hi,

please let us know what squid beaks and/or ink has done to you and if you have worked out a safer way of catching them!

I have been bitten by a cuttlefish, it HURT, i thought it was funny having it crawl on my hand until it took a bite! :th :)

I used the head as a snapper bait the next day and caught a 6.5kg snapper so i was wrapped :th

sure was Glen, i was wrapped! :th

Froglet although not a bite, the suckers on arrow squid tentacles can put some serious scratches on the tops of your hand if not handled correctly :) :th .

i now grab arrows by the tip of their hood and dump them in a bucket before they get a chance to wrap any tentacles around my hands :th

Ive never been bitten but Ive copped a ripper of an ink squirt straight up the trouser leg as I was pulling up a nice 3 kilo specimen on St Leonards pier he was huge and just as I got his head up out the water he let rip
I was fishing the landing part of the pier which meant I was alot closer to the surface of the water had I been fishing else where and he managed a full squirt which left me to go back to the car to clean up.
A good squid fisho always takes a change of clothes but yet again a good squid fisho shouldnt get sprayed LOL

one day 2 years ago i was squid fishing at greencape N.S.W. and i caught a squid about 1.5-2kg. i brought it in by hand and was surprised to see there was no ink, i thought it must have used it all on the jigg. i was about to put it in the bucket when whoosh ink everywhere!!! luckily i didnt get too much on me but im sure it gave people a good place to go squid fishing as there was ink all over the rocks :P

hi poodge, where abouts at green cape did you catch the squid? i have been there once a long time ago and have always been keen to go back again! It did not occur to me to try for squid at the time....we were trying to catch tuna...none were actually caught but there was lots of pretty rock fish, wrasse etc to keep us occupied. :P

i ve got squirted once when i was squiding with a hand wheel. i reeled it back really slowly and even paused for a while to let it empty its ink, but it still managed to get me all over. I guess it was meant to happen with hand wheel :ink
