Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – August 17, 2023

In this week’s Sportboat Roundup Tonie reports in from the Sportboat fleet over the last week of fishing. Bluefin fishing has been great and holding steady over the past few weeks, and the local fishing has been great some days and slow on others. There’s been some great opportunity recently at the local islands and we’re excited to see what potential opportunities this storm down south will bring.


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.
