North Craft Squid Jigs



The NORTH CRAFT SURF Jig, also known as DMSF, is an easy-to use squid lure that is perfect for folks new to the Eging game. Easy in a sense that you don’t need to jerk it aggressively or whip the rod hard to make it dart like conventional squid lures. Lifting the rod tip and retrieving the slack will enable the DMSF to dart from one side to the other. Repeat and you’ll have a nice darting action without much physical effort.

The NORTH CRAFT SURF Jig has a rather unconventional design. While other conventional squid lures (Jig) are designed streamlined to resemble a shrimp with a tow point on the nose, the SURF has a rather fat profile for buoyancy (and pushing lots of water!) and a tow point located just above its head. This profile and weighted head design allows the SURF to rest upright on the seabed at an angle close to about 45 degrees.

Even without retrieving, this posture can be very enticing to the inquisitive squid. Another advantage of the SURF’s fat design and tow point position is the ability to swim in an ‘S’ or Slalom fashion. Just retrieve steadily and the SURF will weave from side to side. This slalom swimming action is deadly when the squid are keen on chasing down moving prey at night.

HOW TO WORK THE NORTH CRAFT SURF

1. Straight retrieve

Retrieve steadily and the SURF will swim in a Slalom fashion. This method is ideal when the squid are aggressively chasing down moving prey.

2. Jerk & Fall Method

After casting out the SURF, allow the lure to free fall. Unlike conventional squid lures, the SURF will sink rather quickly on a free fall thanks to its weighted head. Apply a little tension on the line on the fall and the SURF will sink a little slower at an angle of approximately 45 degrees. Squid often attack the Jig on the fall and many a time, it is difficult for anglers fishing with conventional Jig to feel the take due to the slack line. With the SURF, this is not an issue as the Jig will still fall enticingly with some slight line tension, allowing the angler to feel any slight tap or take. This makes the Eging game even more exciting as you can actually feel the squid strike or grab the Jig

3. Swimming off the Seabed

Let the SURF sink all the way to the seabed. Once it reaches the bottom, retrieve the SURF but keep it very close or just slightly off the bottom. The SURF will swim with its tail (and hooks) at an angle of about 45 degrees very close to the bottom. Stop your retrieve and the SURF will remain upright in the angled position – something that conventional Jig cannot do. Vary your retrieve and it does pay to occasionally stop retrieving for a few seconds. Not retrieving any line doesn’t mean the SURF is motionless. The upright SURF will actually sway (while maintaining the all-important 45 degree +/- angle position) with the currents, which is irresistible to the inquisitive squid.
