When I was a kid in the late 50's and 60's my dad would go to Atlantic Ave in Boston and buy a 5 lb block of frozen squid. Bring it home to Marshfield and we would catch stripers. Surf, river and boat.
It was a great bait.


Went to see the whatfixer.

I have never tried it. I have also never seen squid in the stomach of a bass, though I have heard of it. There are lures designed to imitate squid that do well, so I don't see why the real thing wouldn't work. Bluefish love it that's for sure. I think one of the reasons you don't see people using it much is because it attracts so much in the way of skates, rays, sand sharks, sea robins, etc. More so than pretty much any other bait.

Most definitely. They move in and out of most of the NS estuaries. You just have to pay attention.

I have been blessed with quite a few over 50 lb fish in my life.....before I swore off live bait I caught two of of those 50's on live squid...

On a kong rig, (double live lined squid under a balloon) drifted out from a bridge..... (the same bridge that gave me yet another two 50's on live bunker back in the glorious 80's)

Stripers eat anything....

they will key in on squid in areas where they are available, but will rarely turn down a live squid when it dangled in their faces in areas where there are no squid present....

so yes squid is a bait worthy of your experimentation. :th:

Bass eat squid. I've seen plenty of bass caught on squid chunks. Throw some on a hook and you'll see. Another good thing is that it stays on the hook so good.

Never tried or heard of it. Wouldn't say its impossible but unlikely. Out of the fish I've kept and gutted I've never found squid in their bellies. Bunker, sand eels, fluke, crabs, but no squid.


Should gut a bass from here during the squid run here in RI. Nothing but squid in them.

During April trying going to the docks and look for ink spots on the docks. If you find some, that means someone been catching. Thats how I do it here but most of the time I can just go check out a certain bridge and there will be 100s of people squidding.
