The only thing I did different to the other 10 or so goes, was move about 30 mtrs to the right.
Thanks for the tips on the jigs.

I have had squid follow a blue jig but not take it, i quickly switched to a green jig and the squid that was still hanging around took it no questions asked!

"On clear calm sunny days there are occasions when you will be fishing for squid and the water is very clear, this can at times be a very frustrating situation. The schools of squid can be easily seen, yet you will often struggle to catch them. In my opinion this is due to the fact that all prey is cautious and all predators precautious in their approach to ambush due to their venerability in such clear conditions. In such situations I use the predatory instinct in the squids biology to aid in their demise. I cast my jig fifty meters and let it sink, if I don't catch a squid on the jig's decent I retrieve the jig with haste for ten-meter bursts, then let it sink again, this movement imitates an injured and scared baitfish and the squid generally charge in and attack the jig instinctively. This technique is quite effective and will work more often than not when the squid are as I call them "Lookers". "

i have tried the techniques listed here and i still cant tempt the squid
i found a good spot which has quite a few squid.
i go down there after sunset and ussually catch 2 or 3. then after this the squid stop biting completely, even though i can still see them swimming around.
is that all i should expect each trip?

Other tricks are to "stay" the jig, then try dropping it suddenly or "dancing" it on the spot.

they start inking immediately after theyre hooked.
im fishing inside a marina were there is little current.
how can i try and minimise the inking?
or will they become untimid after a while and start hitting the jigs again?
