Night squid fishing is one of the attractive entertainment activities that cannot be missed during the trip. Here are some instructions on how to fish squid at night to help you gain more useful experience and improve fishing squid performance.
For squid fishing, you should use fake bait originating from Japan because it is manufactured according to standards and is very sensitive to squid. On the other hand, the reflective layer on the Japanese bait is very durable and bright to attract squid. With squid, we should choose a bait with a shrimp shape that will be more attractive to squid.
In order to improve performance, you need to be careful in choosing tools for squid fishing such as fishing rod bait. Most use fake bait, reels and bamboo fishing rods about 1m – 1.5m long for squid fishing.
The lure is designed in fish shape and shrimp shape. Depending on the case, choose a fake bait to fish more effectively.
For example, if you see squid floating on the water, it is possible to use a fish-shaped lure that will make it easier to catch the squid because it is light and floats on the water.
Normally, squid often hide on the seabed, needing a smaller and heavier bait, the shrimp-shaped lure is the most suitable.
Squid Jig bait has a typical weight of about 20-25 grams. There are types of 45, 70 grams specializing in deep water fishing. When buying light bait that requires deep fishing and strong water, people often add lead to the lure.
It is advisable to carry several baits of different weights, the weight of which determines how the prey moves through the water column.
If fishing is shallow, clear water, people often choose a small prey with a slow sinking speed, this will help keep the Jig in front of the hungry squid. When fishing in deeper areas, use heavier bait, which sinks faster, to keep the bait near the bottom, i.e. in the battle zone, for longer.
In terms of color, just like the principle of choosing bait in lure fishing, use dark, dark colors when the ambient light is weak and bright colors, especially white and clear white for the day. However, the tool box should have many different colors because the ink changes eating habits very quickly.
How to Choose a Fishing Machine and Squid Fishing Line
Mainly using spinning fishing gear Daiwa machine size 2000 to 2500, or Shimano 2500-3000. This technique recommends setting the braking level as loosely as possible because the jerk is only at the tip of the tentacle, but the dynamics of the Squid’s body are not favorable for being pulled towards the tentacles, pulling hard can cause damage tear them.
Squid Fishing Technique
Squid fishing to be effective also requires technique. First, you should practice throwing the bait away and not affecting the people around, then release the line until the bait hits the seabed, the line slacks.
You collect the charge for 1 round, then every 3 seconds, it jerks back once. Just like that, until you feel the line is heavy like hooking to something, then slowly, evenly wind the wire, until the ink comes out of the water. The stage of pulling the rope up requires calm, there are many people who have caught squid but lost it due to too much urgency.
In the case that you have been sitting and dropping bait for 15 minutes but still haven’t caught any “squid baby”, don’t be discouraged but change another location and continue patiently. Squid fishing is not easy, but when you persist in catching one, it feels great!
The Best Time for Squid Fishing
The most ideal time for squid fishing is the dry season, that is, from November to April of the solar calendar. You should not go fishing on the night of the full moon, especially on a day with big waves because you yourself will not be able to withstand the violent movement of the sea.
Better yet, on a day when you look out at the sea and see many small fishing boats with blue or red lights that day, there will be a lot of ink.
