Barracuda

Fishing for Barracuda

Barracuda are apex predators of the flats, they are built for two things: speed and destructive force. Barracuda are opportunistic predators which rely on speed and surprise to overwhelm their prey. Once they are in striking distance, their razor like teeth make short work of their prey. When fishing for a barracuda you will need to bring your A game for stripping in the fly, you can't strip fast enough!

Fishing tackle for barracuda

For barracuda you really want to be armed with a 9 foot 10 weight. The leader needs to have a wire trace attaching the leader to the fly, without this you have very little chance of landing a cuda. You need a good quality large arbor saltwater proof reel with a smooth drag.

Fishing flies for barracuda

Barracuda might be the most simplistic fish for fly selection.  All you need is a needle fish imitation and you are good to go. Make sure that the fly has a trailing hook as cuda's typically attack from the back.
