Squidnation

Squidnation

 

 
Squidnation was founded in 2004 after avid fisherman and owner Bill Pino witnessed the effectiveness of spreader bars in the Mid-Atlantic Tuna fishery.
Fishing on his 32 foot Incommunicado - Bill watched two of the top local charter boats limit out on yellowfins using spreader bars. At that point, Bill decided to give spreader bars a try but couldn’t find a supplier without ordering online. Bill thought that full body squids may cause a bit more commotion then the shell squids that he had seen being used. He designed certain color patterns and contacted some manufacturers of rubber fishing lures and began producing some squids for personal use.

 
The Ocean City season was winding down but it was time to test his experimental squid bars. Bill and his crew set out towards the Washington lumps and quickly jumped on by football sized yellowfin tuna. The next week Bill was a guest on an overnight trip charter trip on the charter boat Espadon with Captain Sylvain Cote’. On Oct 2nd at 8:00pm, Bill deployed a 12 inch squid spreader bar, complete with the newly designed squids. As he was setting it in the short rigger position it was ripped from his hands by a 186lb big eye. That was Bill’s first big eye tuna. A few days later he set out on his own boat Incommunicado and was slammed by a quadruple header of Big Eye Tuna all falling prey to his new funky colored squid bars. Word had started to spread and Bill was soon making spreader bars for all his friends and quickly followed by orders from friends of friends. Within a few weeks Bill had orders for over 100 bars and a business was born.
