I was beginning to be a non believer of tauranga harbour squids having tried a few times unsucessfully, however an event this morning changed my mind.

Those look like arrow squid? if you plan on eating them beware they can carry parasites. Broad squid that we get up in auckland dont seem to

Far out. I have spent countless hours chasing those slimly fu*kers and I have spent well over $500 in gear trying to target them and I have absolutely nothing to show for my results. If I were you, I would buy a lotto ticket, or a 100.

I caught my first squid this morning at Salisbury wharf with my castnet. I just saw it sitting in the shallows and threw the net over it and caught it

Haha excellent, well I'm glad you found a good spot. I'm also glad that they're actually out there! I hope that's a sign of better things to come. I'll keep trying now.
