Just got back from an all nighter at GI, came home with half a bucket. It was really slow picking since I was at the wall sitting between two generators. I picked up my light and move down the wall near the bridge and caught all of them there. Pretty big schools swimming by every 5 minutes but didn't want to take the jig. Then around 3:30am the squid started to get hungry and was attacking my jig 5 at a time. I didn't bring up 5 at a time, only manage one or none at a time. Around that time a big school of about 100 meds to large squids just floating around my light not really moving.

water was really calm the whole night. I think thats why squid wasn't really going after the jigs. I find that I do better when the water is kinda ruff and not a lot of lights around.

Earlier that night a big ray like the one poster earlier was swimming by. Couple of people manage to snag and hook it with 4 rods on the bridge. They tried to pick it up by the rock wall but all the lines snap. Also some guy fishing for striper on the bridge with 3 pretty big poles. He lost one of his pole over the bridge into the water. When something took hold of hit, maybe some big striper?

Well I'm freaking tired went there at 5pm after working a 10hr shift. I'm getting some sleep.

p.s. any one went of FF last night? and how did they do?


Too bad they didn't all fall in and get electrocuted by the ray....morons. Yeah let's mame the ###### out of it with trebles and then lose it. I wish I was there, damn I wish I was there.

Thanks to all for tips and information. Made my first squid fishing trip-caught 25 jigging off of Goat Island bridge 8-9:30PM this past Wednesday night. Would have been lost without everyone's help.

Also was good to know that there is relatively no etiquette, at least at this site. Had a number of issues with people jumping into my spot, pushing, etc. While in most parts of the world this would have caused a fist fight or someone to be thrown into the water, I knew from the postings that this was possible and kept from taking action.


do not repeat what you saw.

have fun fishing

I'm slamming them. 20 pounders, 30 pounders, and yesterday we got a 40. Not too mention all of the fish that are just legal. I hope this continues through July, but I don't think that it will. And the Tuna are here!!!

Anyone been catching squid lately at GI?

I went Saturday for an hour. Was waiting for the tide to come up, so I could go scup fishing. Caught one large squid for scup bait in that hour. There was only a handful of people there fishing. Some people was catching, one guy had about 7 caught when I left.
Caught about 10 scup only 4 keepers 11inch plus, one scup we caught was 13.5 inchs pretty nice. Also caught a 11 inch fluke threw that back also.

I havent...been under the weather...Anyhow, someone I usually go with has been doing pretty decent...past 3 outings close to 100 squid.
...homemade jigs. I havent seen em yet. But once Im better, I'll be back out.

Scup out in full force , scaring the squid momentarily, as well as skates & fluke...imo, once the blues are in thick (which shouldnt be too far away, if they arent already) I suspect the squid to thin out/move...

Does this guy drive like a blue GMC truck and wear a winter vest with salt and pepper hair? If so he was there saturday pretty much killing it with his homemade jig.

the sites are www.squidjig.com and www.juicyjigs.com

like i said earlier... let's level the playing field with these "guys" who don't want to tell us where they're getting these jigs from... homemade ok... but if you're getting it somewhere and want to be an ass about it... now i'm letting the secret out... sucks that the season might be winding down, but hey there's always next year :)
