Thanks for your report. That sounds similar to what I saw last Sunday. The season is probably winding down. It has been a fantastic squid season. It is time to find something else to do.

slow wet night sunday ended up with 9 in 6 hours so it wasn't a total loss

Got 3 and 4 good size squids last Thur and Fri at Pier 86 in 2 hours. Look like the squids are leaving.
Weather looks good today, might try again tonight.

At Pier 86 last night from 6 to 8 PM. Got 14 squids, 2 mid size while the rest are big (10 inches +). Not too bad for two hours.

i've been wanting to try pier 86 for a while good to hear theres some big ones still out there edmonds has been mostly mid sized ones, but last weekend was fun got 30 in ... a long time... 8 hours or so. finally caught 2 on one jig

That is very much what I heard from my bro in law since he hitting Edmond a lot and he likes to stay out there long hours.
I like Pier 86, quiet, good squids, shelter from the cold, and a lot of lights on the dock.
If you never been there, then it might be a little tricky to find the dock.

Went to Pier 86 last night from 6 PM to 7:20 PM and I got 7 total. 3 big and 4 mid.
I would have stay longer but the wind start to pick up around 6:30 PM.
I thought squids would be gone since I have not seen any anglers in Pier 86 lately but I still getting squids.

As most of you know about the Salmon/steelhead closures affecting marine areas and river/lakes too. Well I just got word from a WDFW fisheries bio from Region 5 and she called in to confirm what shellfishing closures are next. And it would be All of them..... Squid, crab, crawfish, clams, ETC. Yes I said squid. This CLOSURE MAY be in effect as soon as Sunday/Monday. I wanted to give you all a heads up on whats on the table. If you need more info reguarding closures you can find them here at; http://wdfw.wa.gov/ for the latest information on closures check here; https://fortress.wa.gov/dfw/erules/efishrules/
Good luck to all during this hardship and let's pray that they can open what they can!

Well... Shrimp and Crab fishing are allowing so far this year so I doubt any closure for squid. Just my opinion.
Posted 10 June 2016 - 08:37 AM
Things have been 'Resolved' so this means, no shellfish closure, areas reopening to fishing soon and a salmon season is set!!!! Any reports on squdding this year?

I am seeing some squid on Facebook, what you guys think?

Hey Farmer, if it did what it did last October and November you will not have trouble getting a few buckets of squid! Just get out on a pier with lights and jig from 8-10ish. Usually the top of the flood or bottom of the ebb works best. Be sure to stick it out for a few hours, when they come in they a lot of fun! Start reading up on how to clean them and research recipes! You can also keep a few for bait in the spring for sand dabs and lingcod.

Went out to Pier 86 and Alki last night around 9 PM to scout the docks.
@ Pier 86: Only a father and his young boy out there for squid. He got like 1 in 30 minutes or so. However I.saw some inks on the ground from previous days so look like squids are coming in.
@ Alki: 20 or so anglers there on the dock. Not much action while I was there for 10 minutes. A few catches and they are about 6 to 7 inches.
Btw, if you play pokemon go, Pier 86 has a lot of stops. LOL

I went to Edmonds pier last night. The pier was packed with people, not squid. Some were crabbing. A few small schools of squids came by, gave us some excitements during a couple of hours I stayed there. Overall, the action looked slow. I managed to get 5 medium size squids. Perhaps, a bit too early in the season. But they are already there.
