Watch: Unsuspecting fisherman gets inked in the face

Two fishermen got a little more than they bargained for when trying to reel in a squid. 

Casey Mitchell and Jarrad Edwards were competing to see who could catch the most squid off the coast of St. Kilda in South Australia when the pair spotted one particularly large creature lurking beside the boat.
