When I encounter them they behave more like cuttlefish, but I am no expert. I have to look into this one.

Unfortunately my tank was out for hydrostatic testing so I could only go snorkling. This was rather ainfull as I forgot my gloves and 5°C is not very pleasant if you stay in the water for 45 minutes!
But I didn' t see them

I have a friend who has a trawling net, that is the only way of collecting a decent amount of specimens.

Are bobtailed squid actually cuttlefish or squid?
They're neither! Morphologically and behaviorally they have characteristics of both, but Sepiolida are a separate order. Which adds to their awesomeness. :) I had the pleasure of caring for and studying Rossia macrosoma and, to a lesser degree, Sepiola atlantica as part of my Masters'. They are fascinating.
