Real life like. Caught couple now off shore of OCMD.
The size mimics the largest live squid I've seen and that should make it effective
I'm really excited to fish this extra large version of the ultimate squid for big bluefin tuna in west coast waters. However, unlike the smaller versions, there is no dedicated rigging from Chase Baits to add necessary weight while maintaining functionality and sufficient hook strength for these big fish. Getting creative, but would love to see a heavy/beefed up Ultimate Squid Rig for the big bait (at least 10oz of weight and 300-400lb wire strength)!
These are huge. I can't wait to try them out here for some big lingcod and rockfish. Even the 5 and 7 inch versions look great. Love them.
