Giant Squid Invade Off Dana Point Coast

DANA POINT, Calif. (KTLA) — Giant squid have been appearing along the Dana Point coastline in recent weeks.

Most of the squid, known as Humboldt squid, weigh between 3 and 5 pounds.

However, local fishermen have been known to catch squid weighing as much as 25-pounds in the past.

The last giant squid run was in Sept. 2011, according to Donna Kalez, general manager of Dana Wharf Sportfishing.

Most of the squid have been found 3 to 4 miles from the harbor and about 2 miles off the beach.
