GREAT BAR­RACUDA

(Sphyraena bar­racuda)

Sport Fishing - - FISH FACTS -

With one of the creepi­est faces in fish­dom, the great bar­racuda of­ten lives up to its fish-chop­ping rep­u­ta­tion, hang­ing around drift­ing boats to nail hooked fish as they’re cranked in. On the flats, their burst speed at strike is one of the fastest of any fish. Cu­das are found in most trop­i­cal seas; the IGFA record is 87 pounds, 3 ounces, from Christ­mas Is­land, Kiri­bati, in 2012.
