We tried Galilee on Thursday afternoon for an hour. Nothing.  Stonington for about 4 hours Thursday night. Nothing. OneEyedSquid even the rig blessed by the squid whisperer doesn't work when there are no squid around.

 

We'd like to thank all those who helped us make this a successful trip. Really enjoyed our time squilding at GIB.

Glad to hear it Alaska! Have a safe trip home; hopefully we'll be able to meet up next year.

Thanks. Made it home last night. You could not imagine the traffic on the GWBridge and the NJ Turnpike. Might be up again this year if the squid hang around for a while.

FF was slow. I got 19, mostly small ones . My partner got only 7. It was a light crowd. They said on the report couple people got 40...I didn't see anyone with that amount personally, but maybe. Most had 6 to 12 I thought.. I caught a few with weight on bottom, but more when I took weight off and fished near surface. I was out there and had fun, wish the squid were biting better.

Probably around a dozen or 15... Two guys next to me got 2 in the first 10 mins I was there. Didn't see another squid caught in the next 2 hours! I waited for a dragger to come in because a worker there told me that the squid typically follow the boats in from the oxean because of their bright work lights. It pulled right up to unload it's catch of fish 15 feet from me and still no squid!

When no one showed up on Thurs, we though they all knew something we didn't. Must have been the stormy weather that stopped them. The previous Sat, we fished for 4 hours before catching the first squid. From 12-2 it was quite good. So the cephalopods might have shown up later. Who knows, we'll never figure it out.
