Some questions Robin

Has anyone ever livebaited a squid? I'd think the Bass are quite keen on them right now.

Why can't they be hooked on a normal hook. Is it worth trying small trebles?

What time were your Bass bites. About 9.00-10.00?

thanks

Crikey. ..... Ok, IMHO even a very big bass would be intimidated by 3 or 4lb of sucker enabled tube with a very big beak. More likely to catch Dolphin or Sperm Whale.
They just dont get hooked on a normal hook, unless you are very lucky. I reckon about one in fifty maybe. And then you would have to drop net it. I've done it with cuttlefish, but not with squid. I've prevously tried the trebles for the cuttles, with prawns as bait, with some success. But what we eally need, is a wire bait spike with the squid pins at the bottom. Then we could utilise prawns and pouting, and get just as many cuttles.
Bass, probably was, if you mean p.m.

Your welcome.....:)
