Ted - welcome to the forum. Squidding has been pretty good lately. All you need is a light spinning rod with 8-10# test line, some small weights, and some small 3-4" squid jigs. All colors seem to be working . . . check out the online store at squidjigs.com as they have a great selection of jigs as a reasonable price. Also bring along a few weights in case the squid are on the bottom and you have to sink your jig when there is current and/or wind. Most folks use a coleman-style gas lamp (around $25 at Walmart) and hang it on a rope from the bridge raining to attract baitfish and squid.

Most of important of all - DRESS WARM at it can be brutally cold when it is windy. If you are lucky and it is warmer than normal, you can always peel of a layer of clothes.

All the folks I have met on the GI bridge are friendly and will give you tips on how to catch squid. Just watch them, it is easy.

Good Luck! :)

Jon, Ted - my mistake. The correct website address is www.squidjig.com, also called Colman's Squid Jig Warehouse. They are terrific. . . I just ordered some of their bullet jigs and prism jigs, which having been the hot baits as of late. Try some, you won't be disappointed.

Good squidding! :rod:

Wow! That's all by yourself?! That's like 2 squid in a minute and 1 squid in 30 seconds!
I was there two weeks ago. I fished 1am to 8am got only 60. It was a very nice night.
Not cold at all and there were pretty good amount people on the bridge but after I talked
to them, non of them get 1 squid per minute, not even 1 squid for every 5 mintues.
Might be colder weather is better for squid? I will give it try this Friday and hopefully
the squid still there. If I could get 1 squid for every 5 minutes, I will be pretty happy
for this time of the year. But last year I did see people with two rods got 2 squid less
then a minute !

Good For You! I only know the bridge and the pier near by. I am not local and it take me 2h+ to get there. Compare to the guys come from NY,
I think I am still closer to RI. Until last year, I went squidding on the way home from togging. This is the fist time I went there only for squid
and like you said, the bridge was in deed sux this year! I only use squid for bait and I have enough bait for sea bass from my last trip.
For next year, I hope I will have better luck on the bridge. I only know the places for togs in Jamestown but not for squid.
