Night Squid Fishing and Sunset/Evening Adventures
Night squid fishing has become very popular over the last few years. Just think of catching your own fresh calamari!! The boat’s lights attract the squid, and the after dark action begins! Light tackle, and a variety of squid jigs are all you need to jig up some of these tasty treats. The squid fishing will continue as long as the squid keeping biting.
