If you want to join them, ask at the desk of your hotel. Lights are dropped in the water to attract the squid, like moths to a flame. An Australian female food blogger who participated in the hunt, Foraging Otaku, wrote: “Squid fishing intrigues me even more as the squid is such a curiously alien-like nocturnal creature with its flashing camouflage skin and suckered tentacles. Needless to say I was as excited as a giddy child going to the Easter Show when I got on the boat and couldn’t wait to start fishing for the critters.
