The Hanoitimes - Visit Cua Lo beach (Nghe An province) these days, travellers can hardly resist to the squid catching boat at night to enjoy every moment and feel the truly flavor of the sea.

From 19:00 pm every day, Cua Lo fishermen's basket boats are ready to take visitors to squid fishing. Previously, to get this experience, the visitors must be very hard and money consuming. But now, squid fishing service has become a common activity on any day of the week (if weather conditions are favorable). The squid season is usually from April to July, when squid come closer to the shore for reproduction. Visitors should rent a motorized canoe or speed boat to save travelling time, flexibly reach any destination, or quickly come back when getting seasick.

The cost of renting a basket boat at Cua Lo beach is about 300,000 - 500,000 VND for 1-4 people. When the boat is anchored for 2 to 3km, the owner turned on the lights. Normally, visitors should go squid fishing on a moonless day. Because when there is bright moonlight, the squid can see the road for hunting and do not gather under the lights. The fishing rod is a long and small bamboo stick, and the hooks are connected around the mock shrimp to catch the squid’s attention. Squids at Cua Lo beach are not big, usually only two to three fingers in width as the water level is shallow.

When the fishing rod becomes heavy, the fisherman must carefully pull up the fishing line, and quickly catch squid with a racket. The victory feeling will make visitors very excited. When newly catched, the squid is as clear as ice with the tiny black dots.
