Hi Denis, I use them all the time and the whiting love them. I buy one at the fish market and clean out the guts, then cut it into 8 bits and freeze them snap lock bags. Each bag is enough for a session as it is pretty tough and you can catch 3 or 4 fish on each bait. I usually have mussels as well so I use a few of them too.
Cheers.

If I need to buy squid for bait it's always Arrow squid, much cheaper than calamari and works just as well when pounded.
