Default Squids!

How and where could one catch some squid for the family?

I think it would be great fun to take the kiddos out for some squid jiggin.

We use to hang lights off the old Ft. Pickens pier and throw a cast net when they came to the light.

If they are schooling in the lights a cast net is not needed just throw one on a treble hook and dip it in the water by the school. All of his peers will try to eat him and will hang on even when you pull the bait out of the water. We used to load up on them when we were kids w/o a net

Did you just write that you live in Navarre and the next beach over is too far for you to drive ?.........FYI.......Navarre beach and Pensacola Beach are on the same island, same road !.......go to the end of the road and you're there.
I would email a map but its too far for my computer to send things, I mentioned Navarre and my computer said no way because it was all the way down the street

Hey Skipper, think out of the box. My old van pretty much dictates just how far of a trip I can make. It has to stop for a drink of water every few miles. It would be a real blessing to be able to drive as far as I would like to. No problem if you tease me about it, but I have an instinct to take up for others. Your post is funny though, especially when your computer won't send that far.

A few decades ago, on a night fishing trip, we had a light under the Shalimar bridge. All of a sudden we had squid all over the place, they were hitting our bait, don't remember what it was, but we started putting some squid in our fish cooler and man they really inked up the water. And it was pretty neat how they kept squirting water like little jets. Creepy critters though. Good luck in your hunt.

I was thinking out of the box ! And all the way down the street ! lol

It's just funny (to me) to hear someone say driving the family from Navarre to Pensacola is far ! What a beautiful family drive along the coast, and short drive .....to each his own.....anyone is welcome to think its way to far to travel....by donkey or skateboard

Sorry to hear about your van troubles Fishing Grandpa.......hopefully you will get the problem solved, if you need 5 gallon water containers to keep in it I would gladly donate some to you
