Do perch like squid?
Eating habits: The diet of white perch varies with the season. They eat bottom-dwelling insect larvae in the winter and early spring. In the warmer months, they eat large burrowing mayflies, water fleas and small fish, squid and crabs.
Is squid good for pier fishing?
It was easily stored (frozen) and stayed on the hook well. Today, I rarely use squid for pier fishing unless I am fishing for mackerel, sharks or rays. It is simply not as good of a bait for many of the more preferable species. However, a tremendous number of anglers do use squid and they do catch fish.
