The squid have made the yearly showing along Nantucket sound ,I started to hear reports of them starting to show Friday ,I had a comfirmation Saturday when a neighbor showed up at the house with a plastic tub full of them,he was out running the kinks out of his outboard when he ran into a large school of them,and as luck would have it he just happened to have a rod and squid jig with him :hihi They were all in the 16-20 in. size. The big spawning girls should be off the spawning grounds and making their way to us soon. :chuckle:

Great news... all hell is gonna break loose soon.

Time to tie up some montro squid for the Atlantis... BTW the new lines for 2005 are really something! I have some favorite spots where a good long cast from shore puts the angler right into the evening inshore squid drive. :cool:

Yeah that's a real shame Adrian. Just a little less pressure on the stripers- and I mean a LITTLE less.
