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 http://www.ejtodd.com.au/Yamashita_Egi_Oh_Q_Live.html 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.
