Ive seen this done, and would set the jags about 50cm or so apart........But squid will attack them 2cm apart if in the right mood!!
I would swivel them all separately as well!! Maybe have a fish teaser at the bottom, or top just to get them around!

SA - the land of the bigger fish. The fish on the east, measure the least, but if you head west, you'll be bringing in the best!!

I usually use tommies, gar or pilchards here in South Australia, although i know whiting are popular in other states..........
Any fish that occurs naturally in the area you are fishing would be good!! ;)

Hey Peter. Im not sure about mack as squid bait, but it might work - a strong smelling fish. As for rigging, it doesnt really matter. I usually use a pin jag with mine, as then you have a chance of catching a squid which hits it, but otherwise, just connect it to the bottom of the line, either tying it directly, or hooking a swivel through the mouth...........

Hi squidhead Have just seen your setup. l want one please. same as pete l live in the UK and started catching a few last year, more by accident whilst trolling for bass. Most of them are beasts, from about 10" long to about 30". Biggest weighed4.5kilo. Could you kindly help with a system that l could rig myself , be most grateful. As yet we have no regs, in fact no-one fishes for them. Regards Phil the fish
