Default Baracudas

So there's tons of Cudas around the rig. They'll eat Hardtails off a sabiki but they won't mess with them on my line. I tried fishing them like kings but somethings turning them off as they approach my bait. I'm using big wire, I think it's 80lb. I'm assuming that's the problem. Any tips???? I just want to hook one for the fight them popping it off.

Get a cuda tube from a tackle shop. Cast it out and retrieve it as fast as you can.

That's my next problem, I'm using a 6/0 on a helicopter rod, no casting going on. Guess I could float it out on a bottle then retrieve it.

Yeah, or if the fish are down a bit and under your boat you can drop it down and retrieve it straight up. I'm sure there are other ways to catch them but the method I mentioned is the only intentional method I have tried.

Thanks, is it a similar fight as a king? Long run near surface?

It is a similar fight. They might fight down in the water column a little more and they can be a little harder to turn. They jump a little sometimes also. They're a fun fight but be careful when they're next to the boat and while unhooking them.
