Squid reports have been good over the last few weeks, especially during the periods of low rain. Most regular piers and locations fishing well. Cowes local, Joe, gave us a report that San Remo pier was fishing well for Squid around slack water during the week. His best jig was a size Pink 2.5 Yakamito.
Customer David took his kids down to Sorrento over the weekend and had a fish off the pier for Squid. He caught 5 Squid all on his ‘go-to’ jig, his Harimitsu 2.5 in VE22-EBR.
Staff member Harley fished Flinders pier targeting Squid and did well, with Squid just over a kilo hitting the planks of the pier. Yamashita Live shallow 3.5 in RDBRAR and basic 3.0 in NSBG were the jigs that caught all his Squid.
Customers Ky and Ryan fished from the rocks along Mt Martha to catch Squid, early in the morning being best. Yamashita jigs in natural colours fished well along the rocks.
Staff member Dylan fished with a mate around Blairgowrie Yacht Squadron after work to catch 7 nice Squid up to 500g. Yamashita Naory 1.8B was the best jigs for the smaller Squid, while size 3.0 BLGKO caught the other Squid.
Tran fished from the little pier at Mornington well into the night after the summer crowds died off, and that is when he caught his Squid. He ended up with 8 Squid in 2hours. The only jig that worked was his Sutte-R Yamashita in the Grass Whiting pattern.
Staff member Dylan had an afternoon fish around Mornington chasing Squid and Flatties for a feed. The Squid around Mornington north are in good numbers but in such shallow water, they can be a bit cautious. Longer leaders and small, natural jig presentations will catch more over these clear weedbeeds. Ecogear Flashmax in F10CG worked well during the afternoon sun.
