Squid from piers

A friend and I were at Goleta, hoping for lobster Friday night. While waiting, she fished with a sabiki. She caught a variety of small bait sized fish (jack mackerel, shiner perch, and walleye perch), as well as a small squid.
  1. How common are squid around piers?
  2. Since squid tend to school, if you catch one is it time to jig for others?
  3. Does anyone know any references to our local cephalopods?
