 Yep- been getting heaps of Arrow's the last few weeks.

Can't remember when Arrow's were this plentiful.

It's getting harder to catch a Southern squid lately.

I believe these are Loligo

Thu, 2020-04-23 22:24

I believe these are Loligo squid, slightly different to the Arrow squid that are caught out in deeper water. The wings arent as pointy as an Arrow. As mentioned above, seem to be very agressive, i had a pack follow up a snapper plastic around the D9 and 2 or 3 attaching themselves to it at a time

 i cooked up mine tonight and preferred the smaller southern cal's to be honest. Mind you, i was cooking it over a fire and it went from under done to burnt really quickly so i may have screwed the pooch there.
