I have been having a great time fishing with our good friend Harvey Katz and had the chance to switch-up from flats fishing to heading out about 11 miles in the Gulf of Mexico for some trophy barracuda action.
We hooked-up to a half-dozen big fish but only Harvey was able to land this trophy. We had wire leaders break & lines snapped. We fished light-action gear and really gave the fish a chance. These ocean barracuda hit hard and fight like crazy…what a change from chasing redfish on the flats!
