Seafood City (Asian Supermarket)  carries 3 kinds of squid; small, large and jumbo.  You can buy by the pound.  I am going fishing tomorrow and got 1 Jumbo (cut bait), 4 Large (whole bait) and 5 pieces of Sardines.  Bill was around $8.

Nice thing about Asian Supermarkets is you can buy what need for a day / trip and its fairly fresh.  Once in while they sell fresh dead Jacksmelt and its Ling candy.

I probably should have clarified my first post. Safeway used to carry the good squid in the general frozen section. They have moved it to the fish section in a small freezer next to where they process and package the fresh fish. Ask the person running the seafood counter. They are usually very helpful.

I suspect the safeway in my hood probably doesn't carry the good stuff.

By the way, Do you know the difference between squid and calamari?...  about $8.00 a pound.

In the restaurant they must be deep frying squid.

I don't go into safeway very often so when I do, I load up on bait, martini onions, gin, and hot sauce :smt005
usually get a comment from the cashier of "what the F are you doing with that squid?"

Tell them its for the martini, thats how they do it in Europe, roll your eyes and leave. Picture the poor bastard when he drinks hi calatini.
