They are good eating, caught them off the coast of Liberia while working there.First time I have seen a barracuda. While I knew they were in the Keys, not expecting mid-State (Sebastian Inlet). Asked a Park ranger, describing the fish and he was thinking Snook (I knew were too wide) and realized I had my camera in his office. Showed him and he confirmed, noting while rarely caught, frequent the reefs just offshore.
Incidently, yesterdays photo of the beach and this photo where both taken from a jetty/pier at the inlet.
