Or just rig them Paternoster style with a sacrificial sinker on the bottom.

what about no sinker on a float style.

im also toying with a few ideas at this stage to get my dad and cousin into catching some squid, but so far neither of them have caught using the paternoster style from their first outing. came close but no cigar, go too excited and pulled the tentacles off loll

Yeah already use the float n jig and work it like I would a normal jig,but it's not the same feel as leader to jig.

Guess I could take lead out of a cheap jig n attach that with a float.
Need to see if jig sink with no lead in it.

What setup are you running?

If you fish with high quality braid like Tasline or WFT it's easy to run 10kg line 20-25lb leader and not really lose casting distance at all. I find at martha the weed is pretty forgiving but a lot of other spots (like f ing flinders) the moment a jig touches the bottom it's donated to the salt gods.
