Doesnt look like he was using an egi setup for that one.

I remember watching a river monsters episode about the Humboldt squid in the Sea of Cortez. They are a fair bit meaner than our local Calamari.

I've watched a doco on those squid. They call them the "red devil" apparently fisherman have fallen overboard and been eaten by them when they are in plague proportions.. https://youtu.be/2Hv17U2z2q0


Also if you're interested in squid and have some time on your hands, I've been watching docos from a Youtube channel called "PBS Eons" they have heaps of videos on interesting things from the past. https://youtu.be/S4vxoP-IF2M

Cheers, Anth
