Thread: Barracuda Strikes!

  1. #1

    Default Barracuda Strikes!

    Meet Mr Barry Cuda!

    Locally known as a Kaku i personally regard this as a "rubbish" fish. The slimy coat smells, they slice up my hooked fish & cleanly cut through my leaders costing me my hooks & lures. The larger ones do put up a decent fight. I do keep a few under 10lb for friends who do savor it's white meat. Very larger Cudas have been known to contain ciguatera from time to time. I loose many hooks, lures & fluorocarbon or monofilament leaders to Barracudas yearly.

    Once hook i generally release them so i found i only have a small percentage of pics & vids on hand. This is less then 5% of my hook-ups these past 5yrs.

    Thanks Chris,a lot of people here on the Westcoast consider our barracuda a nuisance fish also,but many do eat and like, my fishing buddy “Bubba” who died a few months ago hated them the first time he caught some.
    He said I don’t want to catch them slimy fish! So I took some bled em and kept on ice. When we got home I filleted and cut out the blood line and then fried after coated with cornmeal and spices,he loved it!
    After that,barracuda was all he wanted to catch locally! I never let him forget it.
