Hooked Up” tells the story of anglers chasing blue marlin—through the eyes of the marlin—at the Big Rock, a legendary fishing spot off the coast of Morehead City, NC. For Wesley, who is an avid fisherman, the song was a perfect fit.

“When I’m not busy touring, I enjoy being outdoors and spending time fishing with my family,” stated Wesley. “I’ve never actually landed a blue marlin at the Big Rock, but it is a long-time dream of mine. And when I do, you can bet I’ll be wearing Calcutta.”

An accompanying music video will be shot during a concert by Wesley on May 30 at the new Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament weigh station on the Morehead City, NC waterfront, as well as during the tournament from June 6–13.

“Partnering with James Wesley and ‘Hooked Up’ is a perfect fit for Calcutta,” said Dave Martin, Division President of Fishing/Camping/Marine at Big Rock Sports. “In addition to being the Major Sponsor of the Big Rock Blue Marlin Tournament, Calcutta is the premier brand for the coastal lifestyle.”
