This angler thought he hit a snag, but it turns out that he had hooked an incredibly large octopus! Check out the cool underwater footage, as well as the sheer beauty of the octopus. Before you ask, according to the OP, it was kept and eaten. It wasn't caught intentionally, but it swalled a pretty large hook, and there was no hope of removing it. So, the fish would have suffered had it not been kept.
