|First catch of the night|
I managed to catch about a half dozen squid. I planned to have these guys for lunch on Sunday but as I prepared to clean them I could not help but be fascinated by them. This was especially true when witnessing the movement of the chromatophores. These are the little brown spots visible in the picture. They are used in communication displays, as well as camouflage.
Like many other aspects of Nature, the time for "squid'n" will only last for a short time. Hopefully, there will be a few more trips in the near future. While netting them is the best method some were trying to catching them with rod and reel. Who knows....I may eventually be the first to land a squid on a tenkara rod.
