I know how to rig baitfish, rollmop and shrimp for sturgeon but I'm not sure how to rig squid. Do you just tie the whole thing to your hook and line like roll mop and sandshrimp with magic thread? Do you cut it up and use pieces?
I'll give that a shot!Moe said:I am not sure how other people rig it, but I find squid very tough and durable, so I just pass the hook through it 2 or 3 times, and it just stays on forever for me.

In the middle of a shad run on the Columbia? What would I be spending that 20 minutes trying to catch them on? I've heard they're pretty good fighters and fun to catch but have no clue how to go about it. any pointers?Fishtopher said:Good luck out there!
On a side note- I find it to be rough fishin' for gators with any other bait while we are in the middle of a Shad run. I would spend 20 minutes trying to catch a Shad before you dropped your gator gear with squid down there. Jus' sayin'.
