the weather gods smiled on morton bay this morning :)
took a run over to peel, would have been worth the trip even if there weren't any squid
but there were..... :P

stopped at 10, but could have had heaps more
it's always good fun watching 8 or 9 squid chasing the jig
it was like shooting fish in a barrel

the largest is 300mm tube length and came on a baited jag

i'll be keeping a close eye on the weather to go again :(

i prefer my seafood fresh (not from the freezer)
so i have no problem in stopping when i have enough for myself and family

peel is definately worth the trip at the moment
will keep you guys posted when i go again

p.s.
mojiko jigs were what they wanted (blue & green)
wouldn't touch yamys, didn't try the shrimphunters (didn't need to)

the weather gods weren't as kind at peel today
between the wind, rain and overcast conditions it was nearly impossible to see the squid
i had a case of the dropsies, went 2 from 7
mikeyb did much better with 6 (i think)
well, there's always next time

mickyb - thanks again for the jig

good effort for you guys for going

some times it pays to go out and ruff it and some times not.
1000 hours....I can relate to that as I've been fishing the bay for about 18 years now and come to think of it...not much has changed fish wise , just more idiots on the water.
it maybe why dazza calls his boat "the idiot magnet"....lol.

so true
i've fished pretty much all up and down the qld coast
with the exception of the outer reef at lizard island, moreton bay is my pick of fishing locations
on the coast the only way to avoid the idiots is to be out either at night or at sparrow's
hence the reason for targeting squid

chippy
I've fished from the T line which is next door to the swains right up to chinaman which is north/east of whitsunday
Island , so at a rough guess thats about 200 miles of reefs loaded with fish or use to be lol
we use to stay out for 2-3 weeks at a time and just hop from reef to reef untill we filled the freezer.
what a life

the weather gods had the sh.ts yesterday :(
but they slept in this morning, took a run over to peel (couldn't resist) :)
the water was a bit cloudy but i still managed 8 squid, the largest was 250mm tube length
pulled the hooks out of a good one at the boat (bugger)
i did release 2 because they were a bit small side, but i have plenty for the table
looks like i might need to buy more beer :P

try this
cut the tube open and lay out flat.
score the inside of the tube to form diamond shape cuts and not too big...you need the outer skin intact to help curl the portions.
cut into rectangles of about 70mm by 40mm.
then crumb or marinate..or add them to the seafood marinara as I do at the last minute.....wickked
it helps if you have a good supply of prawns and fish when it comes to cooking a good seafood marinara with a garlic and cream sauce...yum yum droooooolll.
