It is very disappointing. I am going to try tomorrow (fri) night. Will get there around 10:30pm with my light. Last weekend we caught a total of 8 squid (2 last thurs night and 6 last fri night) in about 7 hours total, so they are around, but just not in the numbers of previous years. As we approach the second weekend in May already, I don't know if we're going to see a decent run at all this year. Sucks.

I feel your pain, GT_R. Is there some kind of "fall season"? I had heard something about a fall season but have never confirmed it.

4 squid or 4 buckets?! Haha. If it was 4 buckets, that was the quickest squid run in Greenport history -- 1 night! That has to be bs. I hate to admit defeat so I will give it a shot tonight...me and my brother-in-law. We'll be the two guys with the yellow pull-cart. Stop by and say hello if you're there. Will report back tomorrow.

Dear Skyline, I spoke directly to two gentleman who fished the railroad docks on on early Sunday morning(10/21/07') at around 2:30 AM -6:30 AM. High tide was at 6:30 AM. One of them caught 21 and the other caught 4. They told me there was no one there fishing, and that the pier was totally dark. The same two guys told me that they were catching rather large northern kingfish(2-3 Lbs.) during the day on worms the previous week, along with scup.
