So what are the squidders up to these days? I went to the canyon two week ago for tuna and only caught squid at night, LOL. I was happy with that and the boat nicknamed me the "squidman". I caught alot and they were impressed how I was catching them every cast. Thanks for the help guys.

How did you fry the squid in the picture above? I didnt do so good, guess it was too wet and it exploded all over. Do you have a salt and pepper squid receipe?

April sounds pretty early for squid, usually don't see any in CT, RI, or MA until late may. Please let us know if any are to be caught at the mentioned location at any time. I'd love to find them as close as Jones Beach since the most prolific LI spot I know of is Greenport.

I agree April is too early but it was a warm winter. Once in a blue moon you hear that they come in the bay in May or June but disappear quick. You can get them at the ocean reefs at night from like May thru Sept. Party boats out of captree go sometimes.

 Thanks for the news. Did you try Jones and froma dock or did you go in a boat? I really doubt they will be around for another month, but somebody has to be the first to find them would be nice if it happens early and strong.

I agree, they usually come around in end of May or June. I wouldnt waste my time in the bay it is so rare and so short when they arrive. I havent seen squid at the Jone piers, only at the bridges but doesnt mean it cant happen. I heard they came in Merrick bay a few years back.

You are much better off at the 6 mile reefs (60'+ h20) in the ocean while chumming. I have a 22' boat. Need willing crew to go on a perfect calm night. No one I know is willing to loose sleep over squid.

Id also be up to going to a party boat at Rhode Island, which should happen in the next month or two. I heard Greenport is closed to public now.

 Hi Crabby, thanks for the info. I will likely be on Marta's Vineyard last week May-first week of June. Going up for a friend's wedding and hope to bang the squids there. I have done most of my squid fishing up there for the last forty years and know the game well there. If they are around where you mention when I return I may take you up on a night trip. Do you get them to come up near the surface with lights? I have only caught them way offshore boat fishing and they were two foot tubes. I am really more of a dock squidder but I am retired and I can go anywhere at anytime for good action.

Can anyone confirm Greenport is closed to the public now? I live in Hicksville Long Island and was planning a trip to head out there sometime in the next 2 weeks. Want to make sure I can fish for squid before driving 2 hours there.

My dad just got a call from a friend who went out there Monday (May 2nd, 2016) he caught a little over 50 squid. He said it wasn't closed or anything, so I'll be heading out there tonight. Will report back tomorrow.

Anyone know if squid can be caught in Jamaica Bay (near the Howard Beach area)?

 

I've heard from bait shops and read from reports that squid appear in the bay (but usually these reports are just related to the striper season).

New York Times reporter was down on the dock in greenport last night. She was preparing for a piece on squid fishing in the science section. Pretty cool that she talked to us and I even ended up translating some Korean/English for her. Probably will be in the paper soon....hopefully it doesnt get too much more crowded though.
