Humbling experience...I was fishing the 3 inch Mirror lenz squid jig by Youzuri. The squid would not commit! As soon as they got close they veered off. Most squid that attacked the jig attacked the wrong end, aiming for the feathers up front. Most hooked squid let go just as they cleared the surface. Also....as soon as you landed 1 squid, the school would leave as if they sensed danger.
Tried high low with a sinker. High low w/o...single jig. All on 6lb Flouro....I am haveing all kinds of trouble finding squid jigs smaller than 3" which may be the ticket.
Even tried tipping the jig with a piece of clam. So I drove 3 hrs, lost 2 squid jigs and came home with 9 puny squid!
Any tips you guys can share for when these things are this skittish would be appreciated...
Also....can they be Chummed?? I used to see loads of em in the Hudson Canyon as soon as the slop hit the water...bu that may have been more of a function of the lights. Was thinking of mixing cat food with sea water to make a slick.
At the end of the tide schoolie stripers were checking out the jigs.
