Has anyone caught or even seen squids lately? Do they come close to the shore this time of the year?

I have been wanting to try squid fishing localy for the past few years, but I have not made the effort to do so. I am going to try and giver a valid effort this year for sure!!!!!

When I lived out West, we would use them for live bait for a variety of species, and they were termed the "CANDY BAIT" because they worked so well.

The best places to catch them was in sandy areas that were close to deep water canyons or drop-offs to deep water, because they would come out of the depths to spawn in the shallow sandy bottoms at night.

Here is a pic of a school of squid under my 1500W light.

Wow! Now that's a school. I saw them schooling in Deep Cove last year.

Crazy photo. The first time I tried squid was as "Tintenfische" in Austria. I thought that was German for another type of fish but soon realized it wasn't fish as it reminded me of clams.
