A heavy sinker is attached to the end away from the bulbous glow portion of the lure. The line from your rod secures to the glow end and you lower the bait to whatever level the squid are located, usually the bottom. The needle-like tines are the "hooks" on a squid lure. The squid is attracted to the bait, embraces it and is caught by the needles. You feel the weight as the squid climbs on and you immediately start to CONTINUALLY REEL! Since there are no barbs, any slack will allow your prize to escape. Keep steadily reeling to the surface, then swing the hapless critter into the boat. Be prepared for a squirt of water and ink; it's part and parcel of squid gathering. Good luck.

The "umbrella frame" tines on squid jigs are very sharp. You should use stealth leader (fluoro or mono) because squid have great eyesight. The two ways I've used them is:

1) daytime - offshore on a dropper loop above a terminal bank sinker weight like a bait rig for bottom fish. Drop into the middle of a bait ball or beneath a feeding frenzy and bounce it or

2) at night when squid rise to boat lights and are visible at the surface - with light spnning gear. You cast out beyond the lights and retrieve slowly - they tend to hit at the edge of the illumination. This would work fine from a pier if you see squid.

Either way, once they hit, just keep pressure on the line and reel fast. I remove the squid by grabbing the top of the jig and jerking it downwards a few inches over a bait well so the squid comes loose and falls into the water. Keep the cover on the bait well, squid can shoot up out of the water several feet!
