Rigging Tsunami Squid

Whats the best way to rig a 6" squid? I was looking at it today and it appears that the hook is going to be too far forward using a standard 2/0 or 3/0 hook. Is there long shank hook available? I was thinking of piercing the body of the bait with an awl, threading the line through, snelling 2/0 Gami baitholder then push it back into the body of the squid so the top of the hook sticks up thru the tenticles...kind of like rigging a tube bait for bass.

I have done pretty well with the 3" squid the past few trips, only problem is not a lot of keepers. I thought if I went with a bigger squid I might end up getting a few more keepers.

by far my favorite fluke "and ocean bass" lure. I tie them almost like Leps no BS rig, almost, using different sizes and colors and when the big ones are around, I add a stinger to the bottom squid for those long belly strips. On really fast drifts I also add in a piece of styrofoam to the bottom one to keep it up a little.

Let them down slow and they shouldnt twist too much on you.

Good luck with them. Theyre great lures.
