Whats up fellaz,
Ive officially turned to the salt side!!! Not that I wont fish Fresh water but living in Oxnard has its perks 8)

My brother and I left CIH and headed NW about 5 miles to see a parking lot of boats slaying the squid. There were probably 40 boats (5-10 party boats and the rest PB's.) and everyone around us was going BENDO!!!!

Not knowing what to use and having no live bait tank, my brother drops an iron down and I drop a leadhead. Instantly my brother goes BENDO and says " I Think I'm snagged" just then I go BENDO and say "Were in 300 feet of water, were not snagged, were hooked up.

We caught a WFO bite and had landed a bunch but there was one problem.
Left the gaff at home :cry: needless to say I was squirted with ink several times, the boat got a nice new paintjob and i had a cold ride back :roll:
WE had a blast, Squid dont fight hard but they sure do put a BENDO on your rod :shock: Go out and get some while you can....


Sorry no squid porn I'm in process of getting new digi..

I Think I'm snagged LOL, that's gotta be the best turnaround in emotions from, "ah crap" to "best feeling. evar." :) Nice job!

Hi TroutChaser,

Sounds good to me! Welcome to the total salt-side! I hate Squid fishing and don't usually reply to Squid trips as I have 0 interest but I applaud you for doing what I refuse to do! :lol: :lol:

Once was enough for me!! Never again!

YEAHHHH, buddy!!! Nice job! Didn't know they were that far north yet!

Make sure you "tenderize" them first w/a mallet before deep-frying in Beer batter. They are MMMmmmm good! Dip in Maranara.

Thanks for the report...Oh, and get a gaff. :wink:
