There is no squid in the L.A. Harbor Bait receivers.
There are no Sardines either, only Anchovies currently.
Bill Hargrave the owner is working 7 days a week to try and keep up with the demand.
Along with a bad year for Sardines it's very very difficult at the moment he says.
Yeah, I just spoke with him personally.

On another note, I was able to make my own squid last Thursday night.
It took awhile to get a couple scoops, like into Friday morning.
The area from the Vees to Silver Canyon is the area everyone was working.
And because it's been a tough year for the seiners also,
my suggestion is to stay your distance from all the light
boats because the seiners are wrapping anything that moves.

Good Luck!

Thanks John- I'll shoot by the backside of Cat and get some there, I just get the creeps being back there with those light boats wandering around- almost been hit a couple of times- enough to know they aren't interested in safety.

Let me pass this along also.
There are Seals/Sea Lions everywhere on the squid grounds!
There are also some HUGE Mackerel roaming the area making life miserable once you pin on a squid.
I also noticed there WERE NOT a lot of birds/gulls around.
This tells me the squid volume is not there.
When the birds are around it usually tells me there's a nice volume of squid.
Even when the seiners nets came up there weren't alot of birds around.
I believe you could find squid all the way up the back from THE Vees to Ben Weston.
You'll have to look for it though.
That might be a better option versus having to compete with all the light boats and seiners.
Throw in the full moon . . . .

Once again, GOOD LUCK!
