The thrill of a fast hit and big fight. Barracuda fishing in Key West is without a doubt one of the under sung heros of fishing. Shallow water, explosive strikes and plenty of barracudas to cast to.
The Great Barracuda
Reaching up to 4.5 ft. in length and as much as 30lbs the great barracuda deserves respect not only as a killer but as an incredible game fish.
Capable of sprinting to 40 mph in two body lengths these fish can offer bone crushing blows to unsuspecting prey. The hit is explosive and the result is sure disaster for his target. I should know, I was attacked by a barracuda in 1993 while diving off of Marathon here in the Florida Keys. Since then I have targeted these fantastic sport fish with a fever on light tackle.
