Squid Jigs

Whether you want to catch them to use as bait, or to take them home for a feed, you'll need a squid jig if you want to catch a squid. Unlike moast fishing lures they do not have hooks with barbs. In fact they just have a series of spikes pointing back towards the top of the lure. When the squid strikes at these lures, they get tangled in the spikes. 

Catching squid is not as easy as it looks and there is a lot of skill that goes into getting them to have a go at your squid jig. A lot of Kingfish fishos in Sydney spend more time catching the squid for bait, than they do fishing for Kingys!

Although you can buy cheap squid jigs in supermarkets, you really need to spend as much as you can on these lures. The Cheaper ones do not fall horizontally, and considering how hard they are to catch you want to make sure that you have got the best gear to give you a chance of catching squid.

If you are fishing deep you can tie the jigs in paternoster configuration and just jig up and down. If you are fishing in shallower areas then you want to target areas containing kelp. Squid will always strike at the jig on the drop (which is why you need a good quality one with a natural action) so what you need to do is hop it and then let it drop to just above the kelp while winding in the slack.

It always pays off to have a selection of different coloured jigs and different sizes too. A good place to start is a natural coloured one in a 2.5 size.
