Starting a thread for the 2019 season.  Boat is in.  Hoping to get out in the next week or so.  Anyone out yet or have an idea of water temps in Buzzards or Vinyard/Nantucket sounds?

Thanks for the sea temp update IAMFISH.  I have to travel to NJ this weekend due to a death in family but hope to get out soon after I get back.  I'm most familiar with squid 'hot spots' in Nantucket Sound in and around Osterville / Hyannis and am happy to share those in exchange for information about spots to try in Buzzards Bay since I hope to get a chance to run with a friend who's boat is in Mattapoisett right now.

I can confirm the scup in Buzzards Bay in the area of west island / Fairhaven side.  I will be watching for the squid confirmation in that area as well.

I went out Sunday with my dad on our boat at Collier’s Ledge. Caught two squid. Big squid though. They should be here any day now, going to try again this upcoming weekend.

I got to colliers ledge around 5 pm and fished it till around 9 pm. There were no commercial boats. Only boats out there were my boat and a friend's boat who left the same time we did. Water temp on the Garmin read 50.9. I was very surprised they were not in abundance yet with that temperature reading. However, the two squid were massive. I am assuming this weekend should be a hit!

I am going out Saturday night or Friday night, depending on the weather. I will let you know how it goes. And no, we anchored. However, we were marking something on the sonar, not sure exactly what, but they were not biting.

Hi Asiansquidder.  Did you get out the other night by Hyannis and have any success close to shore or farther out?
