I really only put ths on as a novelty factor, and to get my dog "Skip" in the picture! Octopus are found around the entire Irish coastline and take fish baits when they get the chance, usually during slack water. They are a bit of fun, probably good to eat, but I prefer looking at them a while and slipping them back into the water.

Skip is'nt sure what to make of this!

They have a great turn of speed when you release them, usually firing off a plume of ink during the get away.
