Area 10 blackmouth
« on: November 13, 2017, 08:44:17 PM »
Any reports? Anyone been out care to share? I was out at mid channel Bank last week and found a small blackmouth to keep seemed slow. Now that its close I need to farm closer to home and maybe try this squidding thing from the boat.

I haven't been out since last week but MA10 has been a total shaker show for me.  Bouncing up to MA9 for crab has kept me from returning home empty handed. Hoping winds drop Friday.

Squidding is a night time activity off the piers under lights.  Myrtle Edwards and Edmonds are favorite spots.

Mark I think you would be surprised squding during the day or at night from a boat. The rate of catching is definitely slower for me during the day but possible. 2 weeks ago I launched about an hour before sunset and put about 20 squid on the boat before the sun fell. After sunset  With 2 Costco  Catapillar battery powered shop lights strapped to my downrigger we bobbed around in 50-80 ft of water jigging towards the bottom reeling up every 2-3 minutes. After about and hour we pulled up a school and limited out 2 people as fast as you wanted to basically. The squid were actually jumping out of the water hitting the lights. Just be prepared for a ink absolutely everywhere. A wahdown pump is almost a must. I was fishing colvos passage near olalla.

Haha what a hoot!  Never thought to do that.  How do you choose your spot, other than in 50-80 feet of water? That sounds hilarious.

   Fished south end of Bainbridge on Monday. Two of us caught way too many shakers. I've decided to wait till Jan or Feb to fish and hope that the season will be open and the little guys get bigger.  Fishing for squid from a boat near the Ollala area sounds like way too much fun.   Rifleman

Yeah that squidding thing sure does sound fun to try. And yes we were crabbing up in 8.2 by Everett marina. Friday I was by myself and Saturday and Sunday I had my wife with me. Limits were had if you worked at it.

A hoot for sure. I'm no squid expert in a boat. I've done it off piers a lot and by boat 5-6 times now.
The best part is getting lucky with no wind on a clear night with a big moon. It is so cool being on the water in those conditions at night. 1 night we were catching squid in 6 ft of water. I'm really not sure how to find them. I just let the tide push me we're it wants as long as I'm no deeper than 80 ft. Sometimes we get lucky in 20-30 ft of water. Once you get them up to the light they seem to stay there. No backing down or trying to hold your spot. I imagine if the wind or current was really pushing you then you would have a tough time. I learned about this area from a friend so I new there were squid in this visinity. I can't tell you much about any other areas.

Sounds like a fun challenge!  Just try not to run too far or too fast in the dark this time of year.  There is a sea of logs in the Sound from the river runoffs and it would be nearly impossible to miss one if too fast and too far of a run.

Mark,
    Yea to that, the sound is covered with a small forest of debris. Take it easy on the gas  pedal.  Rifleman

What a blast that was Thursday night for the first time I tried squidding out of my boat. Only got about 3.5 lbs but that was plenty to clean. I’m glad I was in my Customweld rather than my arima what a mess. The best luck we had was by the cranes in Elliot bay. We did see all the people at the docks pulling them in but the mass was not there.
