My Number 1 Favorite Lure

I'm so impressed that I could order your custom 3 and 4 oz lures and have them arrive at my home the next day...Hookup Baits is my number 1 favorite lure and always produces great results.

Crushing the Hookup Baits!

Super fun morning fishin' with the homie Charlie. Fish were crushing the hookup baits all morning.

Sneaking in the Hookup Baits!

While some of us were fishing the island looking for quality models, Joe Wilson and Duane Dinnocente found some fine specimens near shore.
The story was they caught them on fly lined fined bait but who knows they could of been using Hookup Baits baits.
Keep a eye out for these guys.

Wrecked Local Freshwater Ghosts

Absolutely wrecked some local freshwater ghosts. We both limited out and keep pounding some more. Released over fifty with a hand full of largies to go with it. Fall fishing is fun!

People Tell Me I’m Cheating!

I took advantage of Hookup Baits 2yr special the other day. They got the package delivered the very next day. Props to Chad, Jojo, Ben, and crew for the amazing service, and even more important, delivering the fish killers. I typically do more damage with these Baits than the rest of the boat, so keep doing what you do! People tell me I’m cheating hahahahah.

Best Lure Ever!

Simply the best lure ever. No hassle of having to put a jig lead head hook in your swim bait anymore. Just tie...and fish!

They are incredible

These are the baits I told you about... They are incredible.

They Work AWESOME!!
Susan Stutz

My name is Susan Stutz and live in San Diego and there is nothing I'd rather do than fish! My dad told me about your product (he saw them at the Day at the Docks) so of course I wasted no time and trying out your product....so here's my experience using your baits; they work AWESOME!!! We killed it catching lots of Halibut and Spotties in the bay over the weekend.

Best Thing Since Live Bait

Best thing since live bait. Seeing the Hookbait crew on the water and on facebook is always a Joy. From the company it's self to the good times/fish the customers (including me) get it's been the only thing in my fishing journey that lived up to the hype. 10/5 stars

Best Bait Out There

Best bait out there. I can always plan to catch fish when I tie one on to my line

By Far, Best Baits Out There

By far the best baits out there. Got almost of my personal best fish on them. The bait works and great people. I recommend it to everyone.

Thank You for Supporting Our Troops

Chad, Jojo, and staff. Thank you for being such strong supporters of our SDAnglers Club and the many activities that makes this club so special. Most importantly, thank you for supporting our Active Military & Vets through our Warriors on the Water projects.

Action Was Incredible

Ran my brothers 28 foot Sea Dory to the reef off of San Gregorio in about 60 to 70 feet of water. I was with my old time fishing buddy Perry who has fished the Bay Area all his life. We used the 1.5 oz chovy Hook Up baits and hooked 8 lings along with other quality varieties of local rockfish. The action was incredible on Hookup Baits. Also, used the Shrimp Butter scent you sell and that seemed to work even better!

Sickest Bait Ever!

Sickest baits ever always catching! I feel like a spokesperson cuz I'm always talking about the hookups!!!

My Go To Bait

Hookup baits is now my go to bait! Love the action, and love the reaction from the fish. Just ordered online for the second time, and this is the second time I get them from them the very next day after they ship, which is awesome considering the estimated delivery is 3 days. Keep doing what you're doing!

I’m Sold in Huntington

1st time using your baits Saturday night Huntington Harbor WOW !!!!! I'm SOLD. 4 nice Spotties within 1/2 hour. 1/4 oz red crabs did the trick on 3 1/4 oz chovy on another.

Great New Bait in Arsenal
Michael Graves

Used the 1/4 and 3/8 oz white shad and chovie baits trolling and jigging/casting to catch these lake Mead stripers. They produced when the normal lures and bait wouldn't. Great new weapon in our arsenal!!

First Time and I’m SOLD!

1st time using your baits Saturday night Huntington Harbor WOW !!!!! I'm SOLD. 4 nice Spotties within 1/2 hour. 1/4 oz red crabs did the trick on 3 1/4 oz chovy on another.

Hookup Baits are Legit

I tell you what Hookup Baits are legit. I usually just drop mine and do zero action to it. It does all the work. Sometimes I just let it sit and it will get bit. I am buying a Shimano Saragosa spinning reel set up today based off of a recommendation from Chad. I have been using a bait caster but it does not peel line off like a spinning reel for the sink or present the natural retrieve that a spinning reel gives. Props to all of you at Hookup Baits!

They are Amazing!
Abel Salazar

I was lucky enough to cross path with you guys at Day At The Docks this year and even luckier to win a starter kit from you via the SDBB. I just finished trying out the baits and they are amazing! They are so effective and easy to use that even my 4-year old son was able to catch his first spottie on these lures. I want to thank you guys for an amazing product and your cooperation with the SDBB. (I hope to see your lures at SQUIDCO)

Hooking Them Up Before Hitting Bottom

Used your baits for the first time today. 15 out of 20 cast my line never even hit the bottom before I knew it I was hooked up into a nice calico every time. Thanks a lot hook-up baits!

Alright, I’m Sold

Alright Hookup Baits! I'm sold! I've been buying your stuff at LP Fishing Supply. Handed some out to the kids at the last Oceanside Anglers meeting and raffled some off on a 3/4 day family charter last Saturday. Well yesterday I went and fished the Carlsbad Lagoon with em and oh my! What a day! Got a couple small(10-12") Halibut, one 15 1/2", one 18" and finally my first legal out of there at 22 1/4"!!! Also a couple small spotties, one little sandie, and two baby White Sea bass!!! What an awesome day! I'll be going back to buy more and probably won't give them all away this time! Hahaha!!! Thanks for a great bait!!!!

Largest Calico

The largest of the Calico bass were caught on the "Hook-up" baits. In the Junior jackpot, (a large Calico) took first place on a Hook-up bait. I think this was about 5 lbs. A big thanks to Dwayne our Charter Master. He orchestrated a great charter last night. For our first trip of the year, we had over 50 folks that joined in. We had a little breeze and gave us a little rolling action that upset a few folks tummies.
