AND WE’RE OFF!!!! The Sportboat season has officially kicked off with several boats untying and leaving their slips to go on the hunt. Some are heading to our local islands in search of yellowtail, rockfish, and more while a couple are heading out on hunt mode for bluefin. It’ll be an exciting week to keep an eye on what’s going on. Remember if you’re waiting on reports to hit the water, you’re already too late so make sure to jump and fill those reservations so you can be the report and not listen to the report.

Tonie Bangos works aboard the Grande and is a seasoned angler who will be bringing us weekly updates that will include reports, tips, and the most current information about what’s working in the SoCal fishery.⁠

Remember the CARB final hearing is scheduled for the end of this month and they still need our help to make sure we come together to protect our Sportboat fleet. If you’d like to help out and get involved to save our fleet, visit the website to sign the petition
