Squid is best caught using a squid jig. All Year round.
Squid lives just on the edges of reefs and can also hide in the long sea grass in all depths of water.
What Tackle Do You Need To Catch Squid?
Squid Jigs are the best – they come in the shape of a prawn (shrimp) or a small fish and are designed with barbless hooks at the tail end of the jig.
Jig Sizes sizes are measured by the speed at which they descend per second.
The jig body can be broken down into three color layers – the base, the tape, and the cloth.
The base or body of the gig is usually transparent and has UV properties that help to create a more realistic look in deep water.
The transparent plastics also allows manufacturers to add different color schemes without dealing with color clashing.
The tape creates reflection and silhouetting – and different color tape is used for different conditions.
Certain colors are used in different amounts of ambient light – pink, dark red and purple are used during overcast weather, or at dawn and dusk.
Whereas silver and gold are great colors for full light.
Rainbow colors are used in all conditions.
