A few Q's
What are (if any) best months for squid?
Hot spots around the Broadwater Gold Coast in a boat?
Lights? Do you need them to attract them?
I'm new to Squidding and appreciate any help.
As I'm new to squidding too I can only tell you what I think I know or have heard. I have heard that the best months are the summer months. But they are caught all year round in the southeast at least. as for hot spots in Broadwater I don't know but if you can find your own secret one you wont have to share!
The best way to find your spot for night fishing is simply try somewhere where there is light. Try at night when the water is clear and see if any squid follow your lure. Sometimes they hang out in schools just under the jetty or in darker places close to the light. Another give away is the squid ink left behind from other anglers. So if you wan't your spot to be hush hush all yours dont leave any ink behind. Also try the shallow water first you will be surprised that is usually where I find them (2 too 3 foot of water). Otherwise during the day I have caught them over weed beds in the bay etc. I wish to try it with a light also at night in the bay.
Good luck! Tell me your secret spot when you find it, or Ill swap you one
Just realised this was a really old post...hrmmm...but after that effort i might aswell post it if anyone else wants to read! Enjoy your squids!
