Hi Lydon – Fortuna is very correct but I will give you more specifics about this fishing method. When we troll with lixka for Lampuki/ Plamti and Kubrit we always use fresh kalamar, or if not available "siccia".
So.....Get hold of a newly caught squid, decent size, peel off the skin from its body, clean the inside well and cut the body from one side only. Lay it very flat then cut into strips of about 1 inch x 3 inches. Wrap these,  as a group and flat, around by cling film, place in the fridge for use the next morning. You need a leader at the end of your line which must have a medium sized hook and an adjustable smaller hook a few inches further up. Hook one end of the "kalamar strip" to the large hook (preferably the wider part if you do not cut them perfectly straight) and the other end to the small hook. Important that before you put the bait to sea the hooked kalamar strip/bait has to be perfectly straight, otherwise it will screw up your line by twisting and turning. It's a patient process but be sure if the fish are there they will go for it like hungry dogs! Using a cigar type 100gm lead weight a few meters from the leader does help. We have used this method for many years. It is really effective and we have caught loads of Lampuki/ Plamti and Kubrit around the reefs off the Freeport and Munxar..plus of course around the fish farms,the big Plamti just cannot resist the kalamar...provided that fish are around cos I hear from my overseas post that not much is being landed these days and its pretty poor at the moment. I hope the above details are of assistance to you...good luck mate!

a small hint when cuting the kalamr, i usually find its back bone which is a feather like plastic thing and cut gently on it, thats the middle point of it and it opens neatly. Thats my style but..

Heqq only good for spreading butter otherwise mate  :) although sharpening them "a bit" makes alot of sense too,my bait knife is way too sharp..tipo one slip = stitches!!

u think i havnt cut myself with mine Martin...... but a sharp knife is better than a blunt one...

Im sure you have mate and yes your right absolutley right,there is nothing more useless than a blunt knife! but mine is way too sharp just for cutting bait tbh and its not as if i sharpen it continously (not even once tbh!!) and it certainly has had alot of use and abuse.
