Giant squid turning up off Dana Point coast

Sunday, January 06, 2013

Local fishermen say they're catching hundreds of giant squid off an Orange County coast.

Humboldt squid are appearing along the Dana Point coastline. The squid are feeding on the krill that are coming into the area with the tidal flows.

The giant squids normally weigh about five pounds, but some fisherman say they're catching squid weighing as much as 25 pounds.

Fishermen on two boats reportedly caught 800 squid in two hours Saturday night.
