14.3 Squid Luring Device
This gear consists of a combination wood-iron bar handle with nylon monofilament 0.2-0.5 mm. and the squid lure. The squid lure resembles an octopus or fish which is covered with pink synthetic silk cloth or silver tin paper. Both wooden handle and the iron bar are 40 cm. long. A scoop net is used in scooping the catch. The gear is operated at night using lights.
A circular line with plastic straw strips as artificial bait is also used to attract squid. It is operated in a small banca at night time using light. The line is connected in such a manner that it can be continuously rotated on one side of the banca. Squid that bite the artificial bait are caught by the scoop net.
