SQUID EVERYWHERE

The warm water/cold water contrast is striking this year. Squid have never disappeared from the local islands and high spots, and the number of squid is increasing again, with the candy bait showing up at the 14 Mile Bank, 43 Spots all the local islands, and even nearshore spots from La Jolla up to Huntington Beach and into Santa Monica Bay. The candy bait is making for some interesting mixed-bag fish for island and nearshore trips.
