Calamari at Georges Bay

Just had a few days at Georges Bay and was amazed at the size of the calamari. The specimen in the photo had a hood length of 43 centimetres and I caught another at 44cm.
The top lure was a pink Yamashita Egi Live I borrowed from Mike Stevens. Apparently they absorb light and are slightly warmer than the surrounding water. The squid certainly targeted them over my other jigs. I did a bit of research at to see more.

Anyway when the weather stops to blow take a trip to St Helens, check out any areas nearby or over weedbeds and you should get a good feed. The big calamari are big enough for a whole family.
