Capt. Ray reported a good night of squid fishing. A very good bite right off the bat settled into a slow but steady pick with a few good flurries through the rest of the evening. Mostly large and jumbo size tubes, many well over a foot in length tentacles excluded! Some over fifteen inches! Lighter weights and smaller jigs and Yozuri standards seemed to be most effective as there was less tide than the previous night where heavier sinkers made the difference with the squid hard down in the rocks but last night the squid were back to exhibiting their more normal behavior and cruising all throughout the column. Quantities varied from angler to angler but many filled a half of a five gallon pail with a few doing upwards to one full five gallon pail. Lots of double and even some triple headers too. There have been a few short fluke and a handful of scup and sea bass to catch and release on these outings as well recently as the water is finally starting to warm up a bit. Weather looks great for tonight’s squid trip so if interested call the office to make a reservation and come on down! Capt. Ray will set sail on the Lady Frances at 7pm.
Capt. Paul reported his squid charter for the John Viol group from New York went well although the bite for them was on the late side but once the bite got going it was lock and load on the good size tubes. Quantities varied from angler to angler but first mate Nicky reported one guy in the group was busily working on a second five gallon pail. The Frances Fleet has boats available for squid and other fishing charters, call the office for more information on booking details.
