I sat back and waited for the fisherman to reel it in but it did not happen, the cuttlefish was struggling so I surfaced to see why it was not being reeled in. The fisherman was not tending to his rod so I thought bugger it I'm gonna help it...I went back down and used my stick to turn the lure around so the cuttlefish was able to pull itself free, it happened instantly as the lure had no barbs. Luckily we did not meet the fisherman however he would have been clueless about what had happened! I am not against responsible fishing however this cuttlefish would have suffered for a long time.
First pic is the cuttle fish trapped and the second after being freed, slight damage to its tentacles is visible on the right side...
