Thought I would start a new thread as the Newport RI thread has died and I'll
fish just about anywhere in New England. Planning on a trip pier fishing on
North Shore Mass. This would be more appropriate as Thursday night
Eastmans in NH is doing a squid trip and I am planning on going at this time.
Here's a copy of my last report just to have a starting point.
"Reversed the curse.
North shore of Mass has squid. Fished for 2 1/2 hrs last night in Salem and
came up with 10 squid for my efforts. A lot of couples squidding had around
30 for 2 hrs of fishing. Took me a while to figure it out but in the end came
home with 10 a mix of small medium and one large. 90 % of the squid caught
were tight to the bottom. I had my doubts about the area but I have never met
a freindlier bunch of folks fishing on a public pier. Bob was a great help pointing
out that I was a little to high off the bottom, lowered it 6" to my 1/2 oz sinker and
started catching. Turns out he is one of those ocean kayak fisherman. There
was a slight language barrier but the universal love to go fishing made for a very
happy camp out there. One other note was the regulars there said they have
been catching even during the day. I will be going back."
