Barracuda time!

Trip Info


Barracuda action has really picked with the passage of a recent cold front and water temperature drop.
Sight fishing and casting tube lures and top water plugs to these silvers missiles has to be experienced by anybody who loves to fish.
Reaching speeds reportedly of up to 40 mph while chasing your lure to the boat in less then 2 ft. of water. This is not the same as hooking a barracuda on the reef in deep water that barely fights.Unable to dive deep on the flats, all of their lightning speed and energy is used to smoke your reel drag laterally.
Changing direction in a split second and leaving the angler struggling to catch up as they rocket back towards the boat as fast as they just ran from it. Amazing!
