i guess ive never been mad enough at a squid to want to catch and eat one.....
I was the first guy who started to charter a boat exclusively for squid fishing in the US about 20 years ago. Now you have to make a reservation for a boat at least 6 month in advance during the squid run.
How much can you catch a day ? If you know how to jig, you probably catch 100 - 200 lbs squid by using squid jigs. That is a lot of squid as 2 -3 squid makes a pound. But not a single squid is wasted as we eat them and save them for bait.

The squirting would be hilarious!

I love calamari in whatever way it's prepared. Does it freeze well when it's vacuum packed Kil?
The best way to eat squid is to slice them like noodle when just caught and eat with soy source/washibi or Korean hot source. :)

They freeze very well.

thenewkid,
If squid are on the surface, cast Yozuri squid jig without a sinker as far as you can using spinning rod and retrieve slowly with some jerk action.

If you see your bait has marks bitten by squid, lower your Yozuri squid jigs to the same depth as your bait was using hi - lo rig with a sinker.
You can use light sticks, but Yozuri glow jigs are good enough.

American squid jigs don't work well. Try to use Yozuri type squid jigs.
