Fisherman catches massive squid
SAN ONOFRE, California (Rueters) - A colossal half-ton squid, believed to be the largest ever caught, was captured recently by Dingo, fishing in his favorite area off the San Onofre nuclear power plant.
"I was just trying to catch a mutant halibut like I normally do. All of a sudden I felt a terrific pull. It was like I was having a tug-of-war with BK and Tube," said Dingo.
Expert Dr. Ralph said the squid had weighed in at 1,089 pounds and measured 33 feet long — heavier but shorter than initial estimates of 990 lbs and 39 feet.
At the time it was caught, Dr. Ralph said it would make calamari rings the size of tractor tires if cut up, but they would taste like ammonia.
