Does anyone know how to keep squid alive in a bait receiver? I've heard that they must be kept in the dark or they will lay eggs and then die??? Any input.....

Wow, nice welcome, thanks.... I'm sorry, I didn't communicate clearly. I have a 3' x 4' bait receiver that I keep in the water attached to the dock behind my boat. I would like to keep a quantity of live squid in it, perhaps 100 or more, and have heard that it is very difficult to keep them alive for very long. I would like to keep them for at least a week or two. Does anyone have any experience with this that could offer some advice??

Sorry about my englsih (look at my sign), i don't want to sound angry, i just want to help.
I kept the squid in this way as you described. Used such a net:

The only difference is that you must leave them far from the port and at a depth of 40-50 meters. In this way they managed to survive after 7 days.

Thanks Glen!
I am using http://www.imtranslator.com/ but I'm not sure that everything is correct:)
One addition for squidboy - squids become a canibals when are in small area so you can keep a maximum of about 10 pieces in this net.
