Roger reported that the squid fishing last night was remarkably improved from what we experienced last week and in all honestly was about as good as he had ever seen it before the end of the first week of May. It was not red hot by any means and at best it was probably just okay but it was a start and most of the squid were of good to excellent size with some really big tubes swung aboard. Capt. Ray moved several times trying different areas with the same slow chip results in all of the regions sampled. There were a few double headers. Lo hooks had under a dozen while hi hooks had just over 30 pieces with a good number of the anglers aboard doing 15 to 25 pieces. Again not that bad of a start. There was also a strong tide for part of the night which may have kept the squid more hard down in the rocks, at least early on. By mid evening the squid were seen chasing the jigs and were caught at various depths but they were somewhat tough to finesse. As far as the jigs go, word from the crew was that the luminescent and blue were producing slightly better, however each night is often different so it pays to have a selection of colors and sizes. The water was much much more cleaned up as compared to last week although still was not what we would call crystal clear. Nevertheless things seemed to be right on track for the calendar. Some awesome weather is on tap for the next two nights, plenty of room and the Frances Fleet will be setting sail for Squid at 7pm both tonight and tomorrow night. A few pics from last night’s squid trip are provided courtesy of Roger. Capt. Mike is ready to set sail for fluke in a few minutes so look for a full detailed fluke report LATER THIS AFTERNOON!
