Hi Jon, I was just wondering where exactly are the female squid then?
I knew Greg Christy quite well while I was in SA, bloody tall bugger to work on chokka boats! He started life as a school teacher, who would have thought. Glen, the squid tend to travel in single sex schools and then meet up on the spawning grounds. Also, simply because only males are being caught doesnt mean that females are not there. Catches of L reynaudii in South Africa have been shown to be biased towards males who attack the jigs more frequently than females. Using smaller jigs or different colour jigs may catch females although this has not been proven. Jon, dont get disheartened about the lights you are using - I have it on good authority that some of the first lights on boats in SA were "borrowed" from the St Francis tennis club!
