Man Eating SQUID on the East Coast!

Mozza was in again with Mick and Maria this-morning!

He revealed there is a MEGA squid ont he East Coast of Tassie, lurking deep in the depths of the ocean. It even tried to attack a 1 meter long squid that was caught. (listen below)

Mozza: " A 1 meter long squid was caught, rigged and dropped as bair for a Swordfish and came back with sucker marks 8-10 times bigger on it meaning there is some “giant squid” about in our waters, that’s an 8-10m long squid." SCARY!

Mozza also witnessed a friend of his nail a 219kg Swordfish after 3 years and over 40 trips to the shelf trying for one – Mozza welled up, he welled up it was a beautiful thing.
