Caught my first squid on a lure today, now encouraged to give it a further go...
Out on the wrecks tomorrow, hopefully get something nice for dinner 🐟

Well done Johnny.
Was it intentional or a happy accident?
Good luck tomorrow, how far are you going out?

Wrecking was tough yesterday, tried 5 and nothing but pout. Unpleasant sea as well, then anchored at Deans Elbow and caught thornies, smoothound and mackerel. Thought I might get an early cod 😊
Donít think I will bother burning the fuel for the wrecks again.
Will go out tomorrow to try for plaice once more...
Good luckk if you are out too.

That would make sense, they hang out over rocks. I have caught them east of Medmery bank in the deep gully.

Not where I was expecting. Maybe on his way to the wreck?

I think I might try over the rough ground around the horses tail next.
Any other ideas, quite enjoying the challenge...

Given the price of squid for bait - if you hit the mother load you could make a fortune." Rodney tomorrow we could be millionaires !"

Assume this is in daylight. My understanding is that squid are attracted to light so a massive light bulb over the stern at night time with a squid jig could be the ticket!

PS catching loads of nice plaice on the charter up to the east drifting with odd brill but no turbot.

Found 'um! Not big but my first actually targeting them. I could get into this! Over rocks in Hayling bay so I might try an evening sesh when the tide permits.

That squid was the most delicious ever. Meaty, soft and tasty. Met its end in a paella - my foolproof recipe here:  http://arfordbooks.co.uk/2018/09/14/fairly-painless-paella/" rel="nofollow - http://arfordbooks.co.uk/2018/09/14/fairly-painless-paella/

Looks very nice! Shame we canít catch the langoustines in the Solent as well!

You can catch them in Sainsburys in the freezer section - Finest or something. Not at all bad for frozen.

Looks very nice, most of the Squid I normally do are stuffed with Lug and crab cart and look nothing like that even the fish don't like them Lol

OK so on the subject of cooking squid, I tried a http://arfordbooks.co.uk/2018/09/10/totally-awesome-seafood-feast/" rel="nofollow - seafood roast with the rest of the langoustines. Sqids are hasselbacked and stuffed. Less bother than it looks:

As long as it hasn't been frozen too many times before. I even have a specific http://www.boat-angling.co.uk/eat-your-bait-or-salt-and-pepper-squid/" rel="nofollow - bait recipe for humans

We were out today and had a group of rod hires onboard. Half of the group had never fished before.
The youngster on-board out-fished everyone else.
Rays, Eels, Dogs, Smoothounds, Scad, mackerel, Bream...

Reason for mentioning today and the catch?

He also caught a Squid on Sabikis.... :-)

But I remembered this page and suggested they kept it and looked up a recipe for Squid, which is exactly what they intend to do. :-)

Maybe prior to this page I would have said, cut it up for bait.
