- When Joseph Ali dove into the nighttime waters around a Southern California pier, he came away with a monster of a lobster and the catch of a lifetime.

Ali tells the Orange County Register he was closing his father's business, Zack's Pier Plaza in Huntington Beach, on Monday when he saw the ocean was calm and decided to dive for dinner.

He saw the giant but it was too big to grab, so he wrestled it to shore. The lobster weighed nearly 18 pounds.
