Hi Guys,

is there a difference between using cuttlefish or squid as bait?
I am partial to good old chokka but have heard from a few people that it doesn't make a difference (I have heard the opposite as well)
In Moz fresh squid is hard to come by but the cuttlefish are a dime a dozen at the local markets and they get nice and big

I am sure it will work just as well, especially if fresh. Different worlds here vs Moz, but a while back I was fishing next to a guy who was using fresh cuttlefish he had caught himself - me and another guy were using good quality chokka but watched TV while he caught 3 kob.
