Sorry for the late reply Commando! :(

I would recommend starting with the cheaper brands before getting the branded ones such as yamashita, yozuri, kanji, harimitsu, etc. Have a feel of the terrain first before using thoses spanking new branded ones hahas, for the size go for 2.0-3.0, colour wise i have this colour that that'll i always refer to when eging, will upload it tonight :D

i haven't really done much eging in SG but i do know there have been catches from st john island, kusu island, punggol jetty, changi boardwalk, labrador park.

Hope this helps!

was your drag settings too high? when you hook onto a squid it will naturally shoot out its ink out as a form of natural defense, it will also attempt to propel itself backwards, so having a high drag will actually cause the tentacles to be ripped out from the hooks.
