Default Barracuda in the surf

Went to johnson beach sat. Hooked a barracuda 15 to 20lbs,It jumped 3 times before cutting my line. Just wanting to know if its common for them to be there. I have fished jb for 4 yrs and this is the first time i have seen one.

They cruise around the piers pretty often in the summertime. I've snorkled beside them in 4 feet of water a bunch in the bahamas

Friday afternoon I was on my paddleboard in the sound near the pass.

I was hooked up with the 30,000,000th million blue fish of the day when i saw this huge barracuda eat the entire blue fish.

Drag didn’t even really even scream, i only had 15# fluorocarbon leader that pretty much instantly broke when the barracuda ate.
