Quick question.

Has anyone tried jigging for squid in North Wales?

I understand it's getting quite popular down south, but not so much in the North yet.

Squid fishing is very popular in NZ, especially with the Asian community, with specialist rods and lures.
The squid mostly caught here are the broad frill squid, but I have caught arrow squid from a boat. the most popular way is called Egging, using an imitation prawn which come in different sizes and colours, some with ultraviolet paints. the other way is to hang a prawn style jig under a float and just leave it.
fishing is done mostly in low light and at night, the water needs to be clean to clear, a bit of a problem in UK, and is best in the winter. Some people seem to find daytime fishing works OK
The squid hunt over weed beds for shrimps and small fish, and are mostly caught near the surface.

Try not to hook a giant squid, the ones that leave saucer sized sucker marks on sperm whales!
