Here's one of those ugly bastards Mike's talking about(BTW- I mean the squid).  I went on the same boat 3 years ago, it was fun but I didn't care for the meat too much.  I borrowed a medium weight pole from a buddy with a two-speed reel.  The whole time you're on the boat, the captain has one hand on the wheel and the microphone in the other, screaming into the PA system like a drill seargant "GET YOUR GEAR IN THE WATER, DONT SCREW AROUND, WE NEED LINES IN THE WATER, THIS AINT NO TIME TO SIT DOWN AND EAT A FRIGGIN SAMMICH, GET YER ASSES UP TO THE RAIL AND GET FISHING!!!"  I was right at the bow of the boat and I was pulling one up and he yells "COME ON, EVERYBODY IS CATCHING THEM, HELL - EVEN THIS GUY IN FRONT OF ME WITH THE TROUT POLE IS CATCHING THEM"  I almost fell over laughing so hard... that guy is a crazy character!!!

 I almost made one of those trips but I was unable to make it but some of my buddies went and had a blast and they had fishing bait for a year. you know the type hook and line guys anyways I still want to go out and catch one of those monsters. I also still am curious about spearing one of those bad boys as well ;D ;) ???

 Thats what I figure these suckers must be like jets in the water. It is always ok to dream but I would probably chicken out last second considering I dont want to have to buy a new spear gun because I let go of it.. ;D ;D ;D

here's a You-Tube video of the chick in SoCal that is in that news story about the giant squid.  It's pretty funny to hear her talk, she's obviously been in the valley a number of years... and she mistakenly says it grabbed her "high-pressure" inflator.  At least she didn't say "oxygen tank" ;)
