Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – March 15, 2023

Exciting news in this week’s Sportboat Roundup! As more and more boats are starting to run, we have been seeing a solid number of gamefish making their way onto the deck. Long range boats have been experiencing steady fishing on the lower banks, and local boats have kicked off their spring season in the search for yellowtail, halibut, and more. More schedules have been posted, and these boats need reservations to run, so make sure that if you want to be one of the first to catch this year, that you secure your spot on the boat. Good luck and tight lines, we’ll have another report for you next week.


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.
