#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!

The bite has been sucking because of the Full Moon. It sweeps the bait and squid in and out. The currents are too strong the baitfish and squid are more spread out. The New Moon always supplies the best bite.

Posted by BillG on 25 August 2014 - 11:55 PM

When does the fall run typically begin?  Is it as predictable as the spring run (keep an eye on water temperature until it reaches a certain warmth)?


It's really more about the moon than the water temps in the Fall. Unlike Spring, the water is already warm "enough." The squid are here in small schools throughout the Summer and into early Fall. If you look at last year's forum, you'll see people were squidding into Nov. My theory is that the big factor that contributes to a squid "run" is that the predators don't bust up the bigger schools into a bunch of smaller skittish ones. So, since a lot of the Summer predators move out in the late Sept., early Oct. timeframe, the squid can make bigger breeding schools in the Oct./Nov. full moons. So, depending on moon phase, the Sept., Oct., and Nov. full moons may bring big runs into the Bay. So the two weeks surrounding the new moon between those full moons would be good times to go squidding. However, moon and tide and your available time to go squidding likely wont line up, so just get out when you can, hopefully not when there is a huge, bright moon overhead.

Spent a little time down in Beverly last night, there was a guy down there with testing out a new underwater light he just built.  No squid but plenty of sea worms swimming around.  Turns out building these lights is relatively cheap.

#27453 Greece squid fishing

Posted by lord of the squids on 03 March 2014 - 08:07 PM


I'm going to Greece (Samos) for 2 weeks in July/August :woot: and plan to do some small boat (tinny or row boat) fishing. Sounds like it's not a good time for squid though I'll be looking :sq: . Has anyone experience of this type of small boat fishing around Samos?


Matt :au: but live in UK

You are unlucky ,i could help you a lot but i just saw it.Anyway july and August is a very good period for Samos(south side of the island)

Went out squidding this morning and got around 4 pounds before a seal came in and decided to bite my jig and snap my line. I lost a jig that I got while pulling up a crab pot in the summer. Does anyone know where I can buy this jig?Posted Image

I make them for Ted's sport center
