Hi everyone,

I just had a craving for calamari, and it got me to thinking about squid. I have caught them at night way off shore, but I have never targeted them within my usual angling areas. I know there are squid pretty well everywhere, I've just never thought to fish them before. Can anyone give me some pointers on fishing them? I am thinking that one would do best at night, shining a powerful light over the side of the boat - I don't know if this is legal though. Should one fish near shore, or drop-offs; near the bottom, the surface, or mid-water? Near kelp?
They are pretty easy to find off shore. Just throw a jig over and let it sink a bit, and you are almost guaranteed to get into them. Is it like that around here too? My family has a boat and cabin in Barkley sound, so any info. on that area would be even better. Thanks.

As hard as I've tried, I have never been in fishing condition at 3am in Ukee. Unless we just got in. I am really trying to get out of fishing for a living, and a big part of the reason is to free up my summers. Hopefully I can get a week or two of angling in on the sound this season. And if I do, hopefully I can jig up a late-night snack. There is a deep fryer at the hut ;D.

Thanks for the responses and tips boys.
