Barracuda at the rigs

I had a blast one evening catching big barracuda on them on a spinning rod at Marlin. They would crush the waxwings with a huge boil and a ripping run. I was using them without a wire leader and the barracuda seemed to hit them so they were hooked on the back hook without biting the line.

Inshore waxwings

They might get a tarpon, bonito, surface red snapper, etc. It has to be something near the surface as they run shallow and of the right size. I confess I use jigs most of the time so I haven't used them nearshore. Anytime something is busting the surface they might be useful.
