Benjamin Pew down from Wales had the shock of his angling life last week when he caught this 48lb squid of off Exmouth in Devon during a deep sea fishing trip.
Benjamin was fishing for Cod when his line went very heavy – “I thought it was a ray at first or a massive conger. When it got near the surface we saw its eye and I though it was a huge code – it took me over 15 minutes of pumping to get it in.”
Benjamin caught it on a whole sandeel tipped with a king ragworm. Benjamin commented – “I will be eating squid rings for a long time to come!”
