Anglers in Southern California are catching their share of squid ... while getting squirted. No one knows exactly why there's an invasion of "Humboldt Squid" in the waters off San Diego. But people are catching boat loads of the sea creature.Anglers said they are a challenge to catch, putting up a fight on the line and spraying liquid up to thirty feet when they clear the water. And there's also the ink. The squid use the ink as protection, and it will stain anything in its path.
