I just got into squid fishing from a friend. He's gone a few times but I don't think he knows what he is doing.
The squid I'll be going for are in WA state. They are just small opalescent or California market squid
Right now what I have is some generic pole I bought from Big 5. The length is 6 1/2 ft, line weight is 6-14lbs, and lure weight says 1/8-3/8oz.
I'm not exactly sure what all that means but it seems light enough for squid fishing, right?
Before posting, I looked online to see if I could find some basic information about what I could use for line, lures, and bait.
I think I want to go with fluorocarbon but am I supposed to replace what came with the reel or should I just use an "FG Knot" to tie the lines together?
Also, why would I choose to tie lines together rather than replacing what's on the spindle?
Thanks for your guys' help!
(maybe you guys could post pictures of your set ups I'd love to see them!!!)
