Egi Fishing "Egiing" is Squid Fishing but refined by the Japanese with everything from purpose built rods, reels, lines, scents and an amazing range of Jigs.

Not to mention bad for your cholesterol or uric acid levels... Been rather successful lately and just suffered a bout of gout as a result!

Just Google Egiing you'll find loads of gear

This is big time in Japan with lots of Anglers chasing Squid from Breakwalls etc they take it pretty seriously and can be an expensive hobby if you like the top of the range Egi Rods, Reels etc, but many different ways to catch them and the gear for every situation, few guys into it in WA with a couple Egiing Comps up and going contact Honsu for more details.

Special rods, reels, & lines What the.........
Can understand the lure/jig thing, but whats with the rest?
Easily caught with handlines for Christ sake.
Obviously I'm missing something, but what? How does a refined rod n reel make a difference

I think you could really say the same about catching Bream because a handline a sinker and a hook will catch you a Bream as well, and I guess if it's your passion and hobby then why not and like Bream fishing the more specialised gear you use the more you catch I know the guys who do use egi rods etc and different Japanese jigs are very productive they'd probably say more productive than cheaper jigs and handline

Well for one Japanese jigs are FAR superior, yamash*ta and yo zuri are my favourites, im not sure if its the more realistic natural colours or the sink rate/way they fall but they seem to outfish(outsquid?) all others. Last weekend i went squidding of the rocks and 4 guys there were just using your normal fluro green/pink jigs and said they had all caught nothing. Cast out with this camo type brown colour and in about 30 seconds i was on.

Rods? Go on youtube and see the way the Japanese retrieve there jigs, its crazy, massive rod flicks with like 8ft rods that have a really soft tips, so you cant pull the hooks when the squid strikes and a better action on the jig

Reel wise doesn't make so much of a difference same thing as a Daiwa Sol vs an Exist, both will catch bream one is just more enjoyable, smoother, higher performing reel

Not sure on the big deal with line though.

Buy a long flexi graphite stick and there you have it - egi rod
I use light braid.. 4lb is more than enough.. about 2m of 4lb leader
Drag set so it only just doesn't peel if you rip the lure towards you. Rarely drop any squid
2-4kg trion.. I think a 1-3 would be better suited though
