Hiya Shane, i always take the fins off if i'm using whole squid as bait- imho it makes threading the hook through the body easier, makes wrapping with bait elastic easier & does'nt seem to wobble as much mid cast. Keep the fins for tipping any worm baits.
Skin wise i always remove it if fishing clear water but dont worry about it as much if i'm fishing night time or in coloured water.

I leave the fins on and don't bother skinning. I usually wrap the whole bait with elastic, then mount on the pennel or large single and then wrap a bit more elastic round to hold it on the hook.
