Squid Season is kicking off again in California this year. Currently, most is the boats are staged in the Channel Islands. The harvest forecast is kinda dismal this season, but you can never really predict Squid runs. The biggest factor could be the 60 percent rise in purple sea urchins on the bottoms munching away at anything in their path, which could easily affect the Squid nesting and egg beds. Stay tuned for more updates from the fishery.
