Videos: Squid & Other Bait
Whether you’re fishing for food, bait or just for fun, this fishery is easy to figure out and a great kick off to the season on Cape Cod. Capt. Mike Hogan and Capt. Larry Backman head out aboard FV Skipjack to kick off their seasons by joining a fleet of 60+ boats and test out some of his new squid jigs.
There are few better baits for big striped bass than freshly caught squid. That’s why the Salty Cape team went down to one of our favorite secret striper spots last week and captured a hungry school demolishing loligos on the surface.
In late April, Nantucket Sound fills with spawning loligo squid, creating an excellent opportunity for anglers to stock up on offshore baits for later in the season or grab a few for the grill. In this video, Salty Cape crew heads out aboard F/V Skipjack for a day of squidding off the south coast of the Cape. (1:02)
With waters finally reaching 50 degrees in Nantucket Sound this week, Capt. Larry Backman decided to take F/V Skipjack out on Wednesday afternoon for his first squid trip of the 2016 season, finding a few nice pockets of squid in the process.
