All you may need to catch a barracuda is a tube Lure and a high speed retrieve. Barracuda simply cannot resist the tasty prospect of eating what a tube lure represents, they cannot help but strike them. I have seen barracuda jump for seemed like miles with bright green surgical tubing and hooks in their face. Barracuda can be caught throughout the world and in all of its oceans and can grow to be enormous. This collection of short Youtube videos features barracuda close up, being caught, and displayed for the camera. I invite you to view the top 5 barracuda fishing videos published on Youtube.
5) “Barracuda Fishing In The Lower Keys”
published in 2009 by mtbpt
This short barracuda fishing video shows a straight meat barracuda catch in the Florida Keys. 10lb. fishing tackle and a lime green tube lure are used to trick this fish shortly after leaving the dock. In this apparent father/son fishing charter, Capt. Matt films the fight and takes trophy footage of a great barracuda.
4) “70lb Guinean Barracuda – Fishing in The Gambia, West Africa“
published 2009 by FishingGambia
In this amazing video, a massive barracuda is displayed. Barracuda are present around the glode, but it seems Africa has some of the biggest. A fish this big can fight very hard with line peeling runs and incredible jumps. Not everyone gets to catch such a monster in their life, but for this lucky angler a battle with giant barracuda ended with a slimy reward.
3) “Sight Fishing For Barracuda In The Florida Keys“
published in 2008 by keysguide
I picked this video because it demonstrates a typical Florida Keys barracuda fishing experience. Capt. Scott Yetter has his angler sight casting a green tube lure to fish on the shallow flats. A typical day in the Keys may produce many shots at big flats barracudas. Notice how the angler in this video reels his lure as fast as possible to attract a strike.
2) “Key West Marquesas Barracuda Fishing with Dream Catcher Charters and Capt. Steven Lamp. 2005”
published in 2009 by DreCatcher
This short video is another classic example of a Keys barracuda fishing experience. Footage of cast, persuit, and strike are featured. Capt. Steve Lamp and his customers enjoy success on what looks like an off-season day. It seems barracuda have no fear when they decide to strike. As you can see here, these fish will track a lure right up to the boat!
1) “BARRACUDA at popping. Biggest in YouTube. KILWA. Africa.”
published in 2007 by avipesqueta
This barracuda fishing video looks a like a battle supreme. A doubled over rod brings a huge barracuda to the boat side where a masterful gaff shot controls the fish before it is brought aboard. These fish will eat just about anything if you give it to them right, and clearly, a top water plug was used to fool this great barracuda.
