Hi Where is the best place to get box's of squid? I know I could go to a whole sale place to get big amounts but I dont have the storage space. I am just after the small 1lb packs

Cheers

Chris

I get mine at a local chinese supermarket (well it's more of a small shop). It's Fairly cheap too.

Pretty well every tackle shop sells frozen squid, but some of it is pretty ropey. The unwashed stuff is best, buy it in bulk and split it into smaller packs. But if you have to buy pound boxes, try to get it from a shop selling it for human consumption. The quality is likely (but not guaranteed) to be better.

I get mine from Seewoo chinese supermarket - £1.85 for a 1lb box - actually pretty tempted to clean, dress, season and try it on the barbecue sometime!!!

I believe that if you buy it from a tackle shop it attracts VAT as it's bait. Buy the same thing from a supermarket/fish monger and it's classed as food and is exempt from VAT. That's one of the reasons it's more expensive in tackle shops.
