A rare run of Giant Squid are biting bait off of our fishing poles! Check out the iPhone photo emailed from the boat tonight to our editors.

AC Team members are taking a July 4th holiday break to do a little fishing, and up came these giant (and delicious) squid!

Photo taken July 1st at 10pm PST by AC Team members about ten miles off the coast of Newport Beach, California and emailed from their iPhones to AC's editors in California and New York City.

Catch a glimpse of these squid in action from underwater videographer Walter Marti's lens featured on scuba diving website diver.net!
