Barracuda

We have at least two kinds. Big ones, thirty / forty pounders that rip on our live bonitos intended for cubera snapper and little ones like in this picture that attack small rapalla’s trolled inshore for multiple species.

The big ones commonly get hung on rapallas intended for wahoo, but only around sundown. They are ok to eat, cut into steaks and deep fried, but I’ll pass. The slime and smell sort of puts me off. Goliath Grouper eat barracuda steaks, and so did one of the biggest roosterfish I’ve ever seen.
