Its that magical time again when giant Humboldt squid attack your line like its the only thing they were created for. Its so much fun, you really should try it if you haven’t already.
I don’t mess around with a 40 pound set up when I fish them. I used to but I don’t anymore. Now I bring it up to 60 or 80 pound and its just as fun with much less back problem.
Catching giant Humboldt squid is a fun time and I highly recommend you getting out there soon and fishing them, you will love it! Don’t fall overboard when the squid are biting, they are voracious eaters, even resorting to cannibalism!
You are going to need some squid jigs for the event. They have multiple barbs on them and I usually use glow and weighted, it just makes it easier for me. Appropriate squid jigs can be found here : Giant Humboldt Squid Jigs
