SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

Just went down to see if there was anything going on, I had only about 20 minutes to kill. Wasn't expecting to see anything really, Didn't think that it would start this soon. You can bet that the place will be mobbed the rest of this week and weekend.

I took a quick peek in the bucket and some of them were pretty large. I would guess about 18+ inches.

thanks for the info... I almost ran out of the door with my gears but it looks like the story of people catching a couple buckets was a hoax. I was there on Sunday and my buddy and I were the only ones there. The water and air were cold and we saw no sign of squid at all. We jigged for a while and gave up. I agree that the water is still too cold. This weekend is going to warm up and that should bring them in.

Hopefully the squids will be in by next week. May is approaching and it looks like there will be a delay for this season. Compared to last year we're about 10 degrees cooler and that means a lot. I guess the squid are temperature sensitive when it comes to laying eggs. I don't know much, but during the fall the water temps was colder than it is now and there was a good deal of squid available.

Hey Squid_Man, when is the "fall" season to catch squid in Newport? I am only aware of late April/early May "spring" season. Please advise. Thanks.

The fall season kicks off around september to november... It's good to put some long johns and layer up. The bite is good during dusk or dawn. The night bite is generally slow for the most. :ink

Ladies and gentlemen get your squid jigs ready! I went tonight from 1am until 3am and caught half a bucket between me and my brother!I was checking out some of the other guys buckets when I left and they were some that had their whole extra tall buckets filled!The average size of the squid were 9 inches but we got some that were a foot long :D I even seen some older guys catch a double squider a couple of times! Right on the Goat Island Bridge. I noticed they were caught mostly on pink Yo Zuri jigs just right above the ocean floor with a 1 ounce weight at the bottom of the jig setup. I was also using a propane latern to light things up.. :oops

YYYYEAH!!! The squid are in! Between my brother and I we only managed half a bucket on 3 hours. AT around 3:30 the bite was nonstop for 10 minutes! They were well over a foot (from tip to eye)during that time. The bite died and it was back to the occasional smallies... about 6-9 inches. It's gonna be awfully crowded on the weekend! Friday nights forecast is expecting thunderstorm... The bite should be interesting...

From Dartmouth to Newport, you want to drive 195 west to 77 to 138. You're better off using MapQuest and find directions to the Hyatt hotel in Newport. It's at Goat Island, and we fish on the bridge. Can't miss it!!!
