Do You work for the Gallup Poll Co.,...... ?????
Kidding .... ;)

I'll tell you what....I don't ever target Barracuda & I find that when encountered they will usually bite a Beer tab.... :p

But interestingly enough,Today I noticed that I could NOT git bit on a live bait.....The Croc's were King,followed by scrambled Egg Iron.
I never did throw swimbaits as I was too busy decking fish and losing Croc's due to light line and not re-tying after a few fish...:I even lost one on my Saltist w/65# spectra & 40# flouro.....

Going with the same theme and another good question...

What's your Favorite Barrcuda recipe?

Here's mine:

I like to cut the fillets into smaller cubes/rectangles.

I then rub butter on foil that will later become a foil package for the fish.

I add some chopped onion and potato and cubed tomato after the seeds and goop have been removed. Place all the ingredients in the foil pouch and place a thin slice of lemon over the fish. Seal the pouch and grill for approx. 15 minutes over medium heat.

Now comes the tricky part...

Be very careful when you remove the pouch from the grill as the steam can burn.

Ounce the pouch has been safely opened carefully slide the contents into the nearest trash recepticle and wad the remaining foil into a ball and pop it into your mouth and devour while still warm.

Simple recipe and simply delicious!

That recipe is best if your barracuda was aged all day in a burlap bag ,in the sun. in front of the bait tank-where everyone can kick or step on the bag while geting their bait on a cattleboat. You can save the leftover Tin Foil for dressing up a hook next time you go fishing for more cudas.

A Tady 9 or a Pep 5 with the hook removed. That way I wouldn't have to touch one of those things again. I used to have more fun seeing how many times I could get bit on a single cast.
I would use these same jigs with a single hook. That way they're easier to shake.
Always the slow grind retrieve.
The old Scrounger lure use to be pretty deadly on them also.
Calico King, I agree with you about eating the foil!

My best ever was a big, light, black and white Tady 45 knockoff.

They like the rubber as well.

They smoke up pretty good
Agreed, they smoke up very well. :)

And fresh, well cared for barracuda is actually pretty good on the grill, and also does very well for tacos.

I'm more "Old School" on Barries. I had a small business in the early to mid 90's (Summertime Feathers) making leadheaded feathers. Here's one that was deadly on Big Logs

1 1/2 oz. Yankee
Excellent post - I remember fishing the feather with piano wire - Ghostboy!
