Recommended Posts

Given how clear the water has been of late, and the reports i've seen round here - im goign to try for squid tonight - 

either off the pier or chesil cove - ive heard they have come in off both recently - 

 

anyone else heard or seen of squid being caught - they are usually Oct/Nov and then again in March - odd to see them in Jan

I don't reckon the squid know it's January Mike. Probably more to do with the still warm water. 
Good luck. Will you be using luminous lures? Have you taken your boat (slowly) to any marks and shone a bright torch into the water vertically? I hear this is a good way of attracting them!

not gone out at night on the boat - one step at a time!

going off the pier - lots of ambient light to attract them - then using glow jigs and glow beads - i got a UV torch to charge them up!

i'll report back if i catch anything - if i dont catch i'll say i didnt go .... 🤫

That's fair. Somebody else on here should take a leaf from your book!! 🤫
