In winter, big barracuda move onto the shallows and can be taken on fly on most oceanside flats from Miami to Key West and beyond. Though you can sight cast to them while a friend or guide poles the boat, big ‘cudas, wise and sharp-eyed, are wary of hull slap and approaching boats. A good solution is to stake out at the dropoff of a flat where current is strong, and place filleted, fresh mullet in a mesh bag. Tossing out a few liveys, such as pilchards, are the icing on the cake for cudas, quickly getting the fish primed for feeding both on the flats and over shallow wrecks. Once fired up, barracuda will strike fly patterns such as Deceivers, Needlefish imitations, and poppers.
