Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – August 24, 2023

Welcome back to another Sportboat Roundup! Hurricane Hilary seemed to be all talk, but she certainly provided us with some great fishing in the days prior to her arrival. As the dust settles, the fleet is getting back on the fish and seeing absolutely great sign both locally and in the further offshore zones. See what Tonie has to say about what’s been happening in the days since the storm and how you should get prepared for your next trip on the water.


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.
