I used a high low for a while but never doubled up and actually caught more when I used just one at a time.
Same here, I always used one jig on my rig. And like I said before making multiple loops on the rig, so you can get the jig 2 ft up to 4 ft off the bottom. Size, color, the way you jig, and distance from bottom can all make a picky squid strike.
From jigging all spring into summer Ive realized one thing (I like jigging under lights so you can see what your jig does and how squid attack it) Ive noticed squid dont attack the jig when your jigging, as soon as you stop they fly in, and then strike. So you when you think about it, constant jigging aint good. My approach is jig jig jig long pause jig jig jig...
By no way am I a Squid Scientist lol, but thats what worked for me. Give it a try
