Hi all,

Not sure if this is in the right forum so apologies if not
Just looking to see if anyone has had any luck with catching squid from the rocks in East Cape.
Last time I went livebaits were very scarce even after some large burley bombs going in, with kahawai only showing one day out of 3 and even then only a few.
Was thinking of using a squid jig and then using a squid instead, I know from Aussie anglers they have good results with a live squid.

I've never seen one here but that doesn't necessarily mean they aren't there, as at home my livebaits often get harassed by squid.

Also would it be safe to say collecting them while still dark would be best?

Thanks all

Hay guys we fish east cape every year have some vids using squid outtherdoingit /youtube some days they like squid some days they only into lures, skippy always gets bites , one of my favs is what we call a lollie pop is cut squid body of and cut half a pilchard put it in the body and hool and cotton on that way they get to flavours haha. Best bet is we take variety of bait e.g squid pilchards and skippy and pipers kingi love piper bait and see whats biting ay

Cheers Onlanders fishing

I think he was asking about using live squid caught off the rocks there as livebait.
