With the "first cold" start to get the cuttlefish....
Going to drift, near the coast, at shallow depths, from 2 to 8 meters
Easy fishing, relaxing and produces an especially good eating  :)
Can you suggest me some bait "secret" for cuttlefish?
In Italy we use the  prawn imitation with good success but there is always more to learn ......

This is the biggest I've taken..
Thanks
knife

check with these guys -- they seem to be all about Cephalopods & with a name like Martinetti, they may well have a distributor/affiliate in Italy:

...no personal experience w/ their jigs, but I have their 13' budget Carp Rod for light Surf use -- well worth their $60 sale price & DAMN GOOD for an eBay steal (<$50, DELIVERED!)

Philaromas, thanks so much for the links to the squid jigs. I'm always on the lookout for new jigs.

yeah, they may be a good source for unusual sizes -- they cater to guys catching extra-small squid up North & guys in California catching Monster Humboldt...   various LED options & blank squid hooks for live/cut bait look pretty interesting, also.

I've used the squid plain bait hooks. They work when all else fails. If you've ever seen what the squid do to a chunk bait it's scary. If you go in the water it's not the sharks and such that are the real threat, it's the squid. Could you imagine being skinned alive?  :o :o anyway thanks for the links.
