Are those the $26 jigs? Let us know how they work! I think I was looking at those a couple weeks ago. They look great, but I'm fairly new to squidfishing, so I didn't want to pay that much for a couple jigs unless I knew they were good.

That's around how much I pay for them.
I let you know if these works, from what I am reading it works great during day time, I am not sure about night time though.
In a few weeks we will know for sure.

Gosh, $26....I would hate to get those snagged on a left over lobster pot.

Man....26 bucks a jig is pricey! I was pissed last year when I snagged bottom and lost 3 yo-zuris. I am rigging different this year to compensate, instead of rigging a main with dropper loops, I plan on stepping down in tensile strength after each jig, with my last dropper to my lead at 1/2 strength of my main line. I figure that will save me as many jigs as possible if snagged on anyhting. Might be a bit too complex, but if I had a 3 jig setup at 26 each, something to consider...

Travis, it's an addiction man.
Nowaday, it's cheaper to go and buy than to fish for it.
The jigs that I just bought I won't fish bottom.

Most often I bottom with Ultra Lense with 1/2 oz up to 2 oz weight depend on the current.
Last year, I lost 4 jigs in one night... that wasn't fun at all.

I did the same ... 4 jigs in one night.

I understand the addiction, I am a striper and tuna fisherman...with fuel costs the way they are, you have to be an addict to run a boat, let alone and pay for the gear! I only started squid fishing last year and it was awesome, and my wife loved it too. Squidding is very entertaining!

TravisS,
I squid hard during month of May. Eat some save some for striper during September. Never try tuna before, tuna with flying rod is my dream fishing day *one of these days* :lol
I used to buy squid in the box (I think those squids are caught from Cali) for striper, but it's not the same.
My wife hate fishing (she doesn't have patience at all) but I took her to squid fishing and she's hook.

I often bring 2 rods with me, 6'6" with 15# mono line. One rod I tie 2 jigs with weight, other rod I used one jig (2.5oz jig to 3.5 oz jig) without weight. I try braid line before, it's doesn't work great because so many times I actually yank our its tentacles :P. 10# line is actually perfect that's what I am going to try this year. I try 6# line, don't like that much.

2 yrs ago, squid doesn't bite in the bottom, they bites on top, my friend and I get over a bucket while other people look at us and start cutting their weight.

Where are you from Travis ?
Say hi to the gang if you head down to Newport in a few weeks.

I am from Mansfield, MA and squid down at GI. Everytime I go there I end up fishing off to the side in the cove, I have never even fished on the bridge yet, I'll have to give it a shot if the crowd isn't too crazy. Great info about them hitting on top! I met a few guys from this site down there last year, they were EXTREMELY helpful and curteous. I enjoy learning this fishery as it is completely new to me.


As far as fly fishing, that is pretty much all I do. I fish light tackle spinning gear and flyrod for stripers and tuna. The class of tuna have gotten much bigger than the schoolie size class of fish from a few years ago, time to step up to a 14wt.

Fishing on the bridge the first week when squid runs is a good thing. Or the other side of the bridge near the hotel at night time is good, lots of light over that side.

After the news spread forget it :th Time to find different locations ... I'm going to hunt for some this year..

I often fish at the cove after working hours stay there until 11pm to 1am depend on the bites. Its more enjoyable that way and you can talk with lots of people in this forum while you there. From what I am reading, lots of people in this forum buy generator now *save a spot for me guys*:P

Also, I found it more enjoy-able to take few days off work and fish on the bridge during day time, much less people.

I also know a few guys/family that take a week off just to stay there to squid, they are from VA/NJ/MD area. Now that is hardcore :lol

Travis, Any good place to take lesson on fly fishing ?

tooth, I see you're around the forum :P since you lived close to Goat Island, let us know if you see anything. btw, I still have your lures from yrs ago :)

I am always happy to teach people how to flyfish. I am only 27, but I have been flyfishing for 21 yrs now. My father is a FFA certified instructor, an unbelieveable fly fisherman. He runs a light tackle charter business. I don't want to post anything here about it as I feel it is rude to plug him as he is not a site sponsor, but if you ever want to charter him I can give you his web site and contact info, send a PM.

Fly fishing for Stripers is on my list. I've been meaning to to take up the sport, but, it seems like you need alot of practice. I've tried it once before and couldn't get the hang of it.

Travis, what area does your father run his charter?
