Fishing for Bass and Yellowtail in Southern California

Join Pew's Steve Marx and expert angler Paul Hoofe as they fish for calico bass and yellowtail in beautiful Catalina Island in Southern California.

Marx and Hoofe are joined by charter boat captain Bill Gorham, outdoor radio host Phil Friedman, and Pew representative Sean Watson on this live bait fishing adventure where they learn about the importance of forage fish to a healthy marine ecosystem. Forage fish like anchovies and sardines are a critical food source for the bigger fish that sport fisherman love to catch. Leaving enough forage fish in the water is critical to ensuring a healthy ocean ecosystem and a thriving fishery.
