#26567 Trying to set up a basic newbie rig for squid fishing.

Posted by slayer666 on 21 July 2013 - 12:48 AM

Hi mate first of all I think the rod you are using is a bit to short if you are fishing landbased. You need a longer rod to cast out those jigs far enough say about 8'6". A good starter rod to get would be a Rovex EGi Squid Wrangler Rod made by Jarvis Walker and they are pretty cheap to. As for the reels and line get a 2500 reel loaded with a good quality braid from Japan say about 10-15lb would be good and leader go about 10lb flurocarbon leader. The reason I say get braid is you have more feel and better casting. As for your jigs visit this guy www.worldfishing.com.au he has high quilty jigs for very cheap. I hope this helps and good luck with your squiding adventures

got 5 pounds fishing at 69 last night! Despite the muddy water, gotta use orange jigs to penetrate the mud so the squid can see your jigs! Most luck with an orange jig than the others I had in my box!

#28039 North Shore Squid 2014

Posted by SalemScott on 10 July 2014 - 03:37 PM

Just got back from the pier and managed 17 small to medium sized squid, which is my best night so far this year.  Oddly enough, 16 of these squid were caught in about a 15 minute stretch of hooking up everytime I put the jig in the water.  Other than this short stretch it was slow going.  I got these just after high tide.

I take time to pick up other peoples trash from time to time and end up scoring all sorts of loot, dropped in the dark. Being cool has it's rewards.

#24682 Squid Fishing in Burma (Myanmar)

Posted by dieter on 27 May 2012 - 10:17 AM

Just go to any fishery harbor in Myanmar and ask fishermen to take you out to the sea. They know where to find squid and definitely return with much more then you expected.
There also some trips from Ranong/Thailand to Myanmar water. Interested people organize the fishing trip by themself and be out at the sea for some days (also catching big fish).

Cheers, Dieter

Posted by Oz_Audio on 11 February 2012 - 04:56 PM

INOMATO do not ship internatioanlly but if you are in Tokyo, it would be a good shop to visit. Just catch the Train to Fuji City and it is a short walk from the station.

#21653 Best places and conditions for squidding

Posted by bluenosehunter on 02 March 2011 - 02:54 PM

Dude! ur prob 60 m from squid! walk down your driveway!
i got into squidding a few weeks ago after catching a nice big calamari from mosmans..... was baitcasting a mullie when felt something latching on every time on retreival. got him in close, kept him interested until i tied an old $2 jig (never used!) I found the weed beds hold squid. all along those jetties. and if u can get into yacht club im sure there will be better spots in there.

Was at JT last night caught 31 squid mostly large. Real slow until just before high tide. Would have caught more, but small stripers chased them out
