Barracuda are some of the most beautiful ugly fish in the ocean. They are fast, eating machines with a face that only a mother could love. Most summers these fish will be present at nearly every reef on the coast of Georgia and it is not uncommon to see them schooling by the hundreds. While many people are wary of eating them due to stories of the Ciguatera bacteria, they are actually quite safe and very tasty. Barracuda are a great fish to catch on light tackle or fly.
One thing that I love to do that many people in this area ignore is sight fishing for Barracuda. We can pitch anything from a live bait to a fly to them. They love to eat tube lures, crankbaits, soft plastics, and they won’t ignore an injured fish on a light hook. They tend to shred some tackle but it’s worth it to me for all the excitement it brings.
While fishing for Barracuda, we can also fish for many other species like Spadefish, Sea Bass, Kingfish, Spanish Mackerel, Tripletail, and more. Just let me know if you prefer to target another species or if you want to target whatever is biting best at the time.
