This page describes artificial squid daisy chains and other rigs for catching tuna, billfish, and other offshore fish.

Artificial squid have been utilized for many years but their use has really mushroomed along the mid Atlantic coast in the last decades. Squid can be rigged individually, in daisy chains, spreader bars, and dredges. Some anglers use them strictly as a teaser but most are now rigged to catch fish.

One of the easiest and most productive rigs is the squid daisy chain. Daisy chains feature 4-7 squid rigged on a leader with a snap at the rear. The squid can be rigged inline or can branch off from the main leader. Attached to the rear snap is a favorite lure such as green machine, tuna feather, or other artificial lure.
