Hi guys,

This was my yesterday's catch...we could not weigh it as it was very late. But guessing around 6-8kgs

Caught on trolling on Prithiv's boat and with 5 other friends, Samson (new comer), Bhaskar, Preetham, Ravi Vasudev, Santosh (Bhaskar's son).

Bhaskar and Ravi caught similar sized Barracuda.

Sea was little Choppy and water was murky and we left into the sea at 5pm and returned back at 7pm

Hi Robert,

Seems like all the BIG ones are behind you. After a king sized KING this is again a King sized. :o

Great going. Just love watching these picks.

Thanks for sharing.

Regards,
Raj

Rob,

A fine catch again.

I caught a similar barracuda in Goa but was disappointed with its fighting
ability - it gave up rather easily after a couple of short runs.

Did it give you a decent fight?

My guide fed 20 Russians with the barracuda !

I have often wondered how they survived, as these reef fish are known
to carry ciguatera poison !!

What are your thoughts on this?

Kind regards,

Kingfish

hi Kingfish,

On the east coast of India we dont have reef except for deep ones and so we dont have ciguatera poisoning in barracuda. And they fight well as long as you fight them with 10 to 15 lb tackle.

Mani i dont know how many more fishes do that but even the barramundis do it very often atleast once if the drag is tight enough or once the fish is reeled close enough with the rod tip down just raise the tip walla! u get your tail dance . It is a beautifull sight to watch i'm just waiting to get that on camera. HOPE FLOATS.

hi guys i got my luck. I was the only one to land a 8kg barracuda today. This time i enjoyed reeling and landing it. we started at 5pm from the chennai port and trolling for more than an hour and we almost gave up with four trolling rods and lines in different length waiting to be struck. While we were returning back dejected, at the entrance of the harbor got a strike and i landed this beautiful fish. Was so happy as the trip was very fruitful.

The line was a 60Lbs braid with a Rapala XDD Laser Pro 190 H57 Bait Fish lure. when we landed it was almost 7Pm not much of light.
