I'm looking for the artificial prawn squid jiggers. I know you can order them online but I would rather buy local.

I would also like to buy local, but I have been forced to do 99% of my tackle shopping online for a few reasons;

1 - most shops don't have items I am looking for in stock!

2 - if they do have it in stock, it is normally 50-100% higher in price!

3 - I can find a much better variety of product online!

4 - I can buy items cheaper online, and have them shipped to my door for much less that it will take for me to drive somewhere to get them.

The best of luck to you in your quest to buy locally.........................

Thats the one. I have not been in there for a good many years now. I thought it might have been spelled wrong.

That looks like a cool squid jig. Where can you catch squid? Do you need to be in a boat to catch them or can you can them from the shore? Is evening/night the best time to catch them?

Minnow weight: $6
Rod: $60
Reel: $30
Catching the big Mackerels FIVE at a time till your arm falls off from fatigue: Priceless!!!

They are a cool looking squid jig, but I have never used one. The standard squid jigs have always worked for me.

I have not caught any squid in NS. When I lived out West, we would catch them for live bait for catching other fish. We caught them with lights over the side of the boat, and scooped them out of the water with nets, But when they would not come to the surface, we would use the jigs to catch them!!!!

That is an AWESOME picture. I used to fish them at night off the piers in Seattle when I lived there and everyone got plenty, but I never saw anything like that!

A generator, and a 1500w light is all you need to float squid like that!!!!!! Posted Image

Jigging squid can be fun! But when you need to fill your live well with them for bait, so you can catch fish with them, then the scooping method is the way to get the job done QUICKLY!!!! Posted Image

BTW, did you find the jigs you are looking for locally yet? Posted Image

I thought I saw some at Fishing Fever a while back. You might want to call them also. Not as fancy as yours however....
