There have been fair numbers of squid since 1st of July. On the East side of Puget Sound, the best area has been Redondo. I haven't heard too much in the Seattle or Des Moines area.
On the West side of Puget Sound, Brownsville, Bremerton Passenger Ferry Dock, and Waterman Pier near Port Orchard has been producing well.
I have heard many people say that they do better during the daylight hours for summer squid.
There are a couple of reasons there aren't as many people that fish for squid during the summer.
1. They don't know they are there, as it has predominantly been a Fall/Winter fishery.
2. Many people are after salmon or other species.
3. Summer squid tend to be very small, often 3-4 inches total length.
For summer squid, I recommend the smallest of jigs. Ideally about 1 inch long.
Hope that helps a little..
