This time of the year it is not rare to catch squides over 1 kg even in shallow waters.

During the sicc season around 8 years ago me and my father caught 5 on the tmilla.  They attacked the sicca and then we simply copped them or bil gang. they were all 900 grams to 1000 grams. 

Two years ago at ta Prexxa there was no sign of squid.  all of a sugged I felt a monstrous pull.  It was one of 1.6 kg.  The only catch that night.  Well enough.

Additionally I must say that it is common to find squids nearer to the land in the winter time.

it is in fact king, those are jumbo squids if not mistaken. Their water temperature is hotter if i am not mistaken and it plays an important part for squid

plus, they have richer seas and don't overfish them-lower population densities than malta. for every 1 angler in a shore line at australia  there are 45-50 anglers fishing in malta
