I’ve been OBSESSED with squidding this fall season. Random, right?
Something about feeling the tug on your fishing line and reeling that sucker in brings me so much joy. And at the same time, you’re bringing home delicious, fresh catches for your dinner table! My favorite recipes so far has been fried calamari or a spicy gochujang squid and pork belly dish.
Looking for the best locations for squidding near Seattle? Here are my faves:
You can always count on tons of people bringing in their own flood lights. Is it me, or are there always large schools of squid here? Definitely my favorite spot to go squidding by far!
It’s not quite Seattle, but it’s definitely worth the 25 minute drive. Park on the street near Waterfront Cafe.

Best location for squidding with a view of the Seattle skyline! Search for the Marination Ma Kai address. Parking lot available.

First time squidding at this location, and I definitely had beginner’s luck here. Not that many people, but the people who come here are definitely pros.
There are multiple piers to check out in this area, like the one behind Elliot’s Oyster House or next to the aquarium.
Shilshole Bay Marina
Two piers available in Shilshole. If one isn’t working out, the drive to the other is less than 5 minutes away.
If you haven’t tried squidding yet, definitely try it this next upcoming season.
