USING STINKY PINK SQUID "IKA"!
In this video i share how i set-up my shore/surf casting rig & how i prepare my baits. Also my choice in equipment used as well. When i do fish other areas i sometimes alter my techniques by lengthening or shorting the lead line and/or baited leader lines to varying the baits used to switching between monofilament & braided lines. I do stick with circle hooks like BKN to Mutsu. This comes from understanding the areas you fish in. Over time by trial & error you'll learn what works the best for you.
Yes, i love using old frozen stink squid packed in rock salt. I wait until the outer skin turns pink before i use them. In the water it puts out a tremendous "odor trail" that fresh squid can't match (in my humble opinion). The rock salt toughens the squid so it doesn't break apart. I also double the thickness & tie the squid to the hook's eys using dental thread before casting. This way i don't have to check on my baits often & i can put muscle into my casts to get my baits out farther without the squid ripping-off.
