"Deep Sea Creatures-Caught"!

*** WARNING*** This post may be hazardous to your health!
My hubby and some his friends went out on a big boat in Monterey, Ca
and went Deep Sea Fishing.. This a good time for "Squid" catching.. You know..
Yummy Calamari..

This is a 58 pound Squid.. Just so amazing.. I didn't know squid got this big and were in the Ocean. They caught about 40 Squid that day..

It is quite an ordeal.. The squid are swimming down the length of 3 football fields and to reel them in it takes about 2000 times to real the fishing pole line to bring them to the surface.. Let's just say you develop some good forearms..

The squid were brought home in big ice chests and cut into steak size and they pound them with a mallet and shrink wrap them..

The smell was about to make me sick.. We have our freezer full.. Now we just need
to learn how to cook them.. Hope I can stand the smell... :)

Okay Calleen.. my 1st thoughts = "TOTALLY DISGUSTING". My 2nd thoughts - "I'm glad the boys had fun!" Good luck cooking them - I hope the smell doesn't take over the house! I think I'm sick now - I can't stand things from the ocean; especially BIG things! All slimy and such. Love you anyways!!
