Blue Water Jon Meets Blue Eyed Squid

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.

You can read more about Jon’s experience in the local San Diego news, as well as on Jon’s website with more complete photos.
