Hi everyone,

It would be great if you could all provide diagrams of the squid fishing rigs that you use.

Thanks. :angry:

can you use the same rig set up with a normal squid jig or is that only a bait option because of sent needed to attract them being a stationary lure

Hi Beakman, You can do the same thing with just an artificial jig. Should work fine. Though our member supersquid reckons that the baited jigs catch more squid.

I have never got around to putting rig diagrams onto the website.

Is there anyone else out there with more suggested rigs? Post them here (Same as Adam has done above) and then once I have a few I will make a page dedicated to rigs.

Cheers, Glen :zorro:

Glen re the comment by super squid seem he may be right after watching squidders at queens cliff. Baited rigs get hit first and seem toget most hits and land more :zorro:

yeh, baited jigs definently are more productive at flinders pier, basically due to the fact that there heavier and you can get them out further and deeper than artifical prawn jigs. not to say prawn jigs arnt productive, it just depends where you fish.

Hi everyone, I have moved this thread from the suggestions forum into the general squid fishing forum. It would be great if a few more people could provide diagrams of their rigs.

If you have a scanner you could do what Adam has done above and draw the rig and then scan the picture and post it here.

Thanks a lot,

Cheers, Glen :th

Its a great site - i found out about this site from there - its a bit easier for me to navigate around though, as i have been on there since the start of the forums, and have seen it evolve to its current state............

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

Has anyone tried these jigs yet? My Webpage
Looks like an effective way to use up softer/scrappier baits.

What a good idea! :th
I'd be interested to see if they are as good as the traditional baited jig, because they don't resemble a fish as closely (especially if you filled it with pilchard pieces etc).
Anyone tried these?

these are interesting rigs.... it seems some rigs use a float to keep the jig suspended in water. We use "bottom rig" here in Newport RI USA. The sinker is tied at the end of the line and squid jigs are tied 2 feet apart or so above the sinker.

That's mostly what's used in the Washington State area, bottom type jigs, tied in a line either with a weight on the bottom, or the jigs are heavy enough. There is quite a WIDE variety of squid jigs used around this area. Just wish our squid season lasted a little longer.

I've always prefered the luminous squid jigs, they seem to attract the squid better. If you're looking for some good jigs for the type of fishing you're talking about, check these ones out!!!! They are available CHEAP TOO!!!

You can find them at www.squidjig.com Colman's Squid Jig Warehouse
