I had been having problems landing cuttle fish recently, I went into the Art of fishing to get me a slightly heaver Squid Jig. Jo Pointed me over to the fish League Squid jigs he lightest being 10g. Speaking to some people about squid jigs there seems to be a bit of confession with the info on the box. mine states 2.5 but this is not the casting weight.
I pulled out the Nories Jighead snapper rock fish bottom, this is a solidtip jigging rod but also doubles up nicely for a LRF rod with a heap of power.
Mike Sullavan was already fishing and landing Squid & cuttle.
I decided to have a try for wee fish and first cast was rewarded with a decent smelt, second cast a Polock & third cast a Poor cod. The makings of a good night you would think???? sadly it wasn’t.
“When the Squid are on the go the Fishing is Slow”
I switched over to my new Fish League jig and the takes began, but could I land them…… meanwhile Mike was swinging the cuttle about like an Olympic sport.
I decided to pull out the Majorcraft L600 six meter telescopic landing net, and with the help of Frankie my first Squid of the year was landed. Big un an all.
