Hi, try Rapid Bay jetty my wife and i have been down there nearly every weekend for the past 6 weeks and have picked up around 20 squid each time. Second Valley jetty has also been reasonably productive. No shortage of salt and pepper squid here for us and the rest of the family.

cheers

Daz :)

Squid always come to the Jetties on the eastern side of St vincents gulf from late June till early spring in large numbers to breed.
it happens when the water temp drops and that dosnt happen until we get the first real big rains.
without a doubt the best squid jags are the Yamashita Natural coulous, sizes 2 and 2.5, the best colours depend on the conditions, but i find the coulor thats just like a slimey mackerel is probarly the best. i always use a 14 pound flurocarbon leader, rod is a shimano rack raider 3-5kg and reel is TD Diawa sol 2000 with 10 pound fireline. nice light rod, you can use it for hours and when you get a nice squid they put a nice bend in the rod.
the Yamashita squid jags i use i cast them out let them sink and reel them in super slow, if youre getting ribbon weed on your jag you are only just reeling too slow, no twitching or anything just let the lure drift through the current and thats normally all that you need to do.
and mabye grab yourself a round two ring yabby net for landing the massive ones you get quite often.best of luck.








hi 1s24k, thanks for the report! :sq:

Hi All,

Just stumbled upon this forum and loving it!!

Lots of great tips and ideas on here that I will definitely use.

My girlfriend and I love squidding and catching crabs. Im not much of a fisherman so this is the best way for me to come home with the goods :)

Going up to Moonta this weekend maybe Ardrossan as well. Is there many around at the moment?

i was down ardrossan jetty last week and we caught three huge squid in fifteen minutes right on sunset. i used a pilchard on a simple squid jig. the next day when i was fishing at price my dad pulled up an undersized king George with ink all over it. so basically all I'm saying is anywhere between port Clinton and ardrossan are really big squid so it's worth chucking out a pilchard and casting out off the last 20 metres of the ardrossan jetty.
