Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – August 31, 2023

We’re back with another Sportboat Roundup! This week Tonie goes over the fishing that the fleet has been experiencing over the past week since Hurricane Hilary rolled through. Some would argue that the fishing we’ve seen since the storm has been some of the best of the year. Bluefin foam is aplenty and kelps are jugged with Dorado. Grab your gear and get on a boat, it’s a great time to go fishing.


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.
