Squid fishing

 Hi everyone, I am not experienced at doing land based squid fishing, so can anyone help me.

I live North of the river but dont  mind travelling to get a feed, so can anyone tell me where 

to find these little suckers and what are the best times.

Also if anyone is going out to do some land based squid fishing do you mind if I tag along.


Regards Kent

I think Kent is chasing more land based information Dale, the other threads didn't really cover this in great detail.


Unfortunately I can't shed much light on this Kent, I'm trying to find some places myself.

I've caught more than my fair share of squid in the past but it has either been out of a boat or from a jetty (Busselton).


Over the last few weeks I've had a crack at South Mole, Be Apartments, the rock groyne near Fremantle Sailing Club and down at Woodman Point View but have been unsuccessful so far (you can probably guess I'm based south of the river).

I did run into a bloke down at Woodman Point that said there'd be more around in a month or so, but I don't know how accurate that is.


As to best times of day, I've caught them at all times before but have had the most luck in the morning or late arvo.


Any information that people can provide regarding land based spots and times is much appreciated.

 if you use the search function on the left hand side of the page and type in the key words in your question, or even the whole question if you wish you will find that much info on this topic thats it's not funny. everything from where,what jigs and outfits to use and even what colour jocks to wear. good luck

Busselton Jetty and Albany

Busselton Jetty and Albany are worth noting for big hoods.

try google maps and see if there are weed beds along the coast line.

I would like to try Yanchep Lagoon though.

Just a tip

I have found that the colour of the squid jig didn't matter when I stuck a small glow stick (.50 size) to the jig with a lackey band the squid went mental over it. Hope that helps you catch a heap.
