Humbolt squid are hitting good now, they are being caught in waters off San Diego, water about 800 ft deep. Boats have been getting up to 220 or more a night with 70 fishermen. Went out last night on a boat with 10 fishermen and caught 70 - 80 in about 1 1/2 hours. My first time, interesting and kinda fun. It takes heavy gear, best with braided line.
