Epic Day of Squid Fishing Off Newport Beach

Most people probably read about all the large squid that were washing up on OC beaches this past week. Me and my friend Kyle went to see if we could actually find them out there yesterday and we weren't disappointed. We found wide open action only a mile off the Newport Beach jetty. They were biting any jig thrown in the water. Here is a picture of one the beasts.

    Wow. They are humongous. How could you touch them with your bare hands though? :)

    Very carefully! That one in the picture is dead already so it was okay to pick it up. Those squid have teeth on their tentacles and a huge parrot like beak to contend with. I wouldn't want to be in the water with em at all.
