Title: ID help of jellyfish thing.

Wtf is this? More solid than I would consider a jellyfish. And arranged in a long strand. It’s doubled over in the pic because of how I snagged it. It’s right next to the kayak and you can see my paddle shaft for size reference.

What you saw might have been a cluster of squid eggs?

Don't think so, just smaller. I'm sure I posted a picture, but I can't seem to find it. Anyways, it looked just like this:
