Capt. Ray reported a slower night of squid fishing last night. A few anglers did well but most found the squid to be very tough to trick into taking artificial baits. In fact while the squid were all over the place and the water column and frequently near the surface, especially late at night, the squid were not as aggressivley feeding on the live bait in the water as they were the night before. We had the bait on the surface to the point of turning the water a pinkish hue again but for whatever reason the squid were off their feed. Most anglers did get at least a handful of squid and the top producers filled upwards of a half a five gallon pail. Light fresh water rods and casting the jigs out away from the boat and letting them settle with the lightest weight possible seemed to have some edge last night. Tonight is a new night and no two nights are the same and we look forward to a new trip on the Lady Frances at 7pm with Capt. Ray. For those interested in the finfish side of things. The catch and release sea bass and short fluke action was also not quite as good as the night before but anglers did catch and release some of each. Two nice size black fish last night was a pleasant addition and as usual there were a few skates and hefty sea robins. Late in the trip there was one keeper fluke taken as well.
