Roger was excited to report the late season squid crush last night aboard the Lady Frances. After dark and once anchored those who focused on squid had no problem getting plenty of the tasty mollusks of varying size from small perfect fluke and sea bass bite size baits to super tubes well over 15 inches and everywhere in between! Hi hooks had an easy 100 pieces of a full bucket and double and triple headers were commonplace for those in the zone! There were sheets of squid everywhere and at all different levels in the column. Squid fishing like this once past the spawn is not at all uncommon but for whatever reason a surprising number of people seem to have the idea that if it does not happen in May or the first week of June then it just isn’t going to happen and that is a FALSE sentiment. Some nights will be better than others and last night the squid had the feed bag on!! In fact the squid were even chasing hooked scup to the surface!! Often a half dozen to a dozen squid would chase another hooked one up! That is just how fishing is sometimes. The squid fishing last night was most certainly of a level that we would have been most pleased to experience at any point in May. The evening’s first half of the fishing trip started with a pick of fluke of mixed sizes. One angler buck tailed three keepers while another settled for a 6lbr and a brace of jumbo sea bass on the drift. Enough shorts to make things interesting as well. Once anchored most focused their efforts on squid. Cutting up a few freshly caught squid, as stated many times before, was the way to go to stay very busy fishing the bottom for fin fish. The bottom fishing for scup and sea bass on anchor with fresh squid was a bit better than the last time out but most anglers (of the handful who joined us) fished for squid since it was so good. A good way to think of this trip is like an extended night time half day and while like any other trip it has no guarantees, but it does however, offer tremendous potential!
