What are some methods to use for squiding at night near bridges etc? Does the normal prawn style jig work the same as in the daytime? Thanks :)

Welcome Roy, :)

A Prawn style jig is not very effective during night time because squid cannot see at night but if you use a baited jig with whiting or pilchard etc, the squid are attracted to these because they can smell the fish, but can't smell the artificial jig! I hope that answers your question!

We hope you join as a member to this fantastic squidfish site!!! :) :)

hi roy,

is the bridge where you are fishing well lit with artificial lights? if so, then prawn jigs will work.

welcome aboard,

cheers, glen :)

I will argue with that point just a bit. We generally like to use glow in the dark squid jigs, and the squid can quite easily see those, day or night. Squid have quite good eye sight, as well.

I think the glow in the dark jigs work better, but aren't required.

Do the ones that you have been using glow??

REALLY??? I have always considered the glow in the dark jigs to be standard. That is mostly what I sell, as most people don't have interest in ones that don't glow in the dark. So most of the ones in shops there don't glow?

at night time i have a rig set up with a jag on the end, and a fixed float about 50cm up the line

most people just leave them sitting in the water with a float but i have had nothing but good luck slowly reeling it in witht he float attached!

the squids love it

did I hear you say Squid at night? near bridges?
the big one is over 80cm tube and the rest slightly smaller around 60Cm. all caught on size2 jigs and smaller :)

Just drop by to ask a question. Are Squid Jigs of Size 3.0 too big to be used on Kelongs ?

I usually uses Size 2.5 but have caught many using Size 3.0 as well.

However, my dad said that it's too big. what do you ppl think ?

I would say you'd have more success on a smaller jig but the 3.0 should be fine.
