Regulations in many fishing areas stipulate that no more than four lures may be used simultaneously. This leads anglers to “gang-tie” multiple jigs to their main line, optimizing their chances of a successful catch. An excellent example of this is a comprehensive set of 10 squid jigs, conveniently packed in a zipped carry case for ease of transport. Each jig is equipped with a Squid Attraction Light, a powerful 18 watt 12 volt LED, ensuring visibility and allure underwater.
These jigs are not just visually appealing; they are crafted to perform. Yamashita squid jigs are notably effective in catching Squid, Cuttlefish, and small Octopus. The key to their success lies in their design and build, making them ideal for use with both lighter lure rods and specific squid rods. When fishing conditions are challenging, having a proper egi rod becomes crucial to detect the subtle strikes of a squid.
In addition to size and design, it’s vital to have a variety of jigs available. Squid can often show a preference for a specific jig during a fishing session. This preference can vary based on location, making it wise to have a range of sizes, colours, and weights at your disposal. Handmade in Spain by professional fishermen, these jigs feature handcraft sharp hooks, ideal for squid fishing. Additional weights and rattles can also be added to the jigs to enhance their appeal.
Legalities also play a part in squid fishing. It’s permissible to use up to four jigs on a single line, a forage fish dip net, or a hand dip net for catching squid. This method is particularly effective when fishing from rocks, but it also works well when drifting in a boat. The versatility of these jigs makes them suitable for various fishing environments, ensuring a successful and enjoyable squid fishing experience.
