Water temps are already warming. Currently, they're at 41 degrees in Newport. The Block Island buoy seems to have gone offline, but the Montauk one is showing 43 and Nantucket is showing 45. Assuming we don't have a terrible middle/late Spring, I think we are in for an early squidding season. Now, the big question is, will this be like last year where they hit hard in Mass. or the year before where they hit hard in Newport or the year before that where they didn't hit anywhere at all until the Fall?

The water out at the canyon is 50's degrees so it wont be long now.  My guess is 2nd or 3 week of April.

At 40,000 Lumen the squids will jump up to your boat and sleep with you. That's some insane light power. Fatal attraction.

 Are you using all that light from a dock or bridge, or from a boat??

News from a co-worker of mine is that some squid was caught last night from Jamestown. I have no confirmation, but I gets the blood moving. Hope to be out soon. If I get anything confirmed I will post

Can anyone suggest any piers or bridges where we may encounter a few squid. We'll be in the area in a few weeks. Anywhere in NY, Ct, Ma or RI.

 

Got hooked on squid fishing in Tasmania last winter and miss it now that we're back in the US. So happy to hear there are some doing it.

 Despite all the hopeful squidders here who think the warm winter will bring early squidding I doubt it will start until at least mid May-June as it usually does. But I have caught them in Stonington CT and Newport is probably the largest squid hunting ground for shore bound anglers, then on up to Cape Cod and Martha's Vineyard and on up to Boston. You just need to watch this thread and the one for Hyannis and you should get good reports on exactly where they are when they come in. Tasmania sounds like fun!!
