1. Caught a couple of these chaps on light tackle using crabs. Great fighters - had to haul him in 3 times before I landed him. Went out with Capt. Scott Green - Rodbender fishing charters. (he's a great guy and highly recommended)

Anyway to finish the story. Decided to take some fish back with me to NY. Permit are great eating. As my luck would have it the airline lost my cooler in the height of summer and it was delivered 12 hours late. The guy from the airline wanted to know what was smelling. Had to toss out 40lbs of great eating fish. :(

2. Spanish mackerel - great colors. Caught on a jig. Related to King fish and they take off as well. Also cuaght some Tuna and Barracuda trolling. If you ask me Cuda are excellent fish to catch, they hit live bait like crazy & jump right out of the water when hooked and are not finicky in the least!
I had a permit that I had hooked torn in half by one of them.

I agree with you .. Permit are great to eat ... I had some when I was in Florida last April for a seminar on travel ... and Cuda are even better when caught fresh and just made into steaks with garlic , some lemon jiuce and some pepper

Welcome aboard n Tight Lines

Fred,

Sure you ate cuda? I would not compare Barracuda with Permit as far as eating qualities go, perhaps you had something else, cuda don’t taste very good and most cuda are infected with ciguatera. I would stay from them..

Hi guys, from what I've heard one has to be careful when eating cuda. Barracuda flesh becomes poisonous if it eats the flesh of poisonous reef fish, which may explain why barracudas in some areas are poisonous, while those from elsewhere are perfectly safe to eat. Usually the locals know if it's safe to eat or not .. never tried it for that reason and everyone I ever caught we chopped up for bait - usually "Jewfish"

The thing about Ciguatera is that it is an accumulative poison that builds up in a persons body. So two persons may eat the same fish, same quantity but only one may get affected at the time (if his level has reached a critical limit). The other persons ciguatera levels would be below the critical limit.

It all depends on how much poison is accumilated in ones body.
