Squid Fishing Learn how to Catch On Jigs & Lures Tutorial Video.
Squid predominately hunt with their eyes , so when you fish for squid its best to find clean water in your region, combined with a reef bottom or broken ground. Depending on the tide and time of day depends on what type of lure you need to use. On a brighter day with clear water you should choose a lure with natural colours. Brown and Orange squid jigs are my preference in this situation. On a dark and cloudy day or if the water is murky I tend to use a lure with brighter colours such as yellow/green/pink. sounds easy right ? thats because it is .
I personally don’t get to technical. Squid feed near the bottom so you just need to get your jig as close to the bottom as you can. I think about how deep the water is where I’m are going to be fishing. There are no rules to selecting the right jig size. I have caught many big fish on small jigs and vice/versa. Personally I prefer bigger jigs around 3.5 jig size and I believe that its in the technique of the fisherman to get the jig to dart around close to the bottom and to be in the right spots, in the right times .
An Egi jig is just the Japanese name for a jigs they are the same jig . Expensive fishing jags made by Yo-zuri, Yamashita and Shimano Sephia work a treat, but I am yet to see a cheaper jig fail and for this reason I will predominately use cheaper no name jigs. . And if you want to purchase expensive jigs, buy Shimano. But it really comes down to your personal tastes and preferences.
