The Squid's in.....
The weather over the last few days has been dark and dreary with those persistant easterly winds....the kinda weather that just wouldn't encourage you to go fishing. Nevertheless, John Geary had a few brave souls who were willing to venture out.
John took his crew on the Lee Star to Power Head and the Pollack Rock reef grounds....and they were soon into the usual suspects; cod, pollack, whiting, etc.,.... Then one of the lads couldn't make out what he had - what's this! A squid! Sure enough, he had just caught a squid on his baited hokkai rig. Within another two minutes another was landed of the same size. Scrumptious....that's tea sorted.
Squid do tend to turn up at this time of year and have been caught accidentally both inside and outside of the harbour. It might be worth someone's while to try to target them with specific squid jigs. If you do, let us know how you get on.
