Reeling in a Big Barracuda while Surf Fishing in Florida. Visit our website: blacktiphfishing.org SPONSORS: barrettrods.com  June, 2010 [Admin: Just need to make this observation. A long, drawn out fight weakens the fish and if you have no intentions of keeping it, it hurts a fish’s chance for surviving. I love light-tackle fishing and enjoy a good fight as anyone, however, its always a good idea to make sure you can bring your catch quickly to a landing, handle it carefully, and release it as soon as possible to minimize the stress it puts on the fish.
