One of the fish Capt. Larry often gets asked about it is barracudas. Perhaps because of their fearsome reputation, they are a source of interest for many people, whether they are from the local area or just visiting. Ernie Sbaschik from Tampa, got to see this beast up close & personal when he caught a barracuda recently on a trip with Capt. Larry.
Before the barracuda was caught, it managed to eat three of their hooked groupers. Ernie and party were fishing in about 85 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island, and besides the toothy barracuda pictured above, they also caught many red and gag grouper, snapper and a feisty tiger shark that was carefully released.
To the left is Capt. Larry holding two nice gag groupers caught using sardines in about 80 ft offshore of Anna Maria Island (photo by Bill Evans). On the same trip, they also wrangled more gag and red grouper, plus some miscellaneous snappers, sharks, and two smoker kingfish. The grouper bite was so hot Capt. Larry had to go back for more after his charter ended! Now is the time to come on out and you get some of this sweet gag grouper action.
