Squid Jigging in Winter?.

Wed Dec 30, 2020 4:00 pm

Hi lads,

I've just seen a video by SMASH fishing on youtube where he was jigging for squid this week, although he is based in Guernsey it got me wondering if it's possible to catch them here too in winter? does anybody know?

Cheers
Gonzo

Don't know but would like to find out
Know that they are caught from boat when targeted from a few places in Donegal Bay but that's about it
Would love to know somewhere to catch them from the shore, just don't think anyone has tried too hard!

Apparently the pier in skerries can be good for squid jigging at night

I've heard that and tried in the summer, just wondering if it's only a summer thing though? would there still be any about this time of year?

I had one a long time ago on feathers just off the pier in skerries around September I think.

Winter is best for them as far as I’m aware

I’ve had a few squid from skerries over the years,September was best .but I’m sure they are there in the winter the only problem is getting calm weather and clear water during the winter ,I’ve had some success using squid pins with a shrimp or sprat /sand eel secured with elastic
