice Lingcod at color. Always a good time on the water with good people. Thanks again Ty for the Navy Challenge Coin! #hookupbaits #gromofthemonth #freedomboatclubsd #grundens #fishingsyndicaterods Check out more photos of this day here from the original Facebook post.

SBS SD Bay Spotted Bass Tournament

By | 2018-03-29T18:17:44+00:00 March 17th, 2018|Fishin' Reports, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

Al and I did ok at the SBS SD Bay Spotted Bay Bass Tournament today. We would have been 5th before our 1 dead fish penalty. Don't know where we ended up after that. We did catch over 20 legal spotties, just couldn't get that kicker fish we needed. The rain was no biggie with our Grundens Rain Gear keeping us dry and comfortable. Our new fishing Syndicate rods paired with the Shimano Stradic Reels were perfect setups for todays fishing. I also got 2 nice bonus halibut. #hookupbaits #freedomboatclubsd #grundens #fishingsyndicaterods #shimanofishing #saltwaterbassseries Check out the original post on Facebook or share from our Facebook page!

Introducing New Hookup Baits Scents

By | 2018-03-30T12:23:22+00:00 March 13th, 2018|News & Announcements, Newsletter, Shows & Events|0 Comments

Al Vasquez, Hookup Baits tournament partner, was frustrated with using scents that were hard to apply to the inside of a Hookup Baits jigs. So through the last year of tournaments he has been working on the scent consistency, scent strength, color and type of bottle that would be easy to use with the jigs. This scent really works and is designed for easy application. It can be used for all fish types and is offered in three scent flavors in a 2 oz. and 4 oz. bottle. Come by our booth at Fred Hall Show in Long Beach to pick up the scents! You don't want to miss having these when you're fishing the Hookup Baits jigs! Mermaids Milk Garlic Scent (2 oz. and 4 oz.) Mermaids Milk Fin Bait Scent (2 oz. and 4 oz.) Mermaids Milk Crustacean Blend Scent (2 oz. and 4 oz.) Available ONLY at our Fred Hall Show booth March 7-11, 2018! ONLINE AVAILABILITY COMING SOON! UPDATE (3/15/18) Hookup Baits Scents are now available online! Purchase Online Here!

Hookup Baits Custom Surf Board Raffle

By | 2018-03-05T14:51:48+00:00 February 28th, 2018|News & Announcements, Newsletter, Shows & Events|0 Comments

Who doesn't like a good raffle?! This year, be sure to stop by our booth at the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach to purchase a raffle ticket. You won't want to miss the opportunity to take home a Hookup Baits custom surfboard handmade by designer Josh Oldenburg! Tickets will be $5 a piece, so hurry before they're all gone! To learn more about different seminars and other sponsors/participants, check out the Fred Hall website here. Functionality is first and foremost a part of Josh’s design aspect. Josh builds boards start to finish and handshapes all of his boards. He likes to use organic design elements in the glassing of his shapes. His designs are unique because boards from the past largely inspire Josh. Being able to transform those inspirations into modern designs gives him a sense of freedom to incorporate new takes on old creations. The best way to keep designs and creativity fresh is through Josh’s forms of inspiration. His biggest advantage is that he builds nearly 100 percent of his boards based on custom referrals for specific customers. Tailoring the designs to fit their needs always keeps the building process new and energized. Come support Hookup Baits and get some more knowledge on fishin'! We hope to see you all there!
