  • Squid Fishing

    May 7, 2015

    A lot of the time squid are closer than you may think, but you seldom see them. They stay deep and don’t come out during the day. But at night everything changes. Emboldened by the darkness squid will dart in and out of the shadows, between the murky depths under the submarine lights. Sometimes a whole group of squid will materialize right before your eyes and disappear in a flash. They are attracted to light for the smorgasbord of food items, shrimp, shiners, and plankton. Squid are super aggressive which can make them easy and exciting to catch. They will actively pursue and attack anything that looks like food, including each other!
