My daughter had said she'd like to come with me and take some videos so about 6.30pm off we went.
Walked the esplanade using a torch for the dark patches between the streetlights and managed to hook 4 and land 3.
( Don't like to use a torch out on the point as other squidders get upset )
Megan made me let one go as she said it was too small compared to the other squid.
The things you do for your kids !
After Megan watched for a while I asked would she like to try and she managed to hook one on about her second cast.
Played it for a few seconds before it spat the jig and there was plenty of Oh God , Oh God he's taken it , he's hooked !
Pretty sure she would have let it go too had she landed it.
Unfortunately all the videos came out very dark so I have to get the setting right on the camcorder and we'll try again.
To sum up we had a nice walk , nice talk and a couple of squid to boot.
Went back down there this morning about 7.30.
The water was a bit dirty so I was just casting blind rather then sight casting to them.
Managed 5 in about 3 hours and and was on the way back to the car when I stumbled across a school of them.
Got another 5 as fast as I could put the jig back in the water.
Left them biting as 10 is plenty for the three of us.
Have taken photos and will post them when Megan gets home from work and shows me how to crop and post photos.
