H.C Baits - Home of the Hubs Chub


Welcome to H.C. Baits, the creators of the best kept secret in top water fishing.


The Hubs Chub, Vertical Prop Bait, created over 50 years ago, has rightfully won a devoted following among bass fisherman everywhere. Its vertical presentation attracts both Largemouth and Smallmouth Bass, as well as other species like Striper, Pike, and Musky. The "Explosive" surface attacks that you'll experience are matched by no other surface lure on the market today!

Because the Hubs Chub has created so many great memories for us, we feel it is our obligation to further ensure the future of this lure. We have made some innovative changes to this bait, starting with the painting applications. The process used in painting this lure will create a finish that at a minimum doubles the life from its original version.


We have also been able to increase the fisherman's landing capability by more that 40%! We have eliminated the hook hangers and replaced them with screw-eyes, thus increasing the radius on which the hook can flow, allowing for the increase of total fish netted.



Whether a seasoned tournament fisherman or the devoted weekend warrior, we here at H.C. Baits hope the Hubs Chub creates as many great experiences for you as it has for us!
