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.

pjm66, those are one of my favorites for 3-waying:). To keep them from spinning I usually cut the fins (wings) off just like a real squid. I rig them almost exactly the same as the real ones, double hooks and a small strip of the real thing for scent. I install a spro ball bearing swivel about 24" from the lead hook...overkill? perhaps. But the leader doesn't need to be replaced every 5 minutes for looking like a pig tail. By the way... the Brown are my color of choice. Good luck, Tom.
