Provincetown Pier Shut Down to Squid Fishing
July 3, 2012
CapeCodOnline: Squid fishing on MacMillan Pier [in Provincetown, Massachusetts] has changed from a fun night out to an underground business akin to the “Wild West,” pier officials said this week.
The pier, managed by a public corporation, has traditionally been a place for recreational squid fishing from late spring to the summer. As many as 50 to 60 people can be at the pier each night. Squid are easy to catch, which make them ideal for families. And the equipment is simple: a fishing pole, line, tackle, a squid jig and some bright lights shining on the water.
