Hi,
    I've been searching around the threads to see if i can find the info i need, but i can't seem to find it. Actually what i need to know is, when you go by boat for squid fishing, do you keep the light on while fishing or do you just attract with the light then switch it off? haven't managed to get one yet but i'm trying!

leave it on......... if you see a squid at the surface not wanting to enter the light, switch off the light.

I would make a quick shade (even a piece of cardboard) and keep the side of the boat in the shade, when squid approaches Bingo u net it..........if u switch off completely u wont  see the squid but he will see u for sure......what u think Rob

Ehhhh Shanook, using a net is cheating and old fashioned....you know that there are "labbar" around and that is what should be used. Veru ta when we were young we used to net them...immma those days are long gone Tony hi. Printers use very thin s/steel sheeting, make a shade out of this, you shd get it for free from any decent stamperia.

tooooooooo true mate but nowadays whatever comes along as long as it is of decent size u get it no matter how .........I like to fish for Kalamari but i like to eat them even better...especially as soon as I arrive home cold...u cut it in rings, a shallow fry, a glass of red wine and then u go to sleep HAPPY........
I like the printers S/Sheet I had forgotten all about those....and if they are not biting u read the sheet LOL

i don't know ton....... so far it happened to me 3 times...... that a squid stays outside the light, but i see him/her there..... twice at sea and once on land..... if your lure is in the light.... the squid won't give a f*** about you, he/she'll be 100%, no, 1000% focused on the lure...... and as soon as the light is out..... you won't count to 3 before getting a pull! this happened once with SOJ last April, another time some years back on our kajjik and around 2 years ago at sirens where a monster squid of the 1kg plus ones squeezed himself in the little dark between the light and the pier..... i noticed his silouette in the dark and saw his 'bronki' streching out to reach the lure of the rod i had as standby on the floor without getting himself in the beam...... as soon as i turned off the light....... bam, he was hooked......... all in  a second, i just loosened the crocodile clip and grabbed rod simultanousley....

Robby017, I guess what you have to say to this gentleman could easily be shared with the rest of the forum.  This is not the forum spirit we so much speak about.  Tongue

Robby017, nahseb li ghandek tghid lil das-sinjur jista facilment jinghdd hawn halli jgawdi minnhu kullhadd.  Il-mod li bih qed tirranguna mhuiex parti mill-ispirtu li nipprattikaw fuq il-forum  Tongue
