SQUID BLOOM
« on: November 04, 2010, 12:44:00 PM »
So a friend of mine heard from some local commercial fishermen about a squid bloom that happens at a pinnacle about a mile and a half offshore that attracts monster lings.  30 lbs is a small one supposedly so obviously we're going there Sunday but I wonder if anyone else has heard about this.  These commercial guys are all on scuba but I'd like to freedive it, does anyone know the depths out there?

Out where?  I have a buddy I can ask.  He fishes commercially and dives, so he'd be in tune with something like that.

I don't think they're Humboldt squid.  They're saying it's at a pinnacle a mile and a half out from Fort Ross and that this bloom happens end of October, early November every year.  I've heard of this down south but never up here.

What are those commercial guys you talking about doing out there? Urchins I know of a few boats commercial diving for them but always right on the coast line in where the abs are. Cerious what they were diving for so far off the coast commercialy.

Maybe the off shore Ft. Ross Reef, marked by the buoy can? Best guess based upon the information provided. If I recall correctly parts of the reef were marked at 35 ft according to my fish finder.

yeah, sunken reef.   No squid bloom though, it was an elephant graveyard.
