Los Angeles Chapter

Our presence in the second largest market in the U.S. is very strong, just like all of the fisherman that live in it. LA Chapter President John Ballotti has built the chapter into one of our strongest ones in California, covering West LA, South Bay, and the San Fernando Valley. We have very strong ties to almost every fishing club in Los Angeles and are constantly trying to keep them updated. We also have annual chapter events and fundraisers, including on-the-water seminars on sport boats out of the local landings, and of course, the Fred Hall Show in Long Beach.
