The squid at the Nine Mile Bank were a bit finicky last night, and we used every trick in the book on them...deep and shallow jigging, slow retrieve, drop n' jig, chum, slow troll, you name it. We had one squid in the boat as of 10:00 pm, with the kids (and dads) starting to get restless. Then it starts to rain...hard. All of the sudden the stern rods all go bendo at the same time, and the whole boat goes WFO in the pouring rain. I wish I'd gotten some video of this one...it was pretty crazy. We put enough squid on the deck in short order to tire everyone out, and headed back in about 11:00 in a steady rain that was still falling when we hit the slip.

The storm wasn't really that bad. The swell from the west was almost non-existent, so the wind provided the only wave action at 2-3 ft. Aside from the rain, not really a bad night for fishing. I'm not sure what's going on with the squid as far as the timing of the bite, but they are still around the Nine Mile in large numbers, but biting late for some unknown reason. Saw a bunch of baby Humboldts cruising at the surface, which I have not seen before in California waters. The bite we got into at 10:00 went WFO and brought the sharks around the boat in short order, and we left them (and the squid) biting.





These fine young gentlemen stuck it out for a late WFO squid bite in the pouring rain at the Nine Mile Bank.
