Barracuda on Popper

Barracuda on Popper

Went out to the reef yesterday casting poppers. Lost two poppers to big unstoppable fish on 60lb braid/8000 Stella with the drag cranked to full. Trouble is they don't have to go far to bust you off in 8 feet of water over bommies! Only managed this 'cuda and a few small sweetlip. Maybe next time!

cheers,

steve

Nice work mate, looks like he smashed up that popper, love how you can see the reflection of the reef just behind you. Looks like an absolute magic day as well, been a while since we've had one of those over here in the west, well, that I've managed to get out on.

Cheers,
Adam

Yeah Adam that reef's a very pretty place. The water there was at least 8ft deep, but looks shallow because it's so clear out that far. The Cuda made a bit of a mess of that Roosta, but the next fish stole it off me (bummer). Going out for another bash tomorrow.

cheers,
