Last spring while fishing for Yellowtail we had a bite where anything larger than our 4" baits would not get touched. This also happens often with tuna when they are keyed in on small baits. So for this situation a heavier bait for further cast, faster sink, and a stronger hook to handle big Tuna and Yellowtail needed to be designed. This bait also needed to swim straight with a fast retrieve, and a small profile. With all of this in mind, we took these ideas back to the shop and designed what we now call the HUB Bullet! The Hookup Baits team put these baits to the test all last summer and they proved to be very effective on everything, especially on fish that chase such as pelagic fish. We had our best summer of Yellowtail fishing ever with limits just about every trip and 3 Yellowtail over 30 lbs...all caught on the HUB Bullet! Last spring we also experienced the White Sea Bass bite. The Sea Bass were keyed on Red Crab and the HUB Red Crab 5/8 was supreme. The only problem was catching big White Sea Bass on the smaller baits with smaller hooks. Now with the new HUB Bullet, that problem is solved! Same size bait, but stronger Owner Hooks. The HUB Bullet comes in 1 oz (3/0, 3 X Strong Owner Hook) and 1.5 oz. (5/0, 3X Strong Owner Hook) with proven colors of Mint, Sardine Green, Chovy, Purple Silver and Red Crab. [...]

Finally got the first Grom of the Month for 2019 out. We had to reschedule because of weather once and was able to get out between storms and the conditions were beautiful. The fish seemed to be in and off bite because of the weather, but we were still able to make a solid day out of it. Congrats Jack Hebdon for being chosen HUB grom of the month January. This kid slays. Jack also brought along his little bro, Lee and dad, Michael. It was a great pleasure fishing with all 3 of you. Jack was stoked on his PB sand bass, spotted bay bass, and rockfish today as well as the bag of swag from grom of the month sponsors Fishworks Clothing, Angler Clothing Company, Hoven Sunglasses, and Fishgroms.

Congrats to Mike, Justin, and Grant for being the February Groms of the Month! We're excited to take the three boys out on their first adventure with Hookup Baits! Let's go fishin'!! Now the Groms that were not chosen, your name stays in the bucket and if you post again this month you will be added to the bucket again. This means you will now have your name in the bucket 2 times and so on every month you don't get picked. We were so stoked to see so many more Groms in the bucket for this month. We love seeing all boys and girls out there fishing. Keep it up and good luck to all the Groms for the next month!!! Grom Sponsors
