Coastal fishermen go after squid for first time
San Mateo County Times

Link to full article

Here are a few quotes from this article about fishing for jumbo or humboldt squid out from Pillar Point Harbour and some 20 miles off the San Mateo County Coast.

Westphal and Sereni were two of six passengers on Tom Mattusch's Huli Cat recreational fishing boat that set off from Pillar Point Harbor Tuesday morning. The goal: finding the elusive "jumbo squid" often found nearly 2,000 feet below the ocean's surface. The result: success.

The Huli Cat crew and passengers caught 53 squid. The larger googly-eyed creatures stretched out to nearly 6 feet and weighed approximately 40 pounds. Mattusch said it was the first time the squid have been caught by a recreational fishing boat out of Pillar Point Harbor.

Humboldt squid, or jumbo squid, are common to South America but have begun showing up in California, Oregon and Alaska......local fishermen say the squid aren't entirely uncommon in Northern California.
