Sportboat Nighttime Setups – Sportboat Roundup August 3, 2023

In last week’s Sportboat Roundup, Tonie went over the must have daytime setups to bring on the boat with you for the fishing we are seeing right now. This week, Tonie goes over her arsenal of nighttime rods, reels, and terminal tackle that she brings with her to capitalize on the extraordinary night bite that these bluefin oftentimes present us with. Have a watch and see how you should be setup on your next trip out offshore chasing tuna!


Tonie Bangos currently works aboard the Grande and is a seasoned angler who brings us weekly updates that include reports, tips, and the most current information about what’s working in the SoCal Sportboat fishery.⁠ Having worked on fishing boats ranging from San Diego all the way to Alaska, Tonie is well versed and skilled in the fishing scene. She has quickly established herself as one of the most prominent female anglers in Southern California, and anyone who has been lucky enough to fish with her will confirm that she’s an excellent fisherwoman. Every week we look forward to hearing from Tonie, and are very fortunate to have her as a Pro-Contributor.
