Never wearing light color squiding again!----"If you get cranky without your silk hanky you'd better steer clear of the squid jigin" grounds!" A line from a great song called "Squid Jiggin' Grounds" by Ed McCurdy. If you guys haven't heard it you can find it on youtube. It's hilarious!! One verse:
Says Bobby the squid are on top of the water, I've just got my jigger 'bout one fathom down
When a squid in the boat squirted rigght down his throat
And they're swearin' like mad on the squid jiggin ground

This season is not over yet boys. I think the heavy squid numbers will be in this weekend. I went on Monday under the Newport Bridge and at around 12:30AM. The bite was heavy, it lasted for like an hour and a half. Big tubes. But it was really windy condition, and I was too tired to add more jigs to my rig. I was using 3 classic squid jigs and a sinker. I fished the bottom using this rig. I also used the the coleman jigs seen from the photo below. I let it go 10~15ft slow sinking..and got big tubes jigging this way too. Go out there boys..season's still in full swing..I am going tonight..hope you see more boats out there...

Went out with FF last night. Left the dock at 7pm and returned at 12:30am Was still light when we started
and fished for 1 1/2 hrs before it got dark enough to turn on the lights. not a single squid was caught during
that time. Once dark enough it was a very slow pick of mixed size tubes. Towards the end there were some
at the surface but very hard to get them to take the jig, they liked to look at it. I caught exactly 20 squid for
the night. Best on the boat was not much more than that. Even numbers of small med and large tubes.
Pink and crystal clear were the best colors. Most squid came on the top jig that was about 3-4 feet above
the bottom jig. But if you tried to fish that zone keeping your weight off the bottom got no takes. Got 3 at
the surface doing the figure 8 with top jig just under the surface. One double for me the whole night. There
were squid there just not concentrated in numbers like last year, heard every excuse in the books as to why
its like that. Mostly 2' waves then some rain and then flattened right out, but was cold. Met an angler who
visits the forum but doesn't post. Should have been there Wed night, story of life.

Finally Saturday is here.
We got to Hyannis at 12:00 pm
There were many boats out there. We started fishing but it was slow going pretty slow, may be half a bucket in two hrs.
I though that it's going to be bleak for sure.
Then all in a sudden 3:00 pm it was a blitz, major biomass of squid we could not catch up with the bites.
By 6:45 pm we filled a hundred quarts cooler and 1 1/2 buckets.
We have to leave because of the heavy fog couldn't see more than 20 feet in front of us.
The bites was still good but fog make it too dangerous to stay and it was getting dark.
Yeah the squid are still in Hyannis.
We got enough squid for food and bait for the year.
So the rest of you still have not get your quota go for it.
Here are some pics.

When does the fall run typically begin? Is it as predictable as the spring run (keep an eye on water temperature until it reaches a certain warmth)?

Hi guys, newbie here. Do you think going during the day is better than going at night? I went out last night 9-11pm and had zero luck.
A lot of it is just being at the right place at the right time. When I have been out there, a blitz moved through the far end of the GI causeway. Then one moved through at the corner of the stone wall. Then one moved through some boats that were squidding. Meanwhile, I managed 3 in 3 hours. I'm sure after I left, a blitz moved through the spot I was and everyone around ended up with full buckets. Also, with the moon shining bright overhead it tends to spread the bait (and the squid) out. The light doesn't do anything for the squid. If you can get out during the day, by all means, get out there. You can't win if you don't play.

I thought the new moon was the best time? went sat night in Newport and only had 3 come over the rail and into the pail all on a green yo-zuri. saw plenty of schools pass right through our light but they must have all been female because they couldn't make a decision about whether to eat or not
