Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – March 23, 2023

Understanding weather systems no matter where you fish can help you anticipate your day out on the water. This week, Tonie talks about the resources available to you when planning your next trip. As more and more boats are entering the start of the season, there are already signs of bluefin down south that could potentially get pushed up early this season. The opener for rockfish is April 1st here in California, and it comes along with a new list of regulations, size, and bag limits. Check out the video and hear about some potential trips you can hop on if you’re looking to get in on some early season action!
