Calamari is one of my favorite foods. We can't buy it at any of the grocery stores near us anymore.

Thanks Steve, I'll check it out. The 2 closest Walmarts to me have not had any calamari for a long time. I'll have to stock up if they have it back in.

I like it all but prefer the rings which is the body. Are you thinking of octopus legs?

Squid is bait . Nothing else. Spent way too much time pukin over the rail while cutting up that nasty stuff to ever eat it.

Also used it for bait. Worked great for bait but I could never eat it. Might be good but not for me

I had several gallon of squid I got last fall fishing, it was awesome all cleaned up and cooked up in the deep fryer.

I always thought it tasted pretty good... But I got tired of chewing on it for 20 minutes. Every piece I ever ate was like chewing on one of those pink erasers.

Pretty sure that is octopus. Really good balanced in cider vinegar then smoked. Locally marketed as Kraken.

I wonít eat squid for reasons similar to what 3Fingers spelled out. If you barf it up you most likely lost your taste for it.

Ha ha yeah no for sure I posted the pics then couldn't get back in. It was pretty good, not great not bad. I couldn't taste any difference between skin and sucker on or peeled. The wife wasn't having suckers on her salad... I'll try a few other ways and see.

I always traded the ones caught in shrimp pots with a Pilipino gal. She got octopus and I got pancit.

I have found octopus to be tough if you donít do it right. If you blanch it the skin and suckers peel right off. Frozen itís easy to slice very thin then marinade and grill. Pickled itís tender and my favorite is light smoked and canned

Both squid and octopus should only be cooked for a very short time, or they will become tough. I usually cook calamari for about 2 1/2 minutes.

I see the Board of Fish just took some action on squid, defined some gear etc. I saw some pretty good sized dead ones on the bottom of the Seward harbor in the fall pretty sure they came in on their own there weren't many guys still fishing and they were spread out so it didn't look like somebody had thrown out their unused bait.

Thatís interesting. I have heard a little about guys out of Valdez catching them with a multi hooked jig, glow in the dark, at very deep depths
