Catching fingermark with squid at night

Catch and rig live squid for Fingermark Golden Snapper

Live squid as bait is one of the best ways to catch fingermark (Golden Snapper) but can be a little tricky to rig up.

In this post we use a squid jig to catch some live squid as bait for our fingermark session.


How to hook live squid for catching fish

Holding squid in the palm is wise as they have a sharp beak and will bite!

A cast net or scoop net can also be used when they are plentiful.

Smaller squid are rigged a bit differently to larger models and this is depicted in depth in the video.

To use live squid as bait you first have to catch and rig them. We show you how in the video. Then hold on tight for the fishing action as we get monstered by huge Fingermark Golden Snapper. Clearly... it works!

That is over 2 kilometres of metre plus barra! With attitudes changing from 'keep all you can' towards catch and release, Ryan has decided to share his extensive knowledge and hopefully inspire people of all ages to get out from behind the computer screen/TV and into the fishing outdoors lifestyle he has spent his life perfecting.
