Hi everyone - first post, enthusiastic kayak fisher and general naturalist here.
I have never caught squid, but I see there are threads up for the 2013 and 2012 seasons, with posts from regulars, hope nobody minds if I fire this thread up (mod - maybe you could pin it?)
I live in Stonington, and I see the docks have some lights that attract squid. Are these lights everyone refers to where the commercial boats are tied? I'm going to concentrate on the Stonington area, but information for Noank, Mystic, or anything within driving distance is much, much appreciated.
Mostly I intend to eat what I catch, if it turns out to be a great year I will give it away and/or keep it for bait
I'm ordering some squid jigs now, and a green/red stick-on light - only a white light is required but I've almost been clocked several times even when I had two white lights on my kayak. If anyone knows of a fairly cheap submersible light that I can use out of a kayak, give a holler.
Obviously I will be posting here to update everyone on what my own experiences are.
