Sportboat Roundup with Tonie Bangos – February 17, 2023

NOTE: We want to point at that during the video, it was mentioned that 3 hooks may be used on a line when targeting rockfish. ONLY TWO (2) hooks may be used on a single line when targeting rockfish in southern California. For species such as the sand dab, more than two hooks may be used. Regulations vary per region, species, and season. We recommend to always stay up to date on regional restrictions. Head to to check out the regs in your region.

Welcome back to BD Outdoors Sportboat Roundup. This week Tonie delivers some news from around the San Diego fishing community. In addition, she covers some of the new regulations that are in effect within our Southern California fishery. Make sure to stay informed and adhere to all local regulations, as there have been many changes implemented this year. Tight lines!
