Trip Info

The Catch
Barracuda (Great)

Had a last minute booking today for an afternoon trip.  We quickly got fresh live pilchards and greenies for our bait. Went for a short ride to the bay, but slow activity and lack of bait in the bay.  Released a hard fighting barracuda after 30 minutes of fishing.  We decided to go fishing in the back channels.  Saw a couple of rolling tarpons and lots of bird activity.  First cast and BOOM, rod bending action right away!!  After a 15 minute fight, we caught a 20 pound Monster snook.  After a couple of quick pictures, we released him to catch him another day.  5 minutes after releasing the snook, BOOM, rod bending action again!  There it was. The famous puertorrican Silver King. Fought him for about 20 minutes and pulled the hook right at boat side but enjoyed the fight!

Had a very fun day and look forward for next trip to get the one that got away!
