The weather had been dropping rapidly in the past weeks and I had no real interest in catching fish so I concentrated on the squid. I put on a slightly larger jig around a 2.5 and a couple of casts later, I felt a large pull. The souther calamari are a lot larger than the arrow squid and you can tell from the fight when you have one on. After a quick tussle, I pulled up this beauty:
I has been ages since my last southern calamari, but it was well worth the wait! For those who can not tell the difference, you can see the wings go up to the head, whereas the the arrow squid are shorter, giving it the appearance of an arrow. You can also tell by the size of the eyes, the southern calamari have large green eyes.
