Some cephalopods fishing information
A relatively simple fishing and which allows to practice his passion when the fish leaves the edge ahead of the winter. Squid or cuttlefish lure fishing allows to find a few sensations before putting his season on standby!
During the autumn and the approach of winter, when water is cooled, benches of cephalopods joined the coast and particularly the ports in order to hunt for fish fodder, it is an opportunity to get out his rod to lure to battle it out.
If you start, look for tasks of inks on the rocks, docks, or dikes. Did you spot anything? Don’t worry, direct you to a dock or a dam made of natural RIPRAP with immediate depth and or the current is low. It’s the ideal playground for the squid, cuttlefish when it will not be against a sandy background!
Choice of material for the squid fishing
Equipment used for fishing lure cuttlefish (or artificial baits defined on AndrewFishing) is close to see almost identical to your versatile set of fishing to a predator.
It’s a simple fishing when the Predator is active, some do not hesitate to say that everything works for cephalopods as long as they are there! However, with the development of this market, especially in the Japan, we arrive in France of many specialized material often called Eging. Mainly ranges of rods especially designed for this technique with a quick action and a very high resonance but don’t worry, for starters and have some sensations, your set will suffice!
Choose a light set, a versatile rod of 10 / 40gr will be perfect. She must be able to easily propel decoys little leaded at great distances, fishing requires. Add to this rod a size reel 2,000 to 2,500, topped with a braid of 10 to 15/100 and go… Finally, you have to choose your jig!
With strong infatuation for this technique, the manufacturers were very quick surf on the wave and it starts to be very hard to make a choice! There are all price, all colors, all sizes and many different brands. However the Japanese stand out and are ahead in the field. You will find simple models with traditional colors and glow or reacting to the UV more complex models!
Grab a choice of color and weight, this will allow you to fish in all conditions and find the color that makes the day fly J. To guide you a bit, here are a few small principles I apply:
- Natural colours for fishing in broad daylight
- Mat colours, pink and orange
- Dark colors at night, violet for example
- Cephalopods are shy, try the phosphorescent and UV, this may be a plus and trigger violent attacks.
For my part jigs of Yamashita and Yo zuri brands really have a head start on other brands, unfortunately their price is more important, which aren’t so not to everyone. A good value for money seems Flashmer jigs that belle made regular.
Animation for the squid lure fishing
Nothing is fixed, the squid fishing is full of surprises! What works one day won’t necessarily the next day, the harder is to find the squid and what triggered the attack. You must be able to identify easily to how deep the attack this product because the squid or cuttlefish that rides around in a bench.
One of the animations for the squid fishing is to advance your jig on the merits by all small zippers, the jig will realize little bond.
The most well-known technique is the Ben bachi, an aggressive technique which is to start, let down his jigging on the bottom and hit several big shots of scion in a row then longer or shorter pause! Repeated animation as many times as necessary.
It is there so no rule to find the good animation (slow or fast) the right depth and the right conditions weather (little current, no rain and very little wind)
Tips for fishing cephalopods
- Night fishing is much more productive
- Use a braid multicolor to identify the attack zone more easily
- Don’t leave without net
- Jigs are classified by a number 2, etc. up to 4.5 2.5 this represents many parameter such as its size, its weight and its rate of descent, especially NOT NEGLECT!
1.5 size: 4.5 cm in length to about 3 gr, rate of descent = 9 seconds/meter
Size 2: 6 cm long for about 6 gr, descent speed = 8 seconds/meter
Size 2.5: 10 cm long for about 10 gr, descent speed = 4 seconds/meter
Size 3: 11.5 cm in length to about 15 gr, rate of descent = 3,5 seconds/meter
Size 3.5: 13 cm in length to about 20 gr, rate of descent = 3 seconds/meter
Size 4: 14.5 cm in length to about 24 gr, descent speed = 2.7 seconds/meter
4.5 size: 16 cm long for about 33 gr, rate of descent = 2.2 seconds/meter
- Hold time of descent used jigging and reached inside then in the next shot you do the same thing by removing two or three seconds etc etc in order to find the depth of the first attack!
- Use clothes that do not fear, the ink jets are frequent.
- The additives in spray are a plus
- If you use the UV jigs get a UV lamp to recharge the onboard water!
- Think of your brake control.
