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 and our youtube channel). 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. These fish are super fast - and aggressive. Below is what happened when a 'cuda and a fellow angler met up in shallow water on the flats on day one.
This footage was our last fish on the last day of our six-day trip to Andros South. It hit a size 6 chartreuse and white Deceiver like a Mack Truck. It was super fun way to end the trip. Here is a quick diagram of the basic rigging we used.
