Like to hear if anyone has had similar experiences.
We live on the Eastern Shore of Va., love squiding and often travel to New England to catch a few. A couple of weeks ago, a friend told us that a castnetter caught a few in our harbor, 1/4 mile from our house. So of course we had to give it a try. That night, at the boat ramp, we set up a light and started jigging. Didn't take too long before we caught one, then another and another. Only got four small ones but hey squid are squid. Have tried it a few times since and do get a few, very few, but because we are addicted to the game, it satiates, for a short time, if not cures the habit. This keeps us going until the next trip north.
As far as we know, no one around here has ever fished for squid with jigs. We urge our fellow squid addicts to try their local bays. Perhaps there are other areas that squid inhabit that are unknown .
Has anyone else caught squid in areas that are totally new to the sport?
