Nothing last night. Spent about an hour on the railroad dock. Some baitfish in the water and what looked like bluefish darting around in the light. Not good.

FYI...I have a confirmed report of squid in the bay. They were seen in decent numbers a few nights ago on a private dock while bass fishing under the lights. Hopefully they will start to show up in Greenport this weekend.

Is there any sign of squid yet?
At least one?

Why everyone like to ask, instead of trying themselves and let us know?

My friends went 2 nights ago, had a quick flurry right around dusk, caught 8 squid. Most people caught 1 or 2 only.

I plan on going Sat. too. I have been waiting months for this and wanted to try last Sat., but that would have been no good. This weekend I hope we will yield nice squid in abundance!

No, you got the process wrong. Bluefish is your squid-catching instrument once they are here. Catch the predator and they spit out the prey - squid. No need to buy expensive squid jigs, only to lose them to the bottom...

Seriously, there is nothing you can do once blue shows up....

just came back from Greenport...was there starting at Friday 10pm and left at 1:30am

didn't catch any squid but the squid are there...we nearly caught one but it got away

around 12:45am we saw bunches of squid swimming around our lights, but none approached our jigs...we were using pinks and blues...

I think it was a non event season again. It came and went.

Agreed. There are bluefish, fluke, sea robbins, and giant porgies all over Southold Bay. I don't see how there could be any squid run with that going on.

Maybe next year...
