firstly thanks to Glenn for fixing my stuff up with e-mail address and Glenn the aapt will do fine.
OK here is a trick I use here in morton bay for shy or bloody fussy squid when fishing in shallow water less than 10 feet as I only sight fish where I fish and get very good results.
A new jig will sink too fast as most are set up to do just that and fussy squid won't go near them other than a look to see what the hell was that that flew past at a hundred knots and then back off.
here's what you do...first wrap a small length of thin solder wire around the shaft above the top ring of spikes and a drop of supa glue will hold it in place just fine and not put off the squid,about 2 or 3 wraps should do it then you shave off enough of the weight (if it is lead) until your jig sinks ever so slowly and EVENLY. do this in a bucket of water in the laundry or sink so that the jig still sinks slowly and is almost ready to use.
When you get down to the salt water pull out a file and make small shaves until the jig only sinks VERY slowly or if possible almost neutral boyancy and sits level as is sinks.
Fussy squid can't help them selves and sneek up behind the jig and strike from the rear and hey presto come here sucker.
We have perfected this method for the big tiger squid we get here in morton bay and our results are good.
We cast out past the mob of squid as not to spook them as these are easily spooked and wind in to just before where they are sitting and then just twitch your jig a little and retrieve line slowly until you get their attention and work your magic from there.
I only use 6lb line and 8lb flurocarbon leader so a very light drag is a must and a medium action rod of 2.5mtrs.
The water is so shallow where I fish I have to wait until the tide is 2hrs in so then there is enough water to fish and thats when they come in off the weed banks to hunt and guess who's waiting for them ME.
shrimp hunter is the jig of my choice and works mighty fine for me.
hope this bit of information helps you out some and fixes your fussy squid problem.
