I was able to get in a couple casts while on vacation with family at a resort in Cebu. This Green Eyed Squid aggressively chased and snatched my little Yo Zuri Pins minnow. To my surprise I was able to hook it and bring in my first Squid on a lure 🙂 I found that to get successful hook-up with a Squid you need to wait a second or two after the cuttlefish strikes before reeling in. That second wait allows the cuttlefish time to pull the lure in close to its beak which gives you a better chance for a positive hook-up if you are using simple treble hooks.
Squid in Tagalog is Pusit and in Bisaya it is known as Nokus.
