How to Catch Squid: A Beginners Guide

Updated: Jun 6, 2022

Squid, or calamari as they are known in some areas, are found around all of Australia’s coastline. It’s possible to catch good numbers of squid in most of our coastal reaches, however the relationship they have with anglers varies widely depending where you go.

In Australia, several species of squid are catchable on standard tackle, although there are two main species that get the most attention: bigfin reef squid (commonly called tiger squid), and southern reef squid (usually shortened to calamari).

There are a few smaller species, the most prominent being the arrow squid, a name which actually refers to a number of smaller, similar squid species. They are equally tasty and regularly show up in bags of tiger squid and calamari.
