It has non barbed hooks. As long as you keep tension on the squid will not get off.

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!

Not sure what a "longfin" is; probably a regional name. The lure is a very effective squid lure, no matter the type of squid you're after. I've caught humboldts in the Sea Of Cortez on such a jig as the one pictured, as well as market squid on nests off Southern California. Found a 2-speed reel a distinct advantage with the larger model humboldts in the 30#-50#+ range, otherwise feels like you're trying to lift a sunken ship.

Yes, the Lead Masters Magnum Squid Jigs can be used to catch longfin and Humboldt squid.

Here is information that I was able to find online about Humboldt Squid:

“Fishing for Humboldt squid is best done during the dark of night using multiple, pre-mounted 300 to 500-watt halogen lamps, which generally draws the big squid toward the boat. After they appear, steadily chumming using chunks of mackerel or squid will usually keep them hanging around. Although they can sometimes be caught with bait or on conventional fishing lures, special equipment is sometimes needed for larger Humboldt squid to get the job done right.
I recommend using a 3 to 6 foot length of multi-strand, 150+ pound test wire leader with a specially designed squid jig attached to the terminal end of the rig. These lures have numerous pin-like prongs running up and down the body, which ensnare the tentacles of the giant squid as soon as they wrap around the artificial bait.”

Thank you!
