We spent quite a bit of time getting prepared for barracuda before we left for our trip to South Andros Island (you can check out our how-to  'cuda rig videos on our blog as well).  Once we were there, we spent more time stalking these aggressive fish on the flats - both on foot and from the boat.  It took a little while to crack the code, but we were finally able to connect.
