Australian angler and outdoor journalist Al McGlashan seems to have a knack for being in the right place at the right time to witness nature’s rarest displays. Last year, the host of the television show “Big Fish, Small Boat” made headlines when he got a harrowingly close underwater view of a mako shark attacking a striped marlin as he filmed the fish’s release for Australian fisheries officials.
Now McGlashan is back in the news after discovering a fresh carcass of one of the ocean’s most elusive and mythic creatures, the giant squid. As McGlashan’s cameras rolled, blue sharks began feeding on the squid within reach of him and his amazed crew. Field & Stream has exclusive video and photos of the encounter, which McGlashan calls “the weirdest, but not the scariest” of his career.
