August 22, 2004 Squid Jigging: (17 Photos)
17. August marks the time of year when Squid frequent the shores of our province, and 2004 was no different. This year they were unusually plentiful and were a little larger then average so the crew all took advantage of the opportunity on a few evenings heading down to the ferry terminal in Portugal Cove.
15. They are a lot of fun to catch, using and old rod and reel equipped with a special squid lure you can wet your line right off the wharf.
11. Reeling them in is just like dragging a wet sock through the water, and you have to watch yourself when they breech the surface as they spit water & black ink everywhere!
1. The guys did well managing a bucketful by nights end, and being entertained by some crazy locals who liked to wear the squid as jewellery before taking to the water for a swim!
