HUB Ambassador Highlight – Cash Troop

2019-08-28T11:01:28-07:00August 28th, 2019|HUB4Groms, News & Announcements, Newsletter|1 Comment

How He Got Started Cash was introduced to fishing at approximately age 5 when I took him to a local Carlsbad pond to catch some blue gill. I handed him my bass rod with a Texas rigged plastic worm on it and asked him to hold it while I baited up a live worm on a small hook for a blue gill. Before I could finish setting up his pole he yelled “I got one!”, and proceeded to reel in a large mouth bass. I knew at this point he had the touch or just some really good luck. We didn’t start fishing regularly until he was about 9 years old. I have always encouraged Cash to do what he loves to do. I have tried really hard not to shoe horn him into my interests or push him to do sports or activities that he didn’t want to. We had been on a bike riding tear for some time and we hit just about every skate park and bike track I knew of. One Saturday instead of taking off on another bike adventure I asked Cash if he could choose anything he wanted to do that day, what would it be? He said he wanted to go fishing. This lead us to yet another local blue gill spot where he proceeded to catch about 30 blue gill! He was so stoked on fishing that he continues to ask to go fishing. After catching countless blue gill he said he wanted [...]

August Grom of the Month – Recap

2019-08-22T12:53:44-07:00August 18th, 2019|Grom of the Month, News & Announcements, Newsletter|0 Comments

Good times fishin' with August Grom of the month, Wyatt, last Friday. Everyone was out chasing tuna and we had the whole coast to ourselves with great weather and great fishing. Lots of quality bass came aboard for this kid along with some other critters. The stoke was real. Congrats Wyatt on all your PB's. Wyatt said, "This was the best day of my life!" and that's what it's all about. Take a kid fishing. You won't regret it.

July Grom of the Month – Recap

Great time with July Grom of the Month, Cash and his pops Tom. The first time out to the Islands for these guys didn't disappoint. Tried for Yellows first thing. I jinxed us by hooking a big one on the first cast! Handed it to Cash, but it broke off after a few minutes. Caught some nice calicos, then took off to the rock pile when the fleet moved in on us. No Yellows at the rock pile, but we had good fishin' for nice Lings, Sheepshead, Calicos, Barracuda and Rockfish. We were having so much fun down there we didn't make it back up to the islands! Ha! We will get that Yellowtail next time, buddy. Thanks to the gear from Grom of the Month sponsors Fishworks Clothing, Angler Clothing Company, and Fishgroms.
