We filmed this one back in early July with Dave Murphy. It had to be our best saltwater day...

You would have to catch Killer Whales on a Pocket Fisherman to beat a day like that. :o

Yep that was a great video!  Brings back memories of when there were significant squid spawns on the WCVI.  Usually boats troll white hoochies but man what I wouldnt give to have that type of experience in the ocean!

You know we were having a special day when you see Dave Murphy jumping up and down like a kid as the fish popped off the hook. ;D Thanks for watching!

Yep, takes a lot to get him excited these days since he’s done it all!

Dave sure has a lot of " theories" when it comes to fishing and they are usually sound.  Fishing with him is money well spent.
Great video. Thank you.

interesting video. Kenny Myers told me years ago about doing exactly this same fishing in a bay in Ucluelet where the squid come in to spawn.
he also said that more often that not while jigging squid with a light spinning outfit, a big Chinook would grab his jig right after he hooked a squid. he said it really made for some interesting battles!
