What is this fish??

HI guys went out for another fish yesterday. Got onto a few trickie snapper, but that was about it. Full moon at the moment, so there is plenty of current and shitloads of sharks. Anyway old mate caught this fish today. Is it a small barracuda??? Cheers

Had needle teeth! We were not sure if it was a snook, apparently thery do get a few up here. My call was a cuda, but they were saying snook.  Do snook have sharp teeth or not, never caught one?

Ie a Barracuda. Little one. It has the thick body with stripes developing. I am possitive that is a cuta.

That looks like a snook to me, there like a plague down Espy from the Jetty (home town seen and caught plenty) thick ones like that are common fodda down there, great smoked (hickory) thats bout it otherwise great bait.



Just get me back on the water
