Ps. I have never tasted arrows....what are they like?

I find the arrows a bit tougher and not as "sweet" as the couthern calamari. Next time you catch one try it and see if you like it

and isnt even a good bait
Watch out when you catch an arrow because the buggers bite and can bend backwards to try and take a nip at you

i find it a bit hit and miss when it comes to tenderness and that goes for both calamari and arrows, i always cook them the same way for the same amount of time but sometimes they'll be soft and sometimes tough
when my parents go to the fishmarket to buy calamari to eat they always look for small ones and they end up being soft. maybe tenderness is size related?

I caught a small arrow squid, about 20cm, cooked it in a batter in shallow oil, and it was sweet as hell. had to add a bit of salt to balance the flavor.
I caught a large southern calamari squid last night, havent cooked it yet but i didnt think it can be as sweet. but people tell me that southern calamari are much better eating than arrow squids? I think it could well be related to size.
Southern calamari go for a much higher price than arrow squid at the local fish market. but the strange thing is they only stock small squid?? maybe people already know that taste is related to size.
I have been catching more large squid than small.. 60cm+

Squids are larger in size than Calamaris. When you see both, you can make out the difference easily. Squids have pointed small flaps on the narrow end of the bodies. These resemble arrows. A calamari has long triangular wing-like flaps on either sides of the body.
Hope that helps.
