    What can I say.. I've been after one for a while and I finally got it tonight. It weighed bang on 12 lb and took full squid stuffed with cart.

    Came in fairly easy till it got near the edge then went ballistic and I was running down the scar trying to catch up with it.

    Caught it a couple of hours into the ebb. Managed one more mop and lost a couple more. The billets were also out in force

    Hi Simon. This was my first time doing it. I've never been a big fan of squid but I know that it does tend to sort the better fish out so I made a conscious effort to give it a good go last night.

    The way I did it was I pulled the head and guts out of 1 squid, nipped my hook into the point. I then cut a piece of cart to size and stuffed it inside.
    I bound this to the hook then took another squid and cut it right open and wrapped it over the first bait but further up the hook to make a kind of join.
    I could see that the cart juice was leaking out under pressure of the elastic so I didn't bother puncturing it.

    Hope that helps

    It does mate thanks. Will try that from the shore but also while uptiding. Should think a bait like that would last a while if not being nibbled at or crabbed
