Hi all

This may be a silly question but what is the best way to cut up a squid to use as strip bait under a float as am currently preparing my gear and bait ready for a fishing trip tomorrow and suddenly realised that I didn't know how to cut my squid up. Many thanks in advance..........Colin :-/ :-/ :-/ :-/

It dont matter how you go it tbh but the best way i have found is either cut it width ways make squid rings or cut it length ways
simple and easy

col everyone does it different

i rip the head off and cut from where the head was so it all opens up then in strips some people remove the skin ( pinky spots ) but il agree with howie i dont think it matters too much .
