 Welcome to H.C. Baits, the creators of the best kept secret in top water fishing and the home of the original Hubs Chub Rattalur.
 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 me, I feel it is my obligation to further ensure the future of this lure. There have been 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 than 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, I hope the Hubs Chub creates as many great experiences for you as it has for me!

    I purchased several Hubs Chub baits some 30 +years ago at a fishing and outdoors show in MA. I’ve been fishing with them ever since although I had forgotten the name. Recently, I introduced them to my son and during a fishing trip, lost one of my favorites to a chain pickerel (snapped the line). No t knowing the name of the lure, I had searched online but didn’t find anything comparable. I thought all was lost until I came upon a 4″ model I had purchased (still in the original box). Glad I kept that all those years and sure glad the baits are still being made. Ordering some news ones so I’ll have them on hand. They simply catch fish! My go to bait when fishing topwater.
