Hi Annie,

Welcome to the forum. I thought you can just peel it off with ease. not sure if that would make the squid softer or anything. if it is going to be used for bait it will be better to leave the skin on and dont wash with fresh water at all.
BTW, there is a dedicated subforum here on squid cooking and cleaning, have a look there if you want more information :lol

Cheers
Ric

Just use a knife to scrape it off.

or you can cover it with beach sand and then rub all the sand off with both hands and the skin will come off with it

to tenderize the squid
soak it in some kiwifruit

Not sure what kind of squid you have but my wife says to pour hot water over it as you peel it off. If you want them for sashimi its tricky :)
