Hello WOW Volunteers, I just wanted to say thank you so much for your help on the WOW trip on Friday night! Unfortunately the fishing was off but all of you helped to make it a really fun trip for them.... and the burgers! Ha -Debbie If you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page. This was part of our Gives Back pledge.
It was our pleasure to present a check to the Coastal Conservation Association of California (CCA) last night for the money raised by our fun little superhero challenge. We had fun with it and raised money for a very worthy cause - to protect our fishing rights and fishery. Thank you CCA and Wayne Kotow for what you do for us anglers and thanks to my friends and fellow superheroes for helping us out. #hookupbaits #CCA #givingback This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

We are giving back to the community this week. As we continue to grow it is important to Hookup Baits to give back. Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of California Hookup Baits will be writing a check to the CCA for $500 to be delivered at the CCA San Diego this Saturday at their Craft Beer & Food Festival. As we completed the Super Hero challenge Hookup Baits donated the fees from the Super Heros and matched their contribution to give to CCA this weekend. We appreciate all of the support of Wayne and CCA. Learn more about the CCA Online or on Facebook Boulder Oaks Art Program The second check of $500 will be to Lisa Lomax FBO Boulder Oaks Art Program. Lisa has been teaching art at this program for many years. Children's art is important to Hookup Baits so the check is to help purchase supplies for the children art projects for the year. We look forward to attending the art show at the end of the school year. Thank Lisa for all you do for the children! Learn more about the Art Program.
Hookup Baits is excited to announce the winners of the 2017 Superhero Challenge. We're also thankful for our hard working friends of Hookup Baits not only paid to get into the challenge, but participated in it. A great time was had by all. Congratulations to: Biggest Fish = Sardine Snipper with a Halibut Biggest Bass = Glow Green Gringo Most Liked on Facebook = El Negro Most fish caught = Red Beard Red Crab There was not an overall winner since no one won more than one category. The best part of the contest is that we get to donate a nice sum of money to the Coastal Conservation Association (CCA) of California which is scheduled to take place on Saturday, 8/26/17 at the Craft Beer & Food Festival. This donation is one of many "Hookup Baits Gives Back" activities that we're participating in this year. Thank all of you for supporting Hookup Baits and all that we support!
Much better water conditions today but light rain most of the day. We absolutely killed them!!!. To many lingcod and rock cod to count. 2 nice halibut, then did the salmon thing for a few hours at the end of the day and got 12 nice ones. So what I accomplished today is what they call a 1 day grand slam. A halibut, lingcod, yelloweye, and Chinook salmon. And i did it all on the Hookup Baits! So stoked.

Little sunday morning skiff session on Mission Bay with my buddy Frank Santiago. Got a couple nice calicos, a handful of short halibut and a bunch of spotties. I even fished the double rig today and had multiple doubles. This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.

Our resident superfan Cameron Jonas went to New York and brought a video camera and some Hookup Baits. That's about all we need to say. Check out the full video here. This post was originally on Facebook, if you have good stories and pictures please share on our facebook page.
We are sooo stoked. We fished the final tournament of the Saltwater Bass series (sbs) today out of long Beach and where lucky enough to pull off a win. We almost pulled of a perfect inshore series getting 399 points out of 400 with 3 first place and 1 second. It's such a pleasure fishing against such great anglers and great guy's. Today the bite was a little tough. We boated around 40 bass but where able to peace together a good 5 bass limit of 23lbs. We fished 70 to 90 feet on structure spots with the big game Hookup Baits. Special thanks to Freedom Boat club Huntington Beach and San Diego for the great boats and the support that got us through this series and all of the other tournaments we fish. Highly recommend them if your looking for a easy and affordable way to fish our waters. Check out the Saltwater Bass Series page here.

What a great trip to Cedros island at Cedros Sport fishing. Great outfit and very good service. Fished with my girl JoJo and good buddies Sergio and William all 3 days. Tons of laughs and fish. The yellowtail fishing was on the slow side. We landed 10 total. 6 on Hookup Baits and a few lost, 1 on iron, 3 on Rapala. Everything else we cavght was 100% Hookup Baits. A few hundred bass, lots of sheephead, rockfish, whitefish, and a few other's. The topper of the trip was the black sea bass i caught and got to keep this time. There was 5 nice black sea bass caught by the group and all were on the 8 inch Hookup Baits.
