got 5 pounds fishing at 69 last night! Despite the muddy water, gotta use orange jigs to penetrate the mud so the squid can see your jigs! Most luck with an orange jig than the others I had in my box!

The bite has been sucking because of the Full Moon. It sweeps the bait and squid in and out. The currents are too strong the baitfish and squid are more spread out. The New Moon always supplies the best bite.

Anyone try jamestown lately, or beverly pier?


I tried Beverly today (Saturday) and didn't catch a single one. My brother-in-law and I were the only ones trying for squid. There were several other folks catching flounder and mackerel.

Last nights trip with Frances was great.  Don't think we even made it to Nebraska

shoals.  We drifted all night with only 1 move.  Started in daylight and it was a slow

but steady pick.  As it got later it got better and better.  By 10:30 it was an all out

blitz, on bottom, mid depth and even on surface.  I employed Anthony's method and

caught  a bucket just on that, one jig no weight and even if you couldn't see them

they came up and hit it.  Lots of times had 4-6 squid fighting over same jig.  This

lasted till 12 midnight and then started to slow but we headed in at 12:30.  Took home

almost full bucket and gave away another full bucket.  Yee Ha.   It was great being able

to experiment.  As for colors, pink, green, white, blue, orange tried them all with great

success.  Did notice how the squid would come up sometimes and race to the jig only

to stop short and look at it and reach out to test it and after touching the jig (wrong end

of course) they would leave and another would come and do the same.  Got some of

the spray scent (menhaden) and used that to see if it made a diff.  yes it did they started

taking it after touching it.  Only 25 people on board and everyone was moving around.

I caught squid on stern on bow and both sides of boat.  BTW size did not matter, 1.5,

and mostly 2.5 were working equally as well.  Gotta go clean em now, should be done 

in about 4-5 hours (hate this part).

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.

It's good with a light source and no sinker. Day time is good when they're in and blitzing, otherwise it's really inconsistent. Landed 25 in 4 hours today from 12-4pm

I was at GI yesterday from noon to 5 and caught 14 squid. The tide was coming in. There were some nice runs but short lived. Many other folks caught more than me, some left with half a bucket full, I don't know what time they started fishing. Saw some sea robins but no bait fish. Some large squid were caught earlier and then a bunch of medium sized ones.

INOMATO do not ship internatioanlly but if you are in Tokyo, it would be a good shop to visit. Just catch the Train to Fuji City and it is a short walk from the station.

Posted by bufford on 05 November 2010 - 06:31 AM

Went jigging at Waterman (1 squid) then to Annapolis (just outside of Port Orchard) (1 squid) then on to Redondo (0 squid). So my consensus is ....aliens have spirited away all the squid to perform unnatural experiments on them...oh, the horror!
Actually, just before I got to Waterman, a couple of jiggers got about 20 apiece...figures.
Is anyone consistently catching these tasty little buggers or is the "run" simply not in yet? How about further north or south? Inquiring taste buds want to know. :sq:

I can tell you where there at...But? Nobody wants to believe me..LOL :angel:
