We are very sad to say that a dear HUB family member passed away Wednesday night. This was a huge surprise to all of us here at Hookup Baits. Mario Martin started at Hookup Baits February 2018 and managed our packaging and inventory department. He had high standards of what each package should look like before it went out to our customers as well as took hours making sure our inventory count was correct. We recently had each employee review themselves and here is what Mario wrote on his own review this month: On a scale from 1 (being that you hate coming to work) to 10 (excited to come to work) how do you feel about coming to work each day? Mario responded: "10" Given your daily responsibility please list what you feel you are best at and why? Mario responded: "detail oriented with numbers and inventory as well as the packaging department". We could not agree with Mario more that his attention to detail was very much noticed and appreciated. We also wanted to share that often on Fridays the boys would gather to have a Q & A at the shop.

This spotlight goes out to Frank Santiago, a tournament team and staff member! Congrats and thank you, Frank! Get to know Frank How did you hear about Hookup Baits? I first met Chad at the San Diego Rod and Reel Club (SDRRC) Monthly Meeting. He was selling Baits out of a Plano Tackle Box, so I asked him for his recommendation for SD Bay, Mission Bay and Santee Lakes. What was your first experience using Hookup Baits? After buying the baits at SDRRC on Thursday, I went on a bike ride around Mission Bay. On my first 5 casts I caught a short Halibut, a Calico Bass, a Spotted Bay Bass, a Sand Bass and another Spotted Bay Bass. Needless to say, I was in awe. Thinking it was not real, I went out the next weekend and I was fishing near a group of guys. They were out fishing the same area not catching anything, meanwhile watching me catch almost every other cast. Two of the five came over and asked what I was using. I gave each of them one and next thing you know all 3 of us were catching!! After that, the rest is history. How has Hookup Baits [...]
