About Hookup Baits:
“They just work!” What sets Hookup Baits apart from the others? These baits get bit on all varieties of presentation. Whether it’s on the sinking glide, jigging or just sitting still, fish will bite these baits. The retrieve back to the surface at a fast or slow speed gives the angler complete control while working the bait through the entire water column. The bait’s action, profile, “match the hatch” colors, realistic eyes, and lateral line, make this bait an effective and versatile bait in both freshwater and saltwater. These qualities make Hookup Baits one of the most effective and versatile products on the market. These baits can be casted and retrieved, vertically jigged and even trolled. Hookup Baits are also effective in fast moving waters such as the surf, rivers and streams and are especially deadly while using forward facing sonar. Hookup Baits are pre-scented with garlic and have a hollow chamber which is perfect to add additional scent. The baits are available in a variety of proven colors with sizes ranging from 1/32 oz to 6 oz. The design makes it easy to use for all ages and skill levels from the beginning novice to the elite tournament angler.

Hookup Baits are made with the highest quality materials and are proudly manufactured in the USA!
