  1. So it looks like they might be able to at least, detect sound. They are known to be very curious, so I can not see why it would not help. https://www.livescience.com/11707-squid-hear-itos-motion-ocean.html#:~:text=Squid can hear%2C scientists have,motion generated by sound waves.&text=Squid have two sac-like,the base of their brains.
  2. I keep reading how whiting prefer fresh squid, just how fussy can they be. I have kept Squid in the freezer for months and still tasted pretty good to me.
  3. I don't think this is a photo, I think its a artists sketch. Makes me wonder if the spool really holds that little line, would be good to see an actual photo, or the specs.
  4. When I was a lad my dad kept the worms in an old copper, that use to be used for heating water, it was full of horse poop and table scraps, and had a couple of hessian sacks on the top, when ever we wanted worms, you just wet the sacks, the next day you lifted the sacks and there were hundred, between the sack and the dirt at the top, he swore by tiger worms.
  5. What squid could possible resist this? Squid have been eating things that look like this for over 200 million years.
  6. Thanks MAH, I ordered both of theses yesterday and 8 other, I am keen on trying the KG whiting and the sand whiting, Squid have been around since the Jurassic I figure by now they must know what the fish they eat look like, I don't hear a lot of people using them, every one is mad on pink.
  7. Sounds fishy to me!
  8. I mostly buy 3 or 3.5 for fishing from the boat and a few 2.5 for shallow water, I notice RUi have 4s, they don't put the sink rate on the site, but I presume they sink faster and for stronger current? I was thinking of getting a few for deeper water. I'm sometimes in 6 to 8 metres.
  9. Thanks MAH That is very helpful information. Have you given the KG and sand Whiting ones a go? They are the fish I target, while I am squiding, seems to make sense to use what they are use to eating.
  10. Hi any one using the Rui squid jigs? I normally buy the Yamashita jigs, but was thinking of trying the Rui. They have a few natural ones I am interested in, like the KG Whiting and the sand whiting ones.
  11. Those hard bits are Denticles, there small tooth like serrations, that help them hang on to things. All squid have them.
  12. The big question now is, has anyone tried them? And can you catch squid on them, I think if you could cast them around bait fish they may be good, or if squid were following lures.
  13. These were the only actual lures I could find that had a squid jag. I know the critics will say why isn't every one using them, but 40 years ago they said that about anything that did not have a dead fish tied on it. At least it might be a bit of fun lure.html
  14. This is what I was thinking too. Where did you buy the jags from?
