Toothy Things Off Destin
Launched out of Crab Trap yesterday morning. Saw some bait busting just past the second bar but only managed to sabiki up one very large threadfin. . . luckily I had a back up of frozen cigars and a few new Yozuri deep diving plugs. Hit the tugboat for a second try at bait and couldn't find anything but a couple of pinfish. I threw my threadfin in the drink just above the tug and after a few moments my reel started screaming. Thought it was a nice king until I saw those teeth! Quick and VERY careful dehooking and pic. I settled for the bait I had and started off on the very long trek to the 80 ft mark, maybe 4 miles out. Remoras were merciless on my frozen cigars so I switched to two Yozuris . . . had a decent hit at the 75 ft mark, and another that resulted in a $16 Yozuri donation to the fish gods . . . I then switched back to a frozen bait/Yozuri troll and WHAM, nice king hooked up on the deadbait. Lesson learned, rig up a wire leader for the Yozuris!

Man it looks nice out there.
Cuda is one thing I have never caught in the kayak. Pretty cool.

Cool! I think that is the first barracuda caught in these parts from a yak - with a photo to prove it. Way to go.

Yeah, those teeth are nasty on a barracuda.
Thanks for sharing your report and the two nice photos.

Have you ever eaten barracuda? One old salt swore it tasted just like chicken...
