yes, 30kilo on my 12wt in the sea of cortez. over an hour to get it to the gaff. provided one great dinner for the entire camp of folks it was also quite boring as the squid reverses to attack so the fly was in a tentacle. as you tried to reel the critter up, it would open its arms, kind of like cranking an umbrella out of the deep. when it decided to run, however, it was damn fast.
