If you’re a fan of fishing photography there’s no doubt you’re a fan of Jon Schwartz AKA Blue Water Jon. We’ve covered some of Jon’s amazing photos in the past, and this time is no different. Well, it’s a little different in that it’s not fish, but instead a massive school of squid inches from his face.
Today I came face to face with a giant shoal of squid and got some amazing underwater pictures! I had hoped to get fishing photos of white seabass, thresher sharks, and yellowtail, but I never dreamed I would encounter a massive, frothing mass of squid. I really lucked out! This was a local Southern California excursion where I accompanied my kayak fishing friend Josh Pruitt. He has an uncanny knack for catching big fish from kayaks.
