About a year ago Hookup Baits had the opportunity to participate in collecting adult Halibut for a study with HUBBS SeaWorld Research Institute. On Thursday, 10/24/19, the HUB team as well as several other volunteers helped release 2,300 baby Halibut into Mission Bay! The study was a huge success! It was such an incredible learning experience and privilege to talk to the Scientist about the program, assist in releasing, and being a part of this amazing day on the water. We asked Tom and Cash Troop as well as Little Jax to join us so they too could be a part of this successful day. Get involved in volunteering for future events to support our San Diego fishing community. Learn more here: Hubbs SeaWorld Research Institute Photos Enjoy a few select photos below.

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.
