Hello brolly Just like jrlrees we caught them by mistake on the atlas rose out of fishguard many years ago. mine weighed in at 2lb 8oz and tommy buttericks weighed in at 4lb.In all the years fishing they are the only two I,ve seen.
Off aberthaw last year one of the boys landed a cuttlefish when a codling he had hooked got ripped to bits by it.
ive caught a squid like the 1 jrees has got but mine was alot smaller had it on mackie also had a octopus on the boat before. apprently you can get these speacil spinners 2 target squid but ive never tried them
My brother in law fishing with his works got octopussied out on one occasion after 14 of them hit the deck again down fishguard they moved and caught more so the next move was a big one
they then got on with there fishing again.
You boys need squid jigs.
Shaped like a prawn with two+ rows of umbrella-like needles.
Fish over sand rather than weed, the squid(cuttle) grabs hold and the needles hold him on a steady retrieve.
Watch out for the ink!
