Bigger squid?


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I've finally cracked the night fishing squid code, managing 7 and 5 in 2 1-hour sessions at Northbridge and Balmoral wharf.

There does not seem to be much catch size difference between the 2 places though, even though the first is shallow and the other much deeper.

So where would you look if you wanted to target big squid?

If you're land-based, off the ocean rocks.

Try find a sheltered spot or two, with little to no swell, where you can cast into kelp and boulders.

Rig relatively heavy, keep your jig moving and fish the tide changes.

In my limited experience I've found that the above situation produces much bigger squid on average than those from the harbour wharves at night.

Hope that helps.
