We recently had the privilege to be a sponsor for a very rare and special Mother and Daughter fishing event in May! We couldn't be more proud to have been a supporter! Open Waters Foundation paid for twelve daughters, twelve mothers, and six female mentors (personal deckhands). Thanks so much for contributing to this unique opportunity for girls!! - Elsa Flores The foundation also paid for fishing licenses and fish cleaning! Wow. What a gift!? Thank you, Elsa, for letting us be a part of this special day.
Busy weekend! Friday night = SD Anglers Award Banquet. Congrats to Luke on Jr. Angler of the Year, Lori for Women's Angler of the Year and I got the Mens Angler of the Year! All 3 are HUB users and supporters. Saturday = Anglers Clothing spotty series tournament #3 @ Mission Bay. Took 4th place. Saturday night = Nice Guys charity dinner/auction. Sunday = Coronado Islands. Stayed away from the fleet because I hate fishing in the fleets. We got 1 yellowtail on the second cast and a few big bones. The the wind came up early, so we headed for shelter and picked at the bass and rockfish. Congrats to Frank on the nice halibut. All 4 of us only threw the new HUB Bullets the whole day.

Hookup Baits as well as other private boats participated in the Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Broodstock Program Thursday and Friday this week. Our goal was to collect Halibut for their program. The goal was to catch 20 male halibut of legal size. The grand total from the two days was: Males - 4 Females - 5 Unknown - 5 - A gonad sample was unable to be attained from these fish, we will try again in a few months! Total - 14!! All the fish are doing well in the tank after handling. Thanks, Chris Arechaederra, for the awesome recap video (below)! Photos Enjoy a few select photos below.
