At Courageous Sailing center we use squid as bait. I've never seen a squid before. We use shiners fish as well. We hooked the shiners fish alive; it was cool how it was still alive. We didn't catch anything but we did in the traps we have. We caught a lot of crabs as always and lots of sea stars. Some of us played four square with the kids and they take the game very seriously. The sea stars we catch love to stick to the crabs or mussels. It's very cool how they stick on things with their millions of tiny legs.
