Hi all
this is a good question????

Which is the best squid fishing location in the country?


No need to give specific GPS points for obvious reasons.

Options here in Vic are:

1. Flinders

2. Mt Martha

3. Queenscliff

4. Portsea

5. Killarney

6. Pt Lonsdale

Any others?


Cheers

Blue.

I wouldn't go any where near saying Lorne is the best place for squid (with the amount of times i've gone home empty handed).
From all reports over the years around here, Queenscliff and around that area and near Hasting in WPB produce the best size squid.

I'd like to add, that anywhere in a boat is the best place for squid.

We just anchored up in the Whitsundays and dropped a light over the back, swarms of squid came through. You could catch them with a dip net if you were fast enough.

I want to try this idea back home now. We had a traditional white light, but i saw lots of boats up there using blue LEDs... food for thought.

white or blue lights.....
it doesn't make much difference. i prefer white
a lot of boats fit the blue ones only because they look better, not because they work better :)

Thanks mate, we also noted huge 1meter + Barramundi swimming in the Blue lights of the Marina at night.
So i guess got all excited about these "Blue" lights.
