Hi, went out last night with CG and hubby, at about 3.30am CG pulled in this little critter from the depths....initially it looked like a large hermit crab, but on closer inspection we discovered the hermit crab portion, but the shell was soft and squidgy at the top, looked like a cuttlefish or squid:crazy: with a hermit atttched at the bottom...the picture shows that the hook and bait had been taken through the top part of the squidgy bit!!!!

I don't have my phone at the mo with proper picture on it, but this is a photoshop merge i have done to try and show, i will put up original pic later when phone is charged. The critter was about 7 inches long and a circumference of about 4 inches
