How effective is squid for bass?

Im planning on checking out a mark ive been thinking about for a while, a nice gulley with kelp eather side that go's deep when the tide is mid to high flow.

the water floods from the right into a large kelp/silt hollow to the left and it look a good feeding/holding ground.

plan on using large baits (squid) on a pulley pennel in the hollow and ledgering some lug/peeler around the kelp.

im hoping the squid scent will bring fish in, as when the tide turns...a large vortex is created in the surronding area. :g:

its towards the top of the bristol channel and the water is heavily discolored

cheers, al :)

Hi matey Squid is a very good bait for bass and many other species, presented on a flowing trace (pennel) sit it out and the fish will come along. i have seen a few caught on squid around the gower and storm beaches, sometimes stuffing the umbrella with smelly baits and tie the end works pretty darn well.

LoL... if it is the same place we are both thinking off (not black-rock), never seen anyone fish it :g:
so its eather very good but no-ones tried, or its pants :schmoll:

heading down saturday for an hour if you fancy it, just p.m if free.

Cheers jonboy ;)...

i tried the stuffed squid thing over the winter for cod with zero success... used slightly (nearly raw) mussels and raw prawn, but zippo!
fancy trying just whole squid to see what happens.

gonna just take the one rod and travel light this time, so try a free flowing ledger with a pennel on the end and maybe a pear lead, let it drift right into the catchment area.

see what happens!?

Cheers for the pointers, al

squid/cuttle is a good all round bait for bass, but a deadly bait for bass at the right times of year .
for example right know around the solent the cuttle fish are dieing off and cuttle strips are a deadly bait for a 3-6 weeks then later in the year it picks up again in oct-nov for winter run of squid when squid becomes the dady of baits
the same will happen every where, just the time varies betwwen place to place
good luck

cheers monkeynuts ;)

im doing a fair bit of reading into what fish feed on, and will be looking into seasons and venu's now.

the wrong bait in the right spot isnt much use somtimes, but you can get lucky.

excellent pointer!
