I remember many years ago some eastern L.I. party boats used to fish for squid during the spring run. Are there any still doing it? Are there any public piers, etc. where squid can be caught? Day or night? Great bait and tablefare.
Every year about this time a few reports mention catching squid under the lights off the Railroad dock in Greenport. Don't know much about it though! You might give WEGO Bait and Tackle in Southold a call. They may have more info.
