Not sure. Think calas. When we get to an Internet place, we'll post the pics.

If the wings extend from the rear of the hood, (the pointy end), right to the head, then they're cala. If the wings extend only about half the hood length, they're arrow squid..

Must be great because we have no experience with squid and could have caught all we wanted last night.

Thats a great catch for the first time squiding! They are definitely southern calamari.
