Really shouldnt eat Barracuda as you have a greater risk of Ciguatera poisoning. Is a toxin produced by dinoflagulates which are ingested when predatory reef fish eat other fish

Small barracuda are safe to eat and I hear that they are good. Cubans down here eat them quite often. I doubt that they would eat one that big though.

Very true. In fact, when we were in the Tortugas, we went to trade liquor for fish at a group of Cuban Fishing boats. They wanted to give us Barracuda (we refused) and they had a lot of it. Got Tuna instead. THey took them fresh and filleted them for us... more than we could eat. In return, we gave them a half of a fifth of Jack Daniels. THe Cubans thought they got the better deal. I suspect Jack Daniels is hard to come by down there.

We also ended up (after the deal was made) bringing back a bunch of toys to the boats for their kids which they heartily accepted. The Cubans are good people and those kinds of things really help them out (in my opinion).

I've heard that if you are heading to the Tortugas, then take extra alcohol and cigs to trade with the fisherman.

Yep. Time before last, we got 17 lobster tails for half a fifth of Albertsons vodka!!! I think we had some hot beer somewhere too that we threw in. And again, they thought they got the better end of the deal!!!

DId not know about the cigs, but don't smoke so I would probably still have opted for the liquor.

Smaller fish are always safer when it comes to toxins...they've eaten fewer other fish, so have less of a concentration in them. Large apex predators, like Barracuda are the worst, since the smaller fish they eat act as toxin concentrators for them.

You know what the first rule of sailing is? ...Love. You can learn all the math in the 'verse, but you take
a boat to the sea you don't love, she'll shake you off just as sure as the turning of the worlds. Love keeps
her going when she oughta fall down, tells you she's hurting 'fore she keens. Makes her a home.

Absolutely correct for SD. However you are still eating toxins when consuming even the smallest of apex predtors. Poisons even in the smallest concentrations for an adult are different in children with smaller body masses.

Stay with the tuna and mahi...I wouldnt even eat small barracuda, because even if the toxins dont kill you you can get very sick

not much point trying to be sporting if you are looking for a main course, so the yoyos are by far the simplest way to go. i have caught numerous kingfish and small tuna trolling small green squids with lead heads. use a rubber bungee tied to a cleat or stanction and a clothes peg on a piece of string - shorter than the bungee - to give you a warning. works perfectly, the only problem is dealing with the fish when you get it on board. i have tried filleting them in a bucket holding them by the tail - not recommended - and eventually settled for a 5 x 2 feet rubber matt. don't step (read slip) on the matt when it's wet though!

buy a cheap speargun too - it's quite addictive even though i was apprehensive at first because i though it was unfair! it's actually challenging and good exercise while on the hook

Great advice. DId you hang them by the tail and bleed them before fillleting?

I used to use Cuban yoyos but a few years ago switched to a rod as it makes it a bit easier to land the fish. Also the rod was a gift. My favourite lure is a cedar plug but in the past I have used the shiny bags from box wine for homemade lures. Just cut them up and wrap around a big hook. Unfortunately the bags in box wine are no longer shiny now. A cedar plug usually lasts me the season. Usually get mahi if they're running, some tuna and the occasional wahoo. The photo is a mahi I caught off Cat Island. Too heavy to hold up so I filleted it first. Actually I didn't think of a photo until after I had filletted it and realized how big it was.
