Huge Barracuda caught on Marlin Chaser

 

After a morning of inshore fishing on Marlin Chaser where we caught several Snappers, Jacks and Yellow Tails, we dropped the clients of at the beach restaurant in Juanillo Beach in Cap Cana, for them to prepare the fresh caught fish for lunch for the clients.

 

After dropping the clients of, we hit the gas to get back to the marina. But as we are cruising over the shallow in front of Juanillo beach, we passed a huge Barracuda. I was so irritated that I didn’ have a bait ready, but sometimes things happen out of the blue.

 

Less then 2 min later I spotted another BIG dark shadow moving in the shallows. I called out to Capt. Pico to slow the boat down and I jumped down from the fly bridge. I reached for the first rod I could see and hooked on a hook on a metal leader. I grabbed a small Jack from the livewell, and put the hook through it’s back. I casted the bait about 10 feet in front of the Barracuda, and with in seconds I was fighting the MONSTER.

After about 10 min of fight, we landed the huge Barracuda.

The monster weighed in at 31lb (15kg), and was over 4 feet long.

 

I hope you enjoyed the video’s of the fight.
