We were so pumped that Round 1 of the Battle of the Bays event in Mission Bay went so smoothly! Not to mention that our our good friend and great Hookup Baits customer Norm Shoemaker won the tournament!!! 54 were registered and about 45 launched and fished the event, with 18 in the Big Fish side pot and only 4 in the Mity Might contest. All that paid and registered for the tourney will be in the Cedros drawing on July 14th. It was pretty darn foggy early as the guys launched. The wind really picked up as the day went on. The fishing and the Angler submissions were pretty slow in the morning, The photos submissions seemed to pick-up as the tide started to fill in later in the morning. The fishing on the outside was very slow for most of the anglers that made the long, windy and foggy peddle out there. Two kayaks flipped on the outside and needed boat support. I think they're going to shut down the outside fishing next year as this is the second year with guys having issues on the outside. They'll tweak the rules and maybe the date so more people have time for submissions and involvement since they'll be stuck inside the bay next year. Winners 1st - Our good friend, Norm Campbell, kicked some butt yesterday and won by 14.5 inches with a total bag of 47" to take first place and win a $500 gift card to Dana Landing. [...]

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.)

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!
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 are launching this color to our valued customers at the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach from trout to tuna sizes! Make sure to come out and be the first to experience this new product! Available ONLY at our Fred Hall Show booth March 7-11, 2018! ONLINE AVAILABILITY COMING SOON!
