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: http://saltfishing.about.com/od/commonspecie1/fl/Fishing-for-Giant-Humboldt-Squid.htm
“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.”
