It is an octopus, it weighed 40 lbs. It was caught using a method of subsistance fishing they use in Alaska, called a "skate". It is a set line with a number of hooks on a heavy line, a float on one end and a weight on the other.

Wierd. Good job though.

What do you do with something like that? Do you catch them live or are they dead?

They are good eating and they also make excellent halibut bait. They are very much alive when you get them to the boat, you have to be careful they don't latch on to the boat as you might break their tentacles off getting them loose.
