hey guys, do you where possibly i can catch some squid to use as live bait this time time of the year ? I was thinking somewhere between l-ahrax and comino, or else on Wied iz zurrieq side, use to be told that on that side they still catch squid in summer .... what do you think ?

yes my friend we catch squid during the night in west side on summer.

found out the best method here is to troll at a 1knt or less speed under the Hal Far (Ghar Hasan) cliffs you'll manage some for early bait.

We still catch during summer not in big quantities but they make the perfect bait

Placebo, so do you slow troll a squid jig or use some kind of other lure?

For those I think you need either bait strips or even better live bait on a slow troll. What weight are you using with your downrigger? Be sure to check out the Z-Wing 250/500 which has proved to be a lifesaver with downriggers in terms of getting your lures to the right depth without crazy big lead balls!

hi skip, i use the pater noster with 3 squid jigs but troll slowly. Sometimes this method is very effective especially when there is no current in water.

I learnt this method from MXlokk fisherman and is very effective. Although....i still notice that i do not catch as much as they do!

looks like there is something i need to improve.....am working on it!

yes tuna just letting the weight off the bottom...then at some time let the boat free again to settle speed at a very slow pace.

i can go around 1knt but i notice that MXlokk boats go even more slower and i think that's why they get better catches. As i told you i'm still catching up and learning the method.
