was on the news yesterday with pics. but what do you do with giant squid? squid steaks, I guess?

besides for bait, we eat squid a couple of ways, but can't imagine using those huge beasts *LOL*!

Every year they catch these huge squids in Cabo San Lucas on the troll! They don't just get snagged but actually aggressively attack the bait or lure! The boats harvest the squids and they are considered a delicasy. I also would love to make strip baits for the Old Grounds out of one of these bad boys!

I've caught them at night in the Sea of Cortez. Its quite a sight watching them circle the boat, flashing different colors. When you bring one to the surface, you aim the water jet at the person standing next to you :D
